As u know Turkish State started operations against deathfaster and 
hungerstriker political prisoners in prisons. The name of the operation was 
declared to be "Reback to Life" but it must be named as "Reback to Death". 
Operations started in 20 prisons-18 of them have completed until now with at 
least 25 murders and 98 injured! (some of the prisoners burned themselves as 
they've declared before) 381 of the hungerstrikers were brought to hospitals 
by force; 293 of them are still there. 2 soldiers died during the 
operations. And in addition to all this tragedy another lie of the state is 
now clear; prisoners are being transferred to F-type death cells. Since now 
234 political prisoners from 6 different prisons were sent to Ankara-Sincan 
and 140 prisoners from Istanbul-Bayrampasa were sent to Edirne F-type 
prisons. The minister of (so-called!) justice announced that this operation 
was being planned for over one year! The number of state murders may be more 
than 25-about 40, says independent sources... The operation and resistance 
in 2 prisons is going on.

Last week the state declared censorship over the press! News about 
demonstrations, hungerstrikers etc. are all under state control. Yesterday 
after the state operations in prisons, lots of protestors "outside" were 
arrested; in Ankara 195, in Istanbul 100... A police car demolished with 
coctails, some occupations and battles with police, a fascist was killed in 
a grey-wolf(fascist) culture center. Also in France, Switzerland, Germany, 
Greece etc. leftists (solidarity commities with political prisoners) 
organized lots of demos, occupations etc.

think again... does a state have right to kill its prisoners?
