Physical condition of four Iranian Kurdish refugees who is starting hunger strike since yesterday in front of the UN Refugees agency is deteriorating.
Shajan has a heart problem and she did not use her medication. Behzad has a history of stomach problems and since yesterday that started his hunger strike, he refuses to use his medicine too. Today they were in such a critical condition that a treatment team (ambulance) was also present in the area.
Since my last talk with Kamran , not only the authorities refuse to help them, but also UN has complain from them and they were threatened that would be deported by Police. Nevertheless they stay still and insist on their demands.
Least possible thing that we can do for them is to inform others of their situation.
Telephone number for contacting with refugees on hunger strike who gathers in front of UN in Ankara is: 00905064241077
Our wish is that human rights activists contact with UNHCR in Ankara and ask about the protesters condition.
