Update on Nuriye Gülmen and Semih Özakça. The situation grows more serious.
We have done several articles on the situation of Nuriye Gulmen and Semih Ozakca in Turkey. We have joined the appeals for solidarity and have tried to keep people informed about this. Really the situation is very serious. You probably saw the videos of erdogan's thugs attacking people in Washington last week as well.
We received the following message from a comrade in Turkey today:
Nuriye and Semih have been arrested today on charges of a "possible" death fast and they were asked in the court whether they wanted to start mass protests similar to Gezi Park.. This is her just before they were arrested, she quoted Bobby Sands: "They have nothing in their whole imperial arsenal that can break the spirit of someone who doesn't want to be broken." and she called for resistance. They will be on hunger strike in the prison as well. Thanks for solidarity.
