'ISOLATION IS INTENDED TO BE IMPLEMENTED MENTALLY'
 
Fatma Demir from the OHD Commission, who visited the DEM Party's ongoing action in Konak district, said: “We support the Women's Justice Watch initiated under the leadership of mothers. We would like to express that such an action is very meaningful, especially in a period where isolation policies are gradually deepening. When we look at the current period, we see that isolation has spread not only to prisons or closed areas but to all areas of our lives. Therefore, it is necessary to see that isolation is intended to be implemented not only in closed areas or as a physical phenomenon, but also mentally. This resistance, which was started in these opposing prisons and continued by the relatives of the prisoners, is important. We would like to state that we are with them in this struggle, we are with the mothers."
 
Many people also visited the Justice Watch that continues in the DEM Party Menemen district organization. Speaking here, the relative of the prisoner, Zeyi Candemir, said: “First of all, I would like to send greetings to Abdullah Ocalan and the prisoners in prisons. Prisoners in prisons are protesting for their human dignity, especially isolation policies. We want every honorable Kurd to voice their voices in prisons. We mothers do not want funerals to be held in prisons. That's why we demand that this issue be resolved immediately.”
 
During the enthusiastic demonstration, slogans such as "Biji berxwedana zindanan" and "Jin Jîyan Azadî" were frequently chanted, and the message "We are here for Mr. Abdullah Ocalan" was given.
