At this critical phase of the hunger strike action, ANF shares the messages sent to the public opinion by some of the hunger strikers.

The 14 Kurdish activists on hunger strike in Strasbourg to demand the end of the isolation of Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan, have entered their 68 day of fast.

The activists underlined the importance of the support of the people to achieve the end of isolation and force the institutions that could help this goal to be reached, like the Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT), to take action.

The hunger strikers are in Kurdistan, Turkey and Europe and ask everyone to do whatever in their hands to ensure the voice of the resistance is amplified.

The activists said that they have not put any health issue in the agenda in the 2 months of their fast. They are worried for the prisoners on hunger strike under torture conditions, for Leyla Güven who has been fasting for 107 and for Nasır Yağız who has been fasting for 94 days. They worry that anytime the news of someone fallen martyr in this resistance may come.

At this critical phase of the hunger strike action, ANF shares the messages sent to the public opinion by some of the hunger strikers.

Kardo Bokani, a political scientist from East Kurdistan and a member of the Foreign Relations Committee of the KNK, made his appeal to the public and parties in other parts of Kurdistan.

Kardo Bokani

“Over 300 Kurdistan politicians and revolutionaries have begun an action and our action is now at a critical stage. There is a possibility of a martyrdom at any moment. The Kurdish nation offers great support both in the country and abroad. Democratic friends and forces show solidarity. However, no solidarity or strong messages are coming from other Kurdistan forces and parties.

Our call is to these forces and parties to come here because this action aims at the freedom of Abdullah Öcalan. President Öcalan is a national leader. He struggled in Kurdistan under difficult conditions.

I have joined this hunger strike as a Kurd and because I see this as a national action. This is why I call on all Kurdish forces to reclaim this action and support it.”
