HUNGER STRIKE IN THE C.I.E. IN MÁLAGA BY THE 10 DEPORTED ALGERIANS
We received information today from “Capuchinos” (the C.I.E./Internment Centre for Foreigners in Málaga) that the 10 Algerian comrades who faced sanction for their hunger strike in Melilla are continuing to maintain their hunger strike following their arrest and detention.
In other news, 6 Indians from the state of Kashmir continue to demonstrate in the Plaza de España in Melilla now for over a month, and following 23 days on hunger strike.
In Melilla’s CETI, every night one sees tens of people of various nationalities looking for a place to sleep in the street to avoid the possibility of being captured in a police raid that would end in their expulsion after many years of being held here.
Tens of people are also asking constantly to be repatriated to their countries, as they are faced with a future of remaining stuck pointlessly in the CETI for years, and not being heard by anyone.
This is the current situation of humanitarian catastrophe in which hundreds of people locked up against their will in the city of Melilla have to live. This situation doesn’t seem to bother the political authorities at all, who continue to wheel around town as if on a fairground carousel. This leads us to think that they the only true interest of “the SYSTEM” is to portray the situation as one of indefinite threat and overcrowding in the CETI in Melilla, which allows them to receive subsidies and to keep their activities going as if they were “business as usual”. They forget that in this “business”, the “merchandise” ends up being human beings – men, women and children who have had to leave their homes for innumerable reasons, but for the most part as a result of war, corruption, looting, a lack of respect for human rights on the part of chieftains and dictators of all kinds subsidized by the EU and the US.
