SOLIDARITY WITH THE HDP

PEACE IN KURDISTAN

In Turkey the state wields the justice system like a sword. For decades the state has used the judiciary as a political tool, but we are now entering a new and vicious time.

On 7th June this year the Chief Prosecutor submitted his indictment to close down the HDP, the third largest political party in Turkey. A party that represents the democratic political will of over 6 million people.

Erdogan has been intent on revenge ever since, embarking on a systematic campaign of repression against the HDP that includes mass arrests of members and elected representatives, the lifting of immunity of deputies, the confiscation of municipalities and the ‘Kobane trial’, culminating in the request to the Constitutional Court in Ankara on June 7 to ban the party.
