Hunger strike in prisons enters day 41

Some 2500 prisoners are carrying out the hunger strike against isolation and violations of their rights for 41 days.

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 on November 27 to demand the end of isolation as well as the end of violations in prisons.

The hunger strike has reached day 41.

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

There are reports that in many prisons, raids were carried out from time to time and prisoners were beaten.
