You can read more about this in posts of this blog here (their first public statement featuring their demands and the context of the struggle), here (a summary of events of the first 10 days), and here (for the last 5 days, 20-25 Novemeber).  

Full information in Greek in  www.clandestina.org  and the Athens Indymedia

You can download and watch a video with hunger-strike footage here (no subtitled version yet, still worth-watching).

International public statements of support and solidarity, personal, collective or institutional, are very much and urgently needed.  Please, forward them to the Initiative for Solidarity at 

protoboulia.metanastes.chania@gmail.com (this is the collective established for organizing and promoting the struggle).  

THE HUNGER - STRIKERS’ DEMANDS ARE FAIR!

THEIR STRUGGLE IS A JUST CAUSE FOR ALL THOSE WHO OPPOSE FORTRESS EUROPE!

SOLIDARITY WITH THE CHANIA HUNGER STRIKERS!

15 students is a drop in the ocean. Sure you greek people wants to open borders to your albanian or turkish "brothers". A bit of common sense please. By the way, tonight I'll stuff myself with a nice kleftico.
