With the intention of continuing to fight for his health and his freedom and due to the extreme state of his health and the weakness that it has brought him, Iosu Uribetxeberria has ended the hunger strike that he has been on for the past 15 days.

It is a completely personal decision and only responds to the extreme situation that he has been forced to live in and that has deteriorated even more his very delicate health. According to what Herrira has learned, Iosu Uribetxeberria has stated that in spite of the cancer which is attacking him more every day, he is going to continue fighting for his health and his freedom.

It is an important news item that we found out this morning and Herrira wishes to state the following: Our total respect for the decision taken by Iosu Uribetxeberria and to announce that Herrira will continue with the mobilizations to seek his freedom, which is something that corresponds to him by law. Things as they are, tomorrow we are calling on all of those in favour of the freedom of Iosu and the other 13 gravely ill Basque political prisoners, for a change in the penitentiary policy, favourable towards respecting all human rights and committing towards peace and a solution, to come to the Donostia Hospital to support a massive fast for the freedom of Iosu.
