Demirtaş: Next week will be critical for hunger strikers

01 November 2012 – ANF – BDP co-chair said PM does not want the west to know and act about protest in Turkish jails. In an interview to Dicle News Agency (DİHA), Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) co-chair Selahattin Demirtaş said that their party is preparing radical actions concerning the ongoing hunger strike by Kurdish political prisoners in Turkey jails.

BDP co-chair underlined that they didn’t expect the government to take a concrete step since the very beginning of the hunger strike and added that; “We therefore need to step up demonstrations and actions as the fast will enter a highly critical stage next week. We BDP deputies are currently discussing alternative ways to follow and we will take radical steps to prevent any death.”
