“Open rescue XXVIII (July 2016) & Support Osman Evcan
A cold night, rain and thundering far away. Totally wet sitting nearby the enclosure and waiting until the patrol comes.
It’s safe. We can go.
We know this place, so the rescue is done quickly.
We have took four chickens and going away. Four chickens whose world was changed in a few minutes.
Few words from the anonymous team member
For the first time in my life I can see how the animals live in the factory farms.
There is a very strictly scheduled mode. Light clock timer determining night and day, right now imitating night by darkness. I am shining with the flash-lamp over the hall where hundreds of chickens survive – sentenced to death alive. There’s no time to think about daily cruelty and torture. It’s time to take action.
From today, rescue is an indisseverable part of my life.
Support Osman Ecvan
Osman Ecvan born in 1959. From 1980 to 1989 he was jailed for 9 years for the first time. In 1992 he was sentenced to 30 years in prison with accusation of the leftist terrorist group membership and robbery. In 2003 he accepted anarchistic ideas and he became a vegan.
As unacceptable and recalcitrant prisoner is being moved to various Turkish prisons.
In 2011 he commenced a hunger strike of 42 days to get the vegan alimentation what finally happened. Every year he starts hunger strike as a protest against Eid al-Adha, the muslim Festival of Sacrifice.
In December 2015 he commenced a new unlimited hunger strike because the prison management confiscated his vegan food packages and refused to forward them. After 45 days they fell back and Osman finished his hunger strike.”
