14 Kurdish politicians, activists and journalists continue their resistance in Strasbourg, France on day 124 protesting the isolation imposed upon Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Ocalan.
The Kurds continue the resistance they started in Strasbourg, France on December 17, 2018 when they joined the hunger strikes launched by DTK Co-chair and HDP Hakkari MP Leyla Guven.
The protest continues at Avenue de Colmar 273, 67100 Strasbourg and the protesters continue with determination despite the serious health issues they have.
The activists stay in their beds, while the Kurdish people, allies, left-wing, democratic and socialist circles, politicians, artists and NGOs continue to visit them.
The protest Kurds have continued in front of the European Parliament for a month concluded one day early due to the Good Friday holiday in Alsace. Activists visited the hunger strikers yesterday.
SERHAT AGIRI: ACTIVISTS HAVE HIGH MORALE AND MOTIVATION
Kurdish politician Serhat Agiri greeted the activists in the name of the action committee and gave them information on the hunger strikers’ health.
Agiri said the hunger strike is on day 124 and added that the activists’ health is at a critical stage. Agiri said the hunger strikers experience serious physiological issues, insomnia and sensitivity to sounds and smells and said their morale and motivation is still high.
Agiri said at the current stage, the hunger strikers’ health fluctuates wildly even during the course of one day and added that the visits are important, but visitors should not insist to actually see the hunger strikers as they may be indisposed.
“BREAKING THE ISOLATION IS A RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALL”
Agiri said the protest’s motto is “Break the isolation, smash fascism, free Kurdistan” and said thousands of Kurdish individuals have put their bodies on the line to break the isolation. Agiri stressed the importance of the Kurdish people in Europe being on alert and becoming part of the process through various demonstrations and pointed out that breaking the isolation is a responsibility for all Kurdish people, stating that the responsibility shouldn’t be left to be shouldered by the hunger strikers and calling on all to take their share.
