    Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) parliamentary alliance leader Alekos Alavanos, on a visit to Crete, on Saturday went to the public economic services in Chania where 15 economic immigrants were on their 19th day of a hunger strike demanding their legalization in Greece.

    Alavanos was briefed on their condition, and in statements afterwards said that their demands was just, and called for simplification of the conditions for their acquisition of a residency permit.

    "Their demand is absolutely justified, in other words simplification of the conditions and the documentation on the basis of which they can acquire a residency permit. We call on the government to immediately solve the problem of these 15 people and proceed quickly with legislative actions aimed at this simplification," Alavanos said, adding that it was necessary for the migration law to be changed immediately.
