Fourth day of families hunger strike

30 September 2010

Bağlar Women Council visited families on hunger strike

The hunger strike started by Diyar TUHAD-DER and the families of ill prisoners for the releasing of ill prisoners and against the increasing abuses of right, is continuing in its 4th day.

The families, who are supported by the visits of many citizens in the strike tent in Koşuyolu Park, mentioned their worry about the lives of their ill relatives in prisons.

Besides the support visit day long, the families were visited also by Bağlar Women Council last night. While resistance songs rose from the tent at the evening hours, Kurdish klams resounded in patches in the melody of pain and sorrow.
