You walk down toward Patision Ave, a brisk tempo as the cold bites in. The rumours have been swirling around corporate media all day long: “the hunger strike will end any moment now”. But the hunger strikers are determined. They reject the government’s bogus proposal and carry on. At Patision, a sight to warm you up, hundreds of people in solidarity have already gathered. A struggle snubbed by the Left and ignored by most anarchists brought 1500-2000 people out to the streets of Athens last night. The largest change starts with firmly holding your ground: it starts with keeping on fighting in spite of so-far minimal support of a lethargic social movement.
The hunger strikers must win: for themselves, for all migrants here, for all of us.
