The hunger strike in front of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France continues on day 4.
Activists came from Lahr, Germany to the EP in Strasbourg for the fourth day of the protest. Mahsum Korkmaz was commemorated in the protest.
Activist women will be protesting the silence of the EP, CPT and European institutions in front of the European Parliament. A youth group will be holding a silent protest in front of the EP later in the day.
ANDERSON: I SUPPORT YOU AND CONDEMN THE SILENCE
Irish MEP Martina Anderson from the European Parliament’s Women’s Committee and Italian feminist Eleonora Forenza visited the hunger strike and gave a message of solidarity.
Anderson said: “We understand you very well. We support you in your righteous struggle. I visited Leyla Guven 3 weeks ago, and I know why the hunger strikes are being held. We lost 11 of our comrades in hunger strikes. I went to visit Leyla Guven with this sentiment. And, I was in prison for 11 years, so I know how that feels like. I support your struggle and condemn the silence of European institutions.”
FORENZA: WE LEARNED FROM YOU
Italian feminist Eleonora Forenza also spoke and said: “We learned confederalism from you, and we feminists owe you for that. 2 weeks ago, we held a press conference with Dilek Ocalan. I condemn the silence of European institutions regarding the hunger strikes, starting with the EP.”
