On the 4th May activists in twelve towns and cities across Wales, Scotland, and England took part in a day of action in solidarity with Kurdish hunger strikers across the world. The campaign highlighted Turkish human rights abuses and discouraged people in the UK from holidaying in Turkey, arguing this indirectly supports human rights abuses in Turkey.
The day of action focused on Tui (formerly Thomson Holidays). It included protests and leafleting at TUI branches across the UK. In Bristol activists occupied a Tui branch, with two activists starting a 5-day hunger strike from within Tui.
