  • Summary: The twenty-eight Mayors who are on hunger strike do “water-drinking sessions” so that the people know that they exist.They went to San Sebastian to see the prisoners but they have had some hassle with the local police, the “ertzantza”. First they went to the hospital to see the prisoners admitted there, and afterwards they went to the Martutene prison. There they played the chistu and sang. The prisoners came to their windows to watch. But when they went to the women’s prison, the ertzantza arrived and took away the Mayor of Lezo. They others went to denounce the action and he was released. They have come back and to have a change of scenery they have had their “water-drinking session” in Altsasu.The Mayors will continue their hunger strike until Saturday.
