Undocumented migrants seeking status go on hunger strike in Belgium

Hasni Abderrazzek, 44, a Tunisian asylum seeker, is seen with his lips sewed together in a room on the campus of Belgium university ULB in Brussels, Belgium, June 29, 2021. Concern over a weeks-long hunger strike by hundreds of undocumented migrants in Belgium's capital has mounted this week after four men stitched their lips shut to stress their demands for legal recognition and access to work and social services.

An asylum seeker on hunger strike for more than a month is helped by a healthcare worker before being evacuated to a hospital on the campus of Belgium university ULB, June 29, 2021. Many of the migrants, who are mostly from South Asia and North Africa, have been in Belgium for years, some for more than a decade, but say their livelihoods have been put at risk by COVID-19 shutdowns that led to the loss of jobs.

An asylum seeker on hunger strike for more than a month, is transported to a hospital by healthcare workers, June 29, 2021. "We sleep like rats," said Kiran Adhikeri, a migrant from Nepal who worked as a chef until restaurants closed because of the pandemic. "I feel headaches, stomach pain, the whole body is full of pain." "I am begging them (the Belgian authorities), please give us access to work, like others. I want to pay taxes, I want to raise my kid here, in this modern city," he told Reuters, gesturing from his makeshift bed to where fellow hunger strikers lie listlessly on mattresses in the crowded room.

Asylum seekers lie in a room on the campus of Belgium university ULB, June 29, 2021. "Life is never a price worth paying and people have already gone to the hospital. That's why I really want to try to convince all persons and all organizations behind it to make sure they don't give a false hope," Mahdi said, when asked about the hunger strikers. "There are rules and regulations ... whether it is around education, whether it is around jobs, whether it is around migration, politics needs to have rules."

Youssef Bouzidi, a Moroccan asylum seeker on hunger strike for more than a month, is examined by a healthcare worker, June 29, 2021. Europe was caught off guard in 2015 when more than a million migrants made it to the bloc's shores, overwhelming security and welfare networks, and fomenting far-right sentiment. The European Union has proposed an overhaul of the bloc's migration and asylum rules to ease the burden on Mediterranean-shore countries, but many governments would rather tighten borders and asylum laws than accommodate new arrivals.
