Italy: Refugees go on Hunger Strike in Protest Against Italian Food

Diversity Macht Frei
October 12, 2017

Migrants protesting about food. It’s a familiar story: this time the asylum seekers housed by the Pisan Red Cross in the former convent of Cottolengo, locked themselves in the building to demand a different way of providing food.

Around fifty immigrants protested peacefully, refusing the food provided by the catering service. The reason? They want to be given payments in cash to buy ethnic food.


“Refugees” going on hunger strike? Hmmm. I think this is what we call a “self-solving problem”.
