Hunger strike in Amygdaleza, 21/8

Today, 21/8, detainees in Amygdaleza refused to eat, demanding to be released. The conditions in Amygdaleza are inhuman, and contact with the outside world is minimal because of COVID measures.


Hello. Today we did a hunger strike, we didn’t take food. For freedom. They’re not releasing people. I don’t know, now we didn’t take food here in Amygdaleza, the people with Algerian nationality didn’t take food and want to understand why we’re not getting out, why, only this… these people, some of whom have asked for deportation and have been waiting for eight, nine months. This is a prison for us, it’s not a camp, it’s not a detention centre for papers. Now it’s become like a prison, a prison without a trial.
