'Human rights organizations must intervene, meet the demands of hunger strikers'

The Culture and Art Movement in Aleppo condemned the practices of Turkey for failing to comply with the hunger strikers' demands and called on human rights organizations to intervene and meet their demands to lift the isolation of the leader Abdullah Ocalan.

On its 153rd day, the parliamentarian Leyla Guven continues its campaign of hunger strike, together with thousands of detainees, in protest and calls for lifting the isolation imposed on Kurdish leader Abdullah Ocalan.

Jamil Horo Center for Culture and Art Culture in the Sheikh Maqsoud neighborhood of Aleppo issued today a statement to the public opinion, in the presence of dozens of members of the center, condemning the isolation.

The statement was read in two languages, Arabic by the center's member Farid Serour, and in Kurdish by the member Hevin Khani.

The statement was as follows:

"We condemn the practices of the Turkish fascist state not to comply with the demands of hunger strikers in the Turkish prisons led by parliamentarian Leyla Guven, who numbered more than seven thousand strugglers.

We appeal to all human rights organizations in the world to intervene and save the lives of hunger strikers and meet their demands, which are the most basic rights, and lift the isolation of the leader Abdullah Ocalan, who has been in Turkish prisons for twenty years."

Furthermore, the statement ended with slogans saluting the resistance of the strikers and demanding the freedom of the leader Abdullah Ocalan.
