Hunger strike of prisoners on day 3

PKK and PAJK prisoners are on a three-day hunger strike for Öcalan and ill prisoners.

Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and Free Women’s Party of Kurdistan (PAJK) prisoners in Turkish jails started a three-day hunger strike on September 12 to protest against the isolation regime imposed on Abdullah Öcalan, and to demand the release of ill prisoners.

The hunger strike, set to end today, is participated by thousands of prisoners.

Writing on behalf of the PKK and PAJK prisoners in Turkey jails, Deniz Kaya had said the following;

“While raising our struggle for the achievement of a great and meaningful life, it must be known that we have not stopped at any moment to resist the attacks of fascism.

As PKK and PAJK prisoners in Turkey and Northern Kurdistan jails, we have always resisted and never submitted to the torture of the fascist AKP-MHP alliance.”

Deniz Kaya said they would never accept the isolation imposed on Öcalan and emphasised that ill prisoners were dying because they were denied treatment.

The statement added; “We call on all our people and humanity to raise their voice against the fascist regime developed by the Turkish state. We once again remember all our comrades who lost their lives and we declare that we will raise the scale of struggle to honour their memories”.
