Police didn’t enter the building of the hunger strikers yet, but they are now preparing. They evacuated the streets around and do not allow anybody to reach the building.

Update from Athens (23h 07):
It seems that after hours of negotiations the police operation is avoided. Migrants assembly agreed to move from the law school in order to continue the hunger strike and set the following conditions: the place that they will move will be free of police presence, supporting and solidarity people will also have all time access in the building and that migrants and supporters will leave from the law school publicly, as a demonstration.
Since hours Athens’ center is blocked by thousands of policemen, and hundreds of supporters couldn’t reach the law school building.
