Basque political prisoners on hunger strike after abuses from French guards

Basque political prisoners Itziar Moreno (Bilbao) and Ohiana Garmendia (Santurzti), imprisoned at Muret Seysses prison (Dijon), began a hunger strike two days ago (May 27) to denounce the abuses suffered at the hands of French prison guards, one of which pushed and threw Moreno to the ground arbitrarily and later punished her with punishment cell (isolation). 

Yesterday she was denied toilet paper and, upon her protest, sent again to isolation. These kinds of abuses seem to be increasing in the Burgundian jail.
