Activists from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the Kurdistan Women’s Freedom Party (PAJK) in prisons in Turkey and Northern Kurdistan continue their second-phase hunger strike as part of the global campaign for the physical freedom of leader Abdullah Öcalan.

No information has been received about the detainees who decided not to make telephone calls or family conversations, in addition to boycotting the courts since April 4, while the protests of the detainees’ families in front of the prisons continue under the slogan “Speak for Freedom”

It is worth noting that the activists in Turkish prisons started the first phase with a hunger strike on November 27, 2023.
