Our people, who said “guns should be silenced”, who organized demonstrations and hit the streets to make this demand real, were viciously murdered.
First of all, we would like to offer our sincere condolences to the families of the 97 lives we lost and to our people, and hope that hundreds of people who got wounded will get better soon.
It is obvious that these attacks are not different from the massacre in Suruc, the bombings in Adana, Mersin and Diyarbakir.
These attacks are the results of the language of hatred that the political power used against the ones who worked to bring peace.
These attacks target the ones who struggle for equality, freedom and justice, and remain detemined about peace and democracy.
These attacks are against the spreading of the language of peace and its realization.
In this country, a mafia leader who is fed by the government and some state institutions can organize a demonstration in Rize and announce his commitment and support to the “Palace”. He will state that “they will bleed in streams” and a day after people who demand peace in Ankara will be murdered by bombs.
Unless the political power cut their ties with these mafia organizations within the country, and global gangs like ISIS and Ahrar es Sam, we will experience again these kinds of massacres.
We are sure that all the people who didn’t lose their inner conscience and honnor feel the pain in their hearts. With them, and thanks to the solidarity of the supporter of peace, we will overcome these difficult days.
We will never let these massacres buried. The people who instigated and planned these massacres, the political responsibles and real perpetrators of these actions will be bring to justice.
