Prisoners relatives continue hunger strike

03 October 2010

Sixth day of hunger strikes for families

Members of Solidarity with Prisoners Relatives Association (TUHAD-DER) continue their hunger strike to protest ill treatments in Turkish prisons, on sixth day.

Due to heavy rain the protesters moved to Peace and Democracy Party's (BDP) local office from their tents in Kosuyolu Parc.

Kurdish musician Bulent Turan and Kayapinar deputy mayor Mahmut Dag paved a support visit to the protesters today.

The protesters read a letter written by Halil Gunes, terminally ill prisoner who is still kept in Diyarbakir D Type Prison. Gunes wrote about his health and offered his support to the protesters.

The protesters will end the hunger strike later today.
