Over 700 political prisoners in Turkey are facing death

CALL FOR AN URGENT SOLUTION!
http://thecaravan.org/files/caravan/CALL%20FOR%20AN%20URGENT%20SOLUTION!...

We, the undersigning faith communities and democratic migrants organizations with Turkish, Kurdish, Arabic and other different ethnical-cultural backgrounds, want to share our deepest concern with the international public regarding the unlimited hunger strike that is started by the prisoners in Turkey- the hunger strike has now reached its 55th day.

The hunger strike started by Kurdish prisoners with the demands of education and the right of self- defense in their mother tongue, and the abolishing of the isolation imprisonment against Abdullah Ocalan. The AKP government has used severe destructive measures and the death of many prisoners is coming closer. It must be clear that this will pave the path for even bigger problems and that the AKP government and minister president Recep Tayip Erdogan will be held accountable for the death of the prisoners. In about 68 prisons, over 700 prisoners are facing death. The government makes it look as if it will make a counter move against it rather than solving the issue through a constructive dialogue.

As a joint platform of democratic mass organizations in Europa, we appeal to the international democratic public to pursue an urgent solution that will favor the demands of the prisoners.
At the same time we call upon the migrants from the different nations living in Europe, to be in solidarity in their local branches and to be faithful in their historical responsibility.

Der Kampf von Flüchtlingen braucht Geld!

Die Karawane ist maßgeblich auf Spenden angewiesen. Unsere Organisation besteht überwiegend aus Flüchtlingen, die (wenn überhaupt) nur über sehr geringe finanzielle Mittel verfügen. Aus diesem Grunde haben wir 2008 den „Förderverein Karawane e. V.” gegründet. Unser Verein ist als gemeinnützig anerkannt und kann deswegen auf Wunsch Spendenquittungen ausstellen, so dass sie steuerlich absetzbar sind. Wenn bei der Überweisung die Adresse mit angegeben wird, verschicken wir die Spendenbescheinigung automatisch spätestens am Anfang des Folgejahres.
