HUNGER STRIKE IN GOTHENBURG

Today I talked to Omar Dafalla. He is on a hunger strike since May 21. [Editor's note: I will visit Gustaf Adolf square tomorrow again and take a picture.] They will arrange a manifestation outside the immigration agency on June 8. [Editor's comment: I will not participate due to the fact that certain political parties (socialists and communists) are involved in the demonstration. See a related post.]

Here is an excerpt from Jan Jekielek's article, Desperate Sudan Refugees Hunger Strike in Sweden.

Desperate after repeated rejections by the Swedish Migration Board to grant them asylum, seven Sudanese men have been on hunger strike in Gothenburg's Gustaf Adolf square since May 21. Another man, who already received a deportation order, is said to be participating while in hiding at an undisclosed location. (TheEpochTimes.com, 06/02/06.)
