A group of refugees have come to the Brandenburg Gate in protest of their dire living conditions, explaining it to the world with a hunger strike. The demonstration began about a week ago on 9 October and shifted to exclude water on Tuesday. The extremity of the strike reflects the dreadful conditions which these people are facing. In many cases, a visa was issued on humanitarian grounds – but one which excludes the right to work, leaving the person with few choices. By the night of 16 October, a large number of the protestors had been taken to the hospital. I’ll leave the rest to the photos.
