Despite the oppressions like exile, naked body search, cameras in cells, banning of letters and visitors, blocking vegan food Osman Evcan, didn’t took a step back and he has started his indefinite hunger strike starting from the 22 February, 2016. Because fear, submission and consenting, crushes the bodies under the heaviness of power of the state. State’s efforts to depersonalize political individuals with systematic pressures, should be smashed under Osman’s resistance. There is no middle way with the state who is establishing the policy of eliminating the prisoners on price-punishment order. Osman Evcan’s struggle is towards the authority. Only way to prove that he does not obey the authority, he does not accept the authority, is to setting forth his body. They can only destroy and divide political identities with murder, not with prison practices.
We summon everyone to share Osman Evcan’s struggle, who is fighting against state, surveillance and control, whether outside or inside.
Insurrection is essential for freedom to come into leaf.
Fire to the cells!
