Turkish prisoners: Urgent Alert
Turkey, July 27, 1996
To: Comrade A. Olaechea
Spokesman for Committee Sol Peru

Dear Comrade:

The hunger strike prisoners from Baraympasa and Umraniye prisons have got word out to our Party and also other revolutionary organisations in the People's Front, reporting that the fascist regime is preparing a Fujimori style military assault intended to massacre the prisoners this very night.

As you would, no doubt, have in mind, the development of the struggle of the revolutionaries in the Turkish prisons is eliciting the same type of fascistic response from the rotten state authorities as that which occurred in your country, Peru, under the Alan Garcia and Fujimori regimes, when hundreds of prisoners of war of the PCP were vilely assassinated by those fascist hyenas.

We request from you and our comrades of Sol Peru, El Diario Internacional and the World Mobilisation Commission, as well as all sincere communists, revolutionaries and democrats of the world, to make efforts to ALERT INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC OPINION AS A MATTER OF URGENCY to the imminent nature of this dire threat against the unarmed prisoners and to undertake whatever steps may be able to take in demanding and obtaining that international observers maybe dispatched to Turkey without delay in order to contribute their efforts in staying the bloody hands of the fascist butchers of the Ankara regime.

We will keep this line of communication open and thank you for your internationalist efforts.

Martyrs of the Revolution Are Immortal!

Long Live the Resistance of Prisoners!

Long Live Proletarian Internationalism!

TKP/ML International Relations Bureau
