According to news report from Azarmeh Assocation of Women of Kurdistan (Women of Azarmehr) Mr. Ehsan Fatahiyan has started a hunger strike as of Sunday afternoon (November 8th 2009) in protest of his death sentence which is set to be carried out on Wednesday November 11th 2009. Mr. Fatahiyan is currently in Ward 2 of the central Sanandaj Prison.

Number of other Kurdish political and social prisoners including Mr. Adnan Hassanpour, Mr. Anward Hossein Pnahani, Mr. Arsalan Avliyayi, Mr. Habibollah Latifi and Mr. Lotfollah Lotfollahpour have announced that if Mr. Fatahiyan is executed they will all go on a hunger strike and will not end the strike until death.
Committee of the Families of Kurdish Political Prisoners has announced in a statement that it is extremely concerned that Mr. Fatahiyan’s execution will only be the beginning and will be closely followed by execution of other Kurdish activists who are currently awaiting execution.

This Committee has sent a warning to the Regime indicating that if these executions are carried out they will organize nationwide protests which will overthrow the Islamic Regime.
