Nuriye And Semih Are Our Honour! Release Immediately Those You Have Detained!

Fifty people detained in Ankara, their demands are the demands of Nuriye and Semih…

What brought them there was being human and not worshipping fascism…

They bent and broke our arms as though they were folding up laundry…

For 137 days our bodies have been using hunger to seek justice…

Nuriye Semih, Nuriye Semih, Nuriye Semih…

At corners, on the squares and in the streets – their names will be everywhere…

The country has been ruled with AKP fascism for one year of the state of emergency (OHAL). The invoice for their crisis of rule has been sent to the people, the KHK has ensured that hundreds of thousands of workers have been fired in the space of a night as a result of being labelled as FETO supporters (note: FETO is the name used for the presumed terrorist organisation of Fethullah Gulen) and all their rights have been taken away from them.

However, two people, Nuriye and Semih, set up a barricade against this tyranny using their own bodies. Day by day their bodies have wasted away but this has been a call for struggle and resistance against fascism. With their hunger and their resistance in the prisons they continue to give us hope.

While outside thousands continue resistance, resisting like they do…

Yesterday morning AKP fascism again attacked as people were setting out for Ankara to read out a declaration. People who had gathered to go to Ankara were surrounded and harassed. Their cars were sealed, when they ended their announcement and were dispersing they were attacked and the authorities began to arrest dozens of people.

They were released the same day and continued their own programme within their means, went to Kocaeli and were again detained. Despite all obstacles, another group read out a declaration in Bursa in support of Nuriye and Semih and 10 people were detained.

Neither did the AKP’s tyranny end, nor did the demand for justice for Nuriye and Semih. As was announced, they went to Ankara and they gathered at 1 PM on Konur Street. The police blockaded the Human Rights Statue, and this time they blockaded the whole of Kizilay. No permission was given to read out a statement and they detained anyone they saw on the street. They attacked viciously. They broke the arm of a revolutionary while the journalist was taking pictures, another was throttled while being arrested. In total 50 people were detained, eight of them lawyers… Despite severe torture they continue to chant “Nuriye and Semih”…

Because Nuriye and Semih are the barricade before them as they go hungry…

WE are the ones who will give them strength…

WE, THAT IS, THE OPPRESSED, EXPLOITED, PEOPLES OF EVERY SQUARE METRE OF THE EARTH THAT THEY SEEK TO CORRUPT…

WE CALL ON ALL OUR FRIENDS AND COMRADES TO RESIST FASCISM AND SHOW SOLIDARITY …

WE CALL ON THEM TO BE THE VOICE OF NURIYE AND SEMIH AND OF THOSE WHO RESIST FOR THEIR DEMANDS AND HAVE THEIR ARMS BROKEN AND FACE IMPRISONMENT FOR DOING SO!

Nuriye And Semih Are Our Honour!

Release Immediately Those You Have Detained!
