Default Hunger strike in Turkey

There are still prisoners on hunger strike in Turkey, still prisoners who are dieing, out of protest. Because the government wants to put the prisoners in smaller, isolated cells. The prisoners are afraid to be abused, mistreated and tortured by the CO's. People seem to have forgetten all about them.
These treats can't be fantasies from the prisoners, if they are willing to die for it, just to try to provide it.

My heart goes out to all those inmates in Turkey as well as their family members who I'm sure are worried. DOC or whatever they are called in other contries needs to remember that an inmate is someones son/daughter, husband/wife, father/mother, brother/sister.
I think all co's should be mandated to take a class on empathy!
