Critically ill prisoners of Turkey protest

DATE: 30 October 2021

 COMMITTEE: Executive Committee

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF EVENT:

Conditions in Turkish prisons are deeply worrying. Overcrowded and unhygienic conditions, lack of proper access to healthcare is reported by many inmates. Prisons are like a death penalty for sick or terminally sick inmates and 65+ persons are in prison. We organised a protest opposite the Turkish Embassy in London, calling for the Turkish government to release all critically ill inmates in a Turkish prison for the duration of their medical care.
