Youth Movement Member of “November 7” on Hunger Strike for the Release of Political Prisoners
It is already been six days that, Ilia Tsurtsumia, a member of the group “November 7” has been starving himself in front of the Khobi culture house. This has all been an effort in demanding the release of political prisoners.
In 2007, Tsurtsumia himself was a political prisoner after being arrested for resisting the head of police. It now been eight months since his release and now he wants to change the lack of attention that political prisoners are given in Georgia.
“I decided to initiate a hunger strike because as it currently stands in Georgia, there are no pre-determined conditions for the release of political prisoners. There have been many attempts but unfortunately no results. A lack of results will continue until the whole Georgia demands their release.” said Tsurtsumia. He plans to starve until his health can no longer bear it.
