On 25th of January 2011, in Thessaloniki and Athens, 300 migrants started with a hunger strike. Their main demand is to be legalized and they claim the same political and social rights and obligations as Greek workers. The 300 migrants have been working for many years without any social or labor rights. On the first day of the hunger strike the immigrant workers have received support from unions and workers’ organizations, as well as from numerous people who have visited, asking to help and contribute in any way they can.
