Bloody Operation against Deathfasts!

The deathfasts and hunger strikes  that were started by nearly 1500
political prisoners in 48 prisons are facing  bloody interferences of
the Turkish state on the 61st day. The operations that were being
carried out against 20 prisons since 4:30 am 19.12.2000 faced a strong
resistence. According to the latest anouncement of the minister of
justice, 15 prisoners most of whom burned theirselves and 2 military
troopers died. Press and other media is under a govermental sencore,
arrestments and physical pressures are going on over leftist parties
and NGOs. Any kind of demonstrative  actions are put down  by violent
arrestments of police. In the prisons in which the operations ended,
the political prisoners are transferred to the F-Type (cell type)
prison in Sincan. Therefore the Turkish state has broken its promise
that "the transfers to F-Type prisons were delayed". The prisoners
that are going on the deathfast are forced to recieve medical "help".
