It is now 53 days that hundreds of camp Liberty residents are on hunger strike. On this day, 50 of the hunger strikers were suffering from digestive problems, nausea, dimness of sight and hearing and other symptoms, and were put under medical care.
Behnam Karimi, writer and law-school graduate, said, “I’ve lost my trust in the pledges and commitments of the US and the UN. Their inaction in preventing the September 1st massacre and their continued silence and idleness in saving the lives of the hostages has left me no other choice than to have my voice heard through my hunger strike.”
