Step through it
This is not a straight way, no
Not a sidewalk
It is the river of history.
“The end of history” they say
Theories of stupidity
This river will flow
As long as the world exists!”
Our client Erdoğan Çakır was transferred from the Koridallos Prison in Athens, Greece to the Villepinte Prison in France on 9th of September. He was given to the French imperialism by the courts of the Syriza government that wants to prove itself to the imperialists.
From the moment he was transferred to Villepinte Prison, Erdoğan Çakır started to receive a “special treatment” because of his thoughts. Those who declared the end of history think that they can stop the river of history!
Contrary to its façade of democracy, European Union systematically and psychologically tortures and isolates the revolutionaries in its prisons. The EU imperialists have been attempting to force the revolutionaries to give up their ideas with their isolations prisons and systematic tortures. Now they are trying these policies on Erdoğan Çakır.
When our client was brought into the prison, he encountered with the practice of naked body search that is against the human dignity. As a revolutionary prisoner, our client knew very well that the target of this policy was to crush the identity of the prisoner. Therefore, he chose the resistance as a legitimate right.
Faced with the resistance of our client against this systematic torture, The Villepinte Prison administration sent our client to an isolation cell. Right from the moment he was put in the isolation cell, Erdoğan Çakır started his hunger strike resistance. As of 5rd of January 2016, he was on a 40-days-long continuous hunger strike.
A short review of the history of “High Security Prisons” will help us understanding how European Union has been practicing isolation: The start of the 20th century was a period when the revolutionary struggle led by the working class had been developing throughout the entire American and European continent. The ruling classes attached a special importance in developing policies and methods to bow the revolutionary prisoners into submission.
The practice of cells and isolation found a wide area of application during the 2nd Imperialist War and thanks (!) to the Nazis.
The practices of isolation were developed in Germany.
“Experiments on the loss of sensual perceptions” that was initiated in 1972 formed the basis of the isolation policies in Germany.
The essence of the policy was this: Destroying the five senses of the prisoner under the conditions of isolation to disable her capacity of thinking and bowing her to submission!
The Stammheim, Mdabit, Celle and Lübeck Prisons are the notorious and torturous isolation prisons of Germany.
The high security prisons are introduced as a measure against the revolutionary struggle in Germany, Italy, Ireland, France and in many countries. The political essence of these prisons are the same: “Adapt or die”, “Either a change in your ideals or death”.
The imperialists of Europe and US know very well, however, that their isolation prisons, the brainwashing programs of the CIA are swimming in the rough waters in Turkey. Their famous “brainwashing programs” and methods of isolation became obsolete in the face of this rock-solid resistance.
The revolutionary movement of Turkey is experienced when it comes to the prisons. They managed to create strong traditions and provided examples of collective living. These are the strengths of the resistance in our country. Death fasts continued for 7 years, 25 seasons and 79 months against the isolation prisons. 122 revolutionaries were martyred and the state was forced to retreat. This resistance was unprecedented in terms of its willingness to make such great sacrifices.
Today our client Erdoğan Çakır is resisting thanks to the power of this tradition. The imperialists of Europe will be desperate and the willpower of the revolutionaries and Erdoğan Çakır will be victorious as we have seen with the former examples of Gülaferit Ünsal and Şadi Özbolat.
We support our client Erdoğan Çakır in his resistance. We are ready to do everything to prevent any harm to him. French imperialism should give up the practice of isolating the revolutionaries and systematically torturing them. We call The French Barr Association, Cedex Barr Assosication and the French public to support the honourable and rightfull resistance of Erdoğan Çakır.
Erdoğan Çakır is our honour!
Isolation is torture! Stop the isolation!
