Sète activist on hunger strike for migrants

France 3/Scoop, Jun 21

An activist from Sète has been on a hunger strike for 10 days outside the doors of a Sète establishment, which hosts around 20 refugees.

The 54-year-old Sétois chained his ankle to a lamppost in front of the administrative detention center in Séte. Despite great physical fatigue, since he drinks only 6 litres of water enriched with mineral salts a day, his resolve is certain.

According to the activist “There are beatings, hunger strikes, suicide attempts, mutilations … and nobody knows it. We tell the story of what is happening on behalf of the French State in these areas of lawlessness.  We need to find homes for these migrants."

They are believed to be about 20 migrants, including two minors under 16, locked up in the building at the quai Mayol, waiting for some good news.
