Jean Goldsky Completes 13 Days of Hunger Strike

February 13, 1924
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

All Paris is watching with keen interest Jean Goldsky’s fight against death. Goldsky, who will complete today 13 days of hunger-striking, is unconscious. He has refused to partake of either food or water as a protest against the government’s refusal to grant him a retrial of the charges for which he was sentenced, Goldsky being accused of anarchistic agitation. The prisoner has been in jail for the past six years. A recent movement by friends of Goldsky, urging a retrial of the case because Goldsky is old and has but a short time to live, was stamped out by the Government.
