More than 400 detainees at Dry Dock Prison have announced that they have joined the isolated 15 detainees and the rest of the hanger-strike detainees at Joe Prison.

In a statement on Sunday, August 18, 2019, the prisoners of conscience explained that they had a set of basic demands: to stop restrictions on the practice of religious rites inside the prison, especially with regard to Ashura ceremony, remove the glass barrier between prisoners and their families during the visit, stop raids on cells, harassment and theft as well as stopping the beatings and abuse of prisoners and the policy of solitary confinement.

They stressed that this step is the onset of the escalation, and if the prison administration does not respond to their demands, or attempt to deceive or intimidate them.  They will resort to take other steps, inspiring by the steadfastness, patience and pride of Ashura School, according to them.

Meanwhile, around 200 political prisoners in Joe Central Prison have expressed solidarity with their 15 isolated colleagues, who began a hunger strike on Thursday, August 15, 2019 in protest against the tight security measures, discrimination from the rest of the prisoners, and the harsh conditions they have been living for two years.
