This week around the world individuals and organisations are joining an international action to express their anger at the continued imprisonment of the 5 hunger strikers in Athens.
Starting on Sunday 23 November people will begin smashing plates around the world to mark Simon Chapman's 50th day of hunger strike.This plate smashing is in sharp to the Greek concept of Kefi which is associated with good humour when a group of friends enjoy the special mix of food, wine, good company, atmosphere and fun. Rather than breaking plates as an act of joy & good-naturedness, by contrast this act of plate smashing indicates the seriousness of our mood as the condition of the hunger strikers reaches life threatening proportions. We urge people to join us to publicly smash plates to demostrate their anger in relation to the prosecutor dragging his feet regarding the urgent application for bail on humanitarian grounds entered by the legal team 12 days ago.
