VIDEO TEXT

February 8, 2011

We, the 50 hunger strikers in Thessaloniki are sending our third message to the hunger strikers of Athens and to all people who show solidarity with our struggle.
We know that on Wednesday you are planning a big solidarity concert. Please project this video-message to the crowd.
In Thessaloniki  we are fine and we see support and solidarity growing day by day. This gives us strength.
Our comrades in Athens and our common struggle are constantly on our minds.
We say once again that we trust you and that we are determined to either get papers or die.
We would like to thank the solidarity movement . We know that they are doing their best to support our struggle.
We know that there are many difficulties. If we have solidarity, these difficulties can seem insignificant.
We appeal to the people of Athens  and of the whole country to not believe the lies on television.
You already know us very well and that is why you do not need television to inform you about us.
We are the people who work for you and with you.
We often meet in the street.
Our children go to the same schools.
You know our struggle is just.
You know it because your grandfathers were immigrants too.
We trust all of you and we are certain that in this hard battle you will choose the side of dignity and struggle.
You will choose the same side you take when you are on strike, when you are struggling for a better life in the hard times of the Crisis.
We know we shall win, not only because we are determined to win, but also because we are determined to win, but also because our struggle will ignite the flame  of struggle among Greeks and foreigners.
We know that tomorrow, Europe will be talking about the struggle of 300 immigrant workers in Greece, and how they changed history.
We know you will be on our side until our victory and we thank you for that.

 

STRIKERS’ SONG

We salute you, in struggle we greet you times three:

We demand, we demand, we demand to be free!

Oh you fascist government, our demands are just and right

The State is beginning to loose its might

We demand change and equality / Tomorrow or today

This is what should be done / This is what we say:

The papers should be granted, without further ado!

Workers, it’s time for you to rise and fight too

Sitting back and watching you’ve wasted time and strength alike

We are suffering great Injustice / We remind you of the strike!
