Amir Hampay Freed After 24 Days of Hunger Strike

Via Mosaik Support Center – After 24 days on hunger strike and three months in prison, Amir Hampay has been released from detention by court order and reunited with his brother, Arash. #KhozinHussein and #BahroozArash remain imprisoned, and in deteriorating condition. Arash Hampay and Solidarity Activists Lesvos will continue their hunger strike in solidarity with their call for justice, freedom and dignity.

The hunger strikers are calling on activists overseas to show their support by fasting for 24 hours and publicising their action on social media with #freedomstrikelesvos, holding the attached poster. To echo Arash’s words: “we will eat of the sweet food of freedom together with the other hunger strikers when they are released. Oppression is destined to fail. I have confidence in that because of the people who are my allies. I have confidence in that because I believe that we are right and that we will win.”
