Emerging Solidarities

In December 2010, thirty-five migrant workers went to the town hall in Ioannina, a small city in the west of Greece, and began a public hunger strike, which lasted 12 days. Their demand was to be paid for months of work at a large tomato plantation by their employer who had treated them as slaves. Their public protest made them visible and soon attracted the support of local people. Political support turned into personal relationships, which led to the formation of a community.
