The hunger strike undertaken by HDP Hakkari jailed Leyla Güven to demand an end to the isolation regime imposed on Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan is prompting solidarity actions all over Europe.

Kurds and their friends living in and around Frankfurt have launched a hunger strike on Friday.

"We will never accept the isolation regime imposed on leader Apo and we will be struggling against it everywhere and at any time”, the activists said.

The statement said that Kurds will continue to take action until the isolation of Öcalan is lifted and called on democratic sections of society to support their actions.

The action will continue until 20 December.
