Ishtar Assembly Member Nuran Sezgin read the press statement and said, “Hunger strikes are at an extremely critical stage. For days, mothers have been fighting for their children. As people living in Maxmur, we state that we support the mothers’ resistance. Everybody everywhere should support their resistance and speak up against the isolation.”
