hunger_strike_day_46

46 days have passed since the residents of camp Liberty have started their hunger strike, demanding the release of 7 camp Ashraf hostages in custody of Maliki and the protection of the residents of camp Liberty by UN Blue Helmets. Today, 33 of the hunger strikers were put under medical care due to the symptoms they suffered from the hunger strike.

Despite their deteriorating health state, the hunger strikers have made it clear that they will not stop until their just demands are met. They hold the US and UN responsible for the safety and security of the seven hostages and are outraged by their continued silence and inaction.

The hunger strikers call on all organizations and people across the world to join them in their plight and to put pressure on the Iraqi government to release the seven hostages.
