ASYLUM SEEKERS ON HUNGER STRIKE IN Sweden – NO TO DEPORTATIONS TO AFGHANISTAN

by Zabi Rashidi

 
Five Afghan asylum seekers have been on hunger strike in Boden from the 18th of April. For the first one day there were five hunger strikers. By going on hunger strike they are opposing their deportation to Afghanistan, for they have reason to believe that their lives are in danger there.
The Sweden Immigration Service has refused to grant asylum to them. The hunger striking men have appealed to the Administrative Immigration of Sweden about the negative response to their asylum claims but fear that the appeal will be rejected.
