RSF statement of solidarity and support with Kurdish Hunger Strike PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 17 November 2012 23:40

The International Bureau of Republican Sinn Féin extends greetings and solidarity to the Kurdish people in these hard times. On September 12, 63 Kurdish political prisoners embarked a hunger strike until death. These 13 women and 50 men are held in seven Turkish prisons. They were soon followed on hunger strike by more than 600 political prisoners. In early November elected representatives of the PKK, Kurdistan Workers Party, the PAJK, Kurdistan Women’s Liberation Party, and the BDP, Peace and Democracy Party, went on hunger strike. BDP is the main opposition party in the Kurdish areas. The protest has now spread to 39 prisons.


September 12 was chosen since the day is the anniversary when the Turkish military seized power in a coup d’état in 1980. Since 2009 the Turkish state arrested more than 9.000 Kurdish politicians, parliamentarians, majors, lawyers, journalists, human rights activists and trade union members.


The International Bureau of Republican Sinn Féin fully supports the hunger strikers and their demands. The three main demands are a) an end to isolation imprisonment of the Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan, b) the recognition of the Kurdish language in schools, public sphere and in courts and c) the respect of the democratic rights of the Kurdish people.

Wednesday, 28 March 2012 11:40

In 1922, the international association for political prisoners Red Aid appointed the March 18th as the day in remembrance of political prisoners and those who suffer under state repression. Since then political prisoners all over the world are commemorated on this day. This year Republican Sinn Féin and comrades from other countries such as Turkey, the Philippines and Cuba organised a picket in the Austrian capital of Vienna.


On March 17, the Network for Political Prisoners organised a picket in the Centre of Vienna, Austria. About 40 people gathered in front of the anti-fascist monument demanding the release of political prisoners. Among the speakers were representatives of Republican Sinn Féin, the Cuban 5 and the Turkish Halk Cephesi (People’s Front).


Dieter Blumenfeld, RSF PRO in Continental Europe, outlined the current protest of the Republican Prisoners in Maghaberry and the cases of Martin Corey, Michael Campbell and Marian Price. He stressed the importance of international solidarity in the fight against British injustice, internment of Marian Price, Martin Corey and the injustice done to Republican Michael Campbell in Lithuania. He finished his speech by outlining the campaign for the release of Brendan Lillies. He said this campaign should give us hope that the struggle of the POW’s and our campaign for the Implementation of the 2010-Agreement can be successful.


Further protests throughout Vienna and other Austrian cities are in preparation.

Palästinensischer Hungerstreiker in israelischer Haft dem Tode nahe PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 17 February 2012 01:06

Medizinischer Bericht warnt israelisches Gericht, dass sich Khader Adnan nach 62 Tagen Hungerstreik gegen seine Inhaftierung ohne Verfahren in akuter Gefahr befindet.


Ein palästinensischer politischer Gefangener, der auch am 62. Tag seines Hungerstreiks an sein Bett in einem israelischen Krankenhaus gekettet ist, schwebt in akuter Lebensgefahr, so ein ärztlicher Bericht, der beim Obersten Gerichtshof in Israel eingereicht wurde. Der Bericht war ein vergeblicher Versuch, seine Freilassung zu erreichen.

 

Khader Adnan, 33, ein Bäcker aus einem Dorf in der Nähe von Jenin, wird von Israel ohne Anklage festgehalten, und soll für weitere vier Monate in sogenannter „Administrativhaft“ bleiben. Am 18. Dezember, dem Tag nach seiner Verhaftung, trat er in einen Hungerstreik.

 

Adnans Anwälte haben beim Obersten Gericht in Israel einen Antrag auf Haftentlassung gestellt, aber bis jetzt wurde kein Termin für eine Anhörung angesetzt. Die Situation sei von extremer Dringlichkeit, so Anwalt Mahmoud Kassandra gegenüber dem Guardian: „Das ist die letzte Chance. Die medizinischen Berichte sagen, er könne jeden Augenblick sterben. Wir hoffen, dass dieser Antrag Erfolg hat, aber ich bin nicht optimistisch.“

Palästinenser Khader Adnan seit 60 Tagen im Hungerstreik PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 15 February 2012 22:56

Tipperary/Wien/Gaza – Seit mittlerweile 60 Tagen ist der palästinensische politische Gefangene Khader Adnan im Hungerstreik. Er ist schwer krank und hat wohl nur noch wenige Tage zu leben. Die irische Partei Republican Sinn Féin unterstützt Adnan in seinem Kampf und fordert seine sofortige Freilassung.

 

Geraldine McNamara, nationale Sprecherin von Republican Sinn Féin verurteilte in einer Stellungnahme vom 15. Februar zum wiederholten Male die israelische Gefängnisaufsicht, welche sich weigert, im Falle des palästinensischen politischen Gefangenen Khader Adnan zu handeln. Khader befindet seit 60 Tagen im Ofer-Gefängnis im Hungerstreik.

 

Er ist mittlerweile ins Koma gefallen und hat nur noch kurze Zeit zu leben. Khader begann seinen Hungerstreik als Protest gegen seine Internierung ohne Gerichtsverfahren durch Israel. Er forderte, dass man gegen ihn Anklage erheben oder ihn freilassen solle. Er betonte: „Meine Würde ist wichtiger als Nahrung.“ Und er verteidigt diese Würde heldenhaft und ist willens, dafür zu sterben. Aktivisten aller Fraktionen im Westjordanland, Gaza und anderswo sind aus Solidarität ebenfalls in Hungerstreik getreten.
