(en) Greece, liberta salonica: Solidarity with Turkish hunger strikers | March to the Turkish Consulate [machine translation]

Date Thu, 28 May 2020 09:35:29 +0300


The state of emergency in Turkey after the failed coup in July 2016 is in full force. The Erdogan regime is trying to purge its internal enemies. But apart from his rivals in the ruling camp, he is attacking the social base, the people of Turkey and their organizations. However, these attacks are not an unprecedented situation for the resistance movement in Turkey. Although Erdogan wants to overcome Kemalism, he is following his worst traditions of dealing with the left in the country. Part of this attack is the case of the revolutionary band Grup Yorum and the "People's Advocates". ---- In recent months, three militants have died after a grueling hunger strike. Help Bölek, singer of Grup Yorum, fell after 288 days of hunger strike. It was followed by fighter Mustafa Koçak after a 297-day hunger strike, with Grup Yorum bassist rahimbrahim Gökçek being the last to die in 323 days. All of them were imprisoned on false charges and tortured several times, while the Turkish state tried to force them to eat, a practice that is also considered torture under international conventions. But none of them bowed. Until the last moment, they remained unwaveringly committed to the cause of the liberation of the working class and the people of Turkey, not hesitating for a moment to give their lives for this purpose. The Turkish state's stance against them is so great that it attacked police and paramilitary bastards at their comrades' funerals, and went so far as to seize the body of rahimbrahim Gökçek, so as not to turn his funeral into a demonstration against the regime. Now all three are symbols of resistance that with their sacrifice inspire the struggling peoples all over the world.

The hunger strike continues until death. Lawyers Ebru Timtik and Aytaç Ünsal, as well as political prisoners Didem Akman and Özgür Karakaya, are now over 100 days old. Their requests are as follows:

-To accept the requests of Grup Yorum immediately.

- Let the lawyers of the People be released.

- To remove the regime of injustice in political persecution.

-To annul all unjust sentences given as a result of retaliatory trials and remove obstacles to the right to a fair trial, such as covert witnesses.

We wholeheartedly stand in solidarity with the difficult struggle of our comrades in Turkey. Internationalist solidarity is stepping up their struggle and could be a stumbling block to Erdogan's plans for the complete annihilation of the movements in Turkey. Our struggle knows no borders. It is common. When one of us is hit, wherever he is, we are all hit.
