Fasting To Death (Global Documentary) | Real Stories
In a country where any criticism of the state is not tolerated, we meet the young Turkish people prepared to fast themselves to death to preserve their political integrity.
Fikret and Deniz are typical of the hunger strikers. Young, and from a poor background, they believe that communism will make Turkey a better place. Turkey has a long record for total intolerance of dissent, and it's this extreme repression that has led to such an extreme form of protest. Known as "Operation Return to Life", 10,000 military police stormed prisons across Turkey, aiming to relocate 2000 inmates to F type prisons. Hacer is now severely disfigured; her hair entirely burnt away. She was attacked with chemicals by Turkish security forces. 32 other inmates perished and 26 were killed by security forces. 6 others burnt themselves to death rather than be moved to a new jail.
