5 DHKP-C PRISONERS MURDERED, 28 PRISONERS WOUNDED
The attack against the Ümraniye-prison is still continuing. The prison has now been blocked. We are concerned that the death tol will rise.
As you know the Turkish state tried to stage a massacre at Ümraniye-prison on December 13, 1995. But the revolutionary prisoners were able to barricade the prison and they prevented the massacre. The responsible for this massacre are the DYP-CHP coalition, the commander of the gendarmerie in Istanbul, the chief of police and the Anti-Terror Branch in Istanbul.
The fascist state, which persecutes our people in every field, attacks the people they have filled the prisons with at every opportunity. The ongoing massacre in Ümraniye-prison is the latest link in this chain.
We call upon all democratic movements and human rights organisations to protest the massacre in Ümraniye-prison, carried out by the fascist Turkish state. Put pressure on the authorities of the Republic of Turkey to bring an end to this attack on the prison!
STOP THE MASSACRE IN ÜMRANIYE-PRISON!
