The hunger strike resistance launched to demand the end of the isolation of Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan, continues.

HDP member Nasır Yağız in Hewlêr has entered the 120th day of hunger strike.

His health situation is getting worse as he confirmed to ANF, adding that he is suffering from head, stomach and abdominal problems. He also said he has troubles sleeping and has problems in articulating words and seeing properly.

Nasır Yağız said that he could only sleep 2-3 hours a day, however he emphatically underlined that all the health problems did not diminish his morale and determination.

Artist Diyar Dersim, who visited Nasır Yağız, drew attention to the fact that the Turkish state imposed a policy of annihilation against the Kurdish people.

Isolation against Kurdish People’s Leader Öcalan, said Diyar Dersim, is a way to impose isolation on the entire Kurdish people and reduce it to slavery. “Turkey has turned northern Kurdistan into a prison. The hunger strike against the Turkish government and its policies will beat fascism.”
