HDP MP Leyla Güven's hunger strike against the isolation of Abdullah Öcalan continues since November 7.

DTK (Democratic Society Congress) co-chair and HDP (Peoples’ Democratic Party) Hakkari deputy Leyla Güven is held hostage in Diyarbakır E Type Prison since 31 January, when she was detained for protesting the Turkish state occupation of Afrin and for statements she made as co-chair of the DTK.

During a court hearing on November 7, she announced starting indefinite hunger strike calling for an end to the isolation regime imposed on Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan in Imralı Island Prison.

In addition to political prisoners in Turkey and Kurdistan jails, Kurds and their friends have launched solidarity hunger strikes, demonstrations and actions all around the world with the motto “Leyla Güven’s demand is our demand”.
