Repression against political prisoners who are on hunger strike demanding an end to the isolation of Abdullah Öcalan, continues.

Indefinite and non-alternate hunger strikes demanding an end to the isolation regime imposed on Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan continue spreading in jails across Turkey and its Kurdish region. According to latest figures, the number of prisoners who are currently on indefinite and non-alternate hunger strikes to protest the isolation of Öcalan has risen to at least 156.

Prisoners Mehmet Sabri Yakut and Emin Seyrek, who are on an indefinite and non-alternate hunger strike in Trabzon E Type Closed Prison since January 5, have been placed in a cell without a companion to take care of them during their ongoing protest.
