Statement Of Labour Party (Turkey) on Hamma Hammami’s security and Radia Nasravi’s hunger strike

Hamma Hammamis security must be ensured and Radia Nasravis hunger strike should be ended.

Bodyguards of Hamma Hammami were removed by the Tunisian government. Hammami is the spokesperson for the PeoplesFront in Tunisia and he has been receiving death threats for a long time. EMEP strongly condemns this decision by the Tunisian government. Tunisian government will be responsible for any attack that may target Hammami.

Hammami is the spokesperson for the PeoplesFront and the leader of Tunisian WorkersParty. The decision to remove the police officers protecting his life is a political decision. This decision is an attack on the democratic opposition because the leadership of the PeoplesFront and Hammami are under threat from collaborators of imperialism.

Chokri Belaid and Mohamed Brahmi, founders and former spokespersons for PeoplesFront, were slaughtered by fascist militants. Perpetrators of these slaughters have not been caught yet; rather governments have not wanted to catch them.

Hammami is the spokesperson for PeoplesFront and Tunisian WorkersParty. His party is the party of the Tunisian workers and labourers. The WorkersParty played a determining role in the democratic Tunisian revolution. An attack on The PeoplesFront and Hammami is an attack on the democratic Tunisian revolution.

Removal of police protecting Hammami -whom is targeted by all reactionaries -means portrayal of all gains of the Tunisian Revolution as a target for all counter-revolutionaries.

Democratic forces in Tunisa demand the securing of Hammamis life. Radia Nasravi, the partner of Hammami and a human rights lawyer, has been on hunger strike since 11 July, demanding provision of security for Hammami.

A human rights delegation met with Tunisian President on 1 August and the Interior Minister on 8 August to discuss protection for Hammami and an end to Nasravis hunger strike; the meetings did not achieve a result.

We, EMEP, strongly condemn the decision by the Tunisian government. Tunisian government will be responsible for any attack that may target Hammami. We call on all the revolutionary parties and organisations of the world to defend and support Hammami. All democratic forces must make attempts with the Tunisian government to protect Hammami.

Hamma Hammamis security must be ensured and Radia Nasravis hunger strike should be ended.
