Hunger strike in prisons enters day 36

The seventh group of prisoners is carrying out the hunger strike against isolation and violations of their rights on its 36th day.

Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan continues to be kept in total isolation in Imrali prison island. Political prisoners in Turkey and Kurdistan have launched an indefinite and alternate hunger strike to demand the end of isolation as well as the end of violations in prison.

The hunger strike has been taken over by the 7th group of prisoners and has entered its 36th day.

The authorities in prisons and the Ministry of Justice, far from meeting the demands of the prisoners, imposed on them punishments for their democratic action.
