Solidarity with the political prisoners in Turkey! Benefit voku

Monday February 1st 2016, Solidarity with the political prisoners in Turkey! Benefit voku. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

More than 10.000 political prisoners are behind bars in Turkey and Northern Kurdistan. Most of them are PKK prisoners. The others are those who are claimed to be related with revolutionary parties like MLKP, TKP/ML, DHKP/C and MKP. A tiny minority is accused with commitment to other organisations.

Daily misery in Turkish prisons

The fact that all the torture and murder related cases filed against prison administrations end in favour of the same. Arbitrary prohibition of visiters, letters and publications. Isolation terror, physical violence, frequent violation of various rights, Violation through many different methods against the right to use other languages than Turkish in speaking communication and writing. Prevention of watching the legal progressive TV channels. Arbitrary implementations to hinder medical treatment. Hindering the prisoners to send their scientific and literary productions to publishers. Bad conditions of heating, nutrition. Expensiveness of the vital needs which are only allowed to be bought from the prison canteens. The transport difficulties of families to visit their relatives in prison. Most of the prisoners are put in prisons in the cities away from their family houses.

*The solidarity committees, active in Europa (and in the Netherlands!) have the aim to :
-Raising the solidarity with the political prisoners in Turkey and Northern Kurdistan, to be their voice.
-Providing financial support
-Standing in solidarity with their families
-Struggling against all kinds of treatment, not complying with human dignity.

Developing the united struggle with all democratic solidarity organisations in order to stand shoulder to shoulder with revolutionary and patriotic prisoners in different countries of the world, to convey their outcry and calls to the masses and to build up a broad solidarity in  practice.
The Voice of the Polical Prisoners in Turkey publishes the bulletin “Free Dreams Post”. The bulletin includes letters, news, poems and articles sent from prisons.
