Iranians go on hunger strike in front of White House to free seven Camp Ashraf hostages

NCRI – On Monday, November 25, a number of compatriots and families of martyrs and PMOI members in Camp Liberty began their hunger strike in front of the White House in Washington to demand the immediate intervention by the US President and Secretary of State to secure the release of the seven Ashraf hostages.

At the same time, the hunger strike in Camp Liberty, Geneva, London, Berlin, Ottawa and Melbourne has entered its thirteenth week with fresh volunteers joining the protest.  Since last week, fellow Iranians in Italy and Sweden have also begun hunger strikes in Rome and Stockholm.

On the 87th day of the hunger strikes, Mrs Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, once again asked friends of Camp Ashraf and PMOI members imprisoned in Camp Liberty, who are in a critical condition and close to death in the cities of Geneva, Berlin, Ottawa and Melbourne, to end their hunger strikes, especially because new volunteers have arrived that carry on their protest.

 Despite repeated requests and special messages from Mrs Rajavi, the hunger strikers have continued to refuse food and medical treatment in their ongoing protest to secure the release of the hostages and at the massacre of PMOI members in Ashraf.
