Meta Backs Hunger strikers Demands, Urges Government to Launch Dialogue

"It is extremely necessary the immediate establishment of a dialogue between the Government and the striking women and oil workers for a more acceptable solution to their just demands in order to avoid the escalation of the situation with consequences for the health of the strikers," has said President Ilir Meta.

In an appeal to the government to start dialogue with representatives of the oil women workers, who are on hunger strike since many weeks in Ballsh, Meta said in a FB post on Wednesday that a solution as acceptable as possible to their just demands must be found to avoid escalation of the situation with consequences for the health of strikers.

"It is very important to make every effort, without further delay, for a responsible state and human treatment of this issue in order to resolve this serious social and humanitarian situation before we face health problems that could endanger the lives of the strikers,” said Meta. /argumentum.al
