Colleagues of the late pro-Kurdish DEM Party councillor Ahmet Gün who was killed on Monday in an ambush reportedly by village guards in Turkey’s Şırnak province, have called the incident a ‘political attack’.
A rotational hunger strike by Kurdish political prisoners in Turkey demanding freedom for PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan and a solution to the Kurdish issue, has entered its 17th day. A connected justice vigil is held in Diyarbakir in solidarity with those in prison.
European Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT) must be “more active” in halting the extreme isolation imposed on PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan, says the committee’s former president, Mauro Palma. Meanwhile, Latin American feminists stage book readings of Öcalan’s writings on a ‘third gender revolution’.
A Kurdish journalist facing charges of terrorist propaganda in Turkey for stories published with Mezopotamya Agency claims they had journalistic value and that the public had a right to the information.
