The prison hunger strike resistance in Turkey continues into its 46th day

The People’s Democratic Party (HDP) assembly member Sevican Yaşar, who went on hunger strike in Turkey in 2019 to end the prison isolation conditions that were imposed on Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan, said: “A hunger strike, risking death, is undertaken to keep people alive”.

Sevican Yaşar, a participant in the previous 200-day hunger strike action led by Democratic Society Congress (DTK) co-chair Leyla Güven, spoke to Fırat News Agency (ANF) about the current hunger strike action.

“External support is needed to keep them alive. How does support from outside arise? You really shouldn’t be afraid anymore. Because what we want is peace. Nobody should terrorize peace”, she noted. “Even under normal conditions, it is difficult to get health care, whilst it is much more difficult for the prisoners. This action can have a huge impact”, she said.
