Prisoners in Espiye turn their protest into indefinite-non-alternating hunger strike

Some of the prisoners, who have been on a hunger strike for 55 days in the Giresun Espiye L Type Closed Prison, have shifted the protest into an indefinite-irreversible hunger strike.

The hunger strike launched by the prisoners in the Giresun Espiye L Type Closed Prison to protest the rights violations and the repression of the administration has entered its 55th day. Prisoners Erdal Emeç, Aydın Oğuz and Ahmet Budak have shifted the hunger strike into an indefinite-irreversible hunger strike. In a phone call to his family, Erdal Emeç, a sick prisoner, stated that the hunger strike would continue until their demands are met.

Emeç added that they would be put into solitary cells due to the indefinite-irreversible hunger strike they have started as of today.

Prisoner Metin Uyar, who called his family on the 40th day of the hunger strike, gave the following information: "With isolation, the prisoners' dignity, humanity and identity are trampled down. There is a fascist administration in the Espiye Prison. They are attacking our Kurdish identity directly. There is physical and psychological torture. They do not take our sick friends to hospitals, books in Kurdish are banned. Our wards have been raided for the last few days; our friends have been taken away in handcuffs. Some of our friends received health reports after being beaten. We have sick fellow inmates who are on the verge of death.”
