Leyla Güven: 190 days on hunger strike
HDP Hakkari MP and DTK co-chair Leyla Güven has reached day 190 of her hunger strike demanding the end of isolation against Abdullah Öcalan.
Thousands of prisoners and dozens of activists around the world are on hunger strike demanding the end of isolation against Abdullah Öcalan, who is imprisoned in İmralı Prison.
HDP Hakkari MP Leyla Güven has been fasting for 190 days as she went on hunger strike on 7 November 2018 effectively launching the resistance. She was then held illegally in prison, despite having been elected in parliament.
The 14 Kurdish activists on hunger strike in Strasbourg have reached day 151 of their fast, while prisoners have reached day 152.
On 30 April 15 prisoners turned their action into death fast and have been joined by 15 more on 10 May.
