The message in English:

February 21st, 2011

28th day of Hunger Strike

to our comrades, the hunger striker immigrants of Athens, and to all the people who show us solidarity
Comrade hunger strikers in Athens, and friends who show us solidarity in Athens and Salonica,
We send you our sixth message, while being on the 27th day of our hunger strike.
Notwithstanding our fatigue, our daily struggle with fainting and with hospitals
We are still here, and we have decided
That this struggle of ours will win, because it is a struggle for all migrants,
A struggle for our honour and dignity.
We are on hunger strike, so that we exit the darkness of illegality
And enter the light of social life.
We know that the darkest point of the night is just before dawn.
That’s the point at which we are now, but we stand upright, because we think of our comrades
And of the solidarity shown by the people of Greece.
We are strengthened by all these solidarity gestures, small and big,
Coming from thousands of greeks and foreigners.
We see in the faces of the people who show solidarity to us a radiant future,
It has nothing to do with the barbarity that you see every day in the tv.
The government must satisfy our just demands.
For whatever happens from now on to our health and our life,
Responsible will be the intransigeance of the government.
The least we can do from here,
From the seventh floor of the Thessaloniki Labour Centre (Bourse de Travail)
Is to send you a big thank you!
And to assure you that we will win this fight!

The song in English:

[We send greetings in struggle!
We demand freedom!
Oh, you, fascist government,
Our demand is just!
Why is the state so nervous?
Today, at most tomorrow,
We want the papers of our legalisation, we do not discuss that!
Workers, it’s time to fight!
You have been passive for too long!
They treat us without justice!
We remind you again of our hunger strike!

SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON!]
