Greece -Prison officers on hunger strike -April 12, 2012

Members of the Federation of Correctional Personnel Unions (OSYE, affiliate of ADEDY confederation) started a hunger strike on 7 April to protest against the dire overpopulation in all Greek correctional facilities, the chronic understaffing and unpaid night and overtime since 2010. EPSU and PSI that back up the protest are organising solidarity messages in this fight arguing that economic considerations can never justify the ill treatment of prisoners and of staff.
