Salt and Water – a song written for the 300 hunger strikers

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jx3cyo31zAs

“… For your own people, at the time when you leave to emigrate you are
already as if dead, the evening table is laid and your place is empty. I
told them to weep for me for 40 days, and so it was. And we, if we die,
shall be forever sleeping peacefully. But those who do not give us papers
will never sleep peacefully. I want to say a few words to the Greek friends
I have made: You have entered my heart. We lived happily. And to all those
who brought us tribulations, and who robbed us of money: I forgive you as
though nothing happened. Farewell to you.

– Hassan, one of the 300 immigrant hunger
strikers
