Kurds and their friends in European countries are doing all they can to draw attention to the hunger strike resistance in Strasbourg and are well aware that the health of the 14 activists is badly shaken.

Doctor Fahrettin Gülşen has been monitoring hunger strikers in Strasbourg on a daily basis. He reports that they all suffered from heart, kidney and lungs problems.

The doctor said that these problems affecting the organs can lead to serious complications and warned about the critical situation the activists have found themselves in.

The hunger strike in Strasbourg reached its 131st day. The 14 Kurdish activists are fasting demanding the end of isolation against Abdullah Öcalan.

Kurds and their friends in European countries are doing all they can to draw attention to the hunger strike resistance in Strasbourg and are well aware that the health of the 14 activists is badly shaken.

Problems to vital organs can quickly deteriorate

The hunger strikers have been monitored since they began fasting. According to Fahrettin Gülşen, if the solution to the problem is not found in a short time, the damage to the activists’ organs can cause serious complications and even death.

The systemic and neurological problems identified earlier in the activists are now life-threatening, said Gülşen, adding that the heart, kidneys and lungs are the most delicate organs and that heart failure, renal failure or lung inflammation may occur at any stage.

The doctor stated that so far 3 activists were found to have serious problems, yet now he can identify the same problems in 7 of the activists. In particular, the activists showing the most serious symptoms are Yüksel Koç, Kerem Solhan and Gulistan Ike.

Other activists, said doctor Fahrettin Gülşen, are experiencing problems with sound, light and smell as well as heavy muscle pain and insomnia. Doctor Gülşen warned that these complications put the life of the activists at risk.

Call to institutions and public opinion

Once again, doctor Fahrettin Gülşen underlined that the health problems detected in the activists on hunger strike could lead to a fatal outcome and called on the public opinion and the institutions to act quickly.

The doctor reiterated that one of the most important factors for activists was morale. He said the hunger strikers are good as to morale, however, he added, the attitude of the European institutions towards the indefinite hunger strike continues to be negative and this has a bad impact on the morale of the activists.

Doctor Fahrettin Gülşen also called on health institutions in France and other countries, asking them to come and monitor the situation on the ground.
