Italy, february 2003
AGAINST THE TORTURE OF ISOLATION
A symposium was realized in Olland from december 19 to december 21-'02
During the Symposium against Isolation, which was held in the Netherlands from 19-21 December 2002, and joined by 55 representatives from Turkey, the Basque Country, Palestine, Spain, Italy, Germany, Greece, Belgium, Lebanon, Marocco, Peru, France, Austria, Columbia, Portugal, Denmark and the Netherlands, the following decisions were taken:
December 19-22 were the days when in the year 2000, 28 prisoners in Turkey were killed in the struggle against isolation.
As almost everywhere else in the world, the political prisoners in Turkey should be totally isolated in order to break and destroy them.
This prisoners lead an exemplary fight for more than 2 years with a death fast, the longest hunger strike in the history against state terrorist isolation torture. This struggle has already cost over one hundred lives and still goes on today. Isolation is one of the most extreme forms of repression, like the disappearances most particulary in arap world and Latinamerika, torture and murder. Isolation is a mean to destroy thoughts, especially political thoughts. Isolation is a tortoure, tortoure is a crime against humanity and this form of torture was initiated by imperialist states, like the USA and the countries of EU. We all upon all peoples to fight all kind of isolation as part of today´s struggle against oppression and exploitation.
That´s why we want to call the days from 19-22nd December worldwide days of action against isolation imprisonment.
We agreed that isolation is damaging in human and medical way and is ilegitim.
We should put struggle against isolation into practice in his own framework.
FREEDOM FOR ALL POLITICAL AND WAR PRISONERS!
LONG LIVE INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY!
