DHKC:OUR WAR OF RESISTANCE IN THE F-TYPE CONTINUES WITH OUR
EIGHTH DEATH FAST TEAM AND OUR HUNGER STRIKE
Despite the deep censor ship being practised against
our resistance to tyranny and isolation, we are
continuing our resistance in the isolation cells. The
revolutionary prisoners wrote epics of their
resistance in the years after the September 12, 1980
military coup, in the face of multi-faceted
We are certain that the epic of resistance currently
being written in the F-Type prison cells will reach
our people one way or another.
We are certain that the power of the resistance to all
wrongs will grow, with the determination to resist
tyranny that we have shown.
We are certain that tens of millions will put into
effect the ideals that we have defended against
tyranny at the price of our deaths. Up to now our will
has never been broken. Nor will it break in the
To show once again the willpower and determination of
our resistance, another group of our comrades started
the Death Fast on May 1, 2002, as the Eighth Death
Fast Team. On the same day all DHKP-C Trial prisoners
started a hunger strike, which will last until May 15.
Our Eighth Death Fast Team started the Death Fast on
May Day, the day when our people, in our country and
the world, go out into the streets to demand justice
On May Day, while red banners were being carried out
into the city squares, our comrades in prison
accompanied them by tying new red headbands around
Our people?s shouts of anger in the streets and
squares on May Day against the F-type cells and
against isolation even reached our cells. The voice of
tens of thousands shouting ?Long live our Death Fast
resistance? filled our cells.
This voice is the voice for whose sake we are
This voice is the voice we trust under all conditions.
This voice is the voice of confidence in us.
Up to now, we have not disappointed those who trust in
us and believe in us, and we never will.
Our fight is the same, whether in city squares or
One front in this fight is against isolation, another
is against the IMF, while yet another front opposes
the USA and Israel. The struggles of various sections
of our people, with their different demands, form
streams that unite into one river. We are a mighty
river of fighters and resisters. This river will flow
on to the liberation of our people. And sooner or
later it will flow into the sea!
This is our word to our people, from the cells in
which we resist; in each and every area we call on the
resistance to grow.
In total there are eight of our comrades in the Eighth
Death Fast Team. One in Edirne F-Type, one in Tekirdag
F-Type, two in Kandira F-Type, two in Sincan F-Type,
one in Kiriklar F-Type and one in Bakirkoy Prison for
Women and Children. On May Day our eight comrades tied
red ribbons round their foreheads as flags in our war
of resistance to tyranny, and they will bear them with
honour like our comrades who have been martyred.
The murderer Justice Minister Sami Turk can continue
to count our dead. Our resistance war against the
isolation in the F-Type prisons and the policies that
turn the entire country into an F-Type prison cannot
