To Release All Kurdish Children in Turkey's Jails!

17 Kurdish children ended a hunger strike in a Mersin jail in Turkey but remained imprisoned.

There are now reports of Kurdish children having been sexually assaulted in Ponzanti Prison, Adana, Turkey!

There are 2,221 children, mostly Kurds, in Turkish jails according to the National Judicial Network in Turkey. 

Children should be at school and not be forced to go on hunger strike because they have been put in prison without trial or have to endure rape and sexual harrasment in jail.
