Basque political prisoner ends hunger strike
Last Friday Basque political prisoner Lorentxa Gimon ended a 39-day-hunger-strike. She was the only Basque prisoner in the northern French jail of Roanne. She demanded that she was transferred to another jail where she could share block with other Basque prisoners. On Friday the prison's principal finally agreed to the transfer.
