Seventh group takes over the hunger strike in Hewler

Hunger strikes demanding an end to the isolation regime on Öcalan continue growing.

DTK (Democratic Society Congress) Co-chair and HDP (Peoples’ Democratic Party) MP for Hakkari, Leyla Güven, is on the 26th day of her hunger strike against the aggravated isolation imposed on Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan. Solidarity with Güven is growing under the motto “Leyla Güven’s demand is our demand”.

The hunger strike launched in Hewler (Erbil) under the lead of the HDP South Kurdistan Representation Office has reached its 13th day.

As a seventh group has taken over the hunger strike on Monday, activists stressed that they will continue their action until the isolation of Öcalan ends.

Solidarity visits to the hunger strikers are also continuing. A delegation made up of Kurdistan Laborers’ Party has visited the activists today and called for solidarity with the action.
