Two more prisoners go on hunger strike

Kurdish hunger strike resistance in prisons continues growing.

More prisoners are joining the hunger strike campaign demanding an end to the isolation regime imposed on Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan.

Political prisoners Ramazan Özlük and Welat Duman in Tekirdağ No.2 Prison have announced going on an indefinite and non-alternating hunger strike.

In a message through their relatives, Özlük and Duman said “We will continue the hunger strike resistance until the isolation ends.”

The indefinite hunger strike resistance was first initiated by DTK Co-chair and HDP MP Leyla Güven in Amed prison who is on the 86th day of fast. She was released from prison on the 79th day of her hunger strike which she continues at her home in Amed since.

Around 250 political prisoners in Turkey and North Kurdistan are on indefinite and non-alternating hunger strike for 48 days.

On the other hand, indefinite and non-alternating hunger strikes are also ongoing in Hewler on the 73rd day, in Strasbourg on the 47th day and in Wales on the 47th day.
