We believe that government pressure on their opponents will increase as we get closer to the elections. And, so long as the international community remains silent, this repression will become even more brutal.
When HDP deputies and members protested this police provocation in front of the HDP headquarters (on May 5), the police attacked them harshly. (…) This organized attack is part of a long campaign aimed at silencing and completely eliminating the HDP.

It is obvious that the AKP-MHP alliance changes the election law according to its own needs. These changes will not bring a democratic and fair election. Rather, they will block the representation of various social dynamics in parliament and further undermine the will of voters as reflected in the ballot boxes.

Statement by HDP’s Co-spokespersons for Foreign Affairs Feleknas Uca & Hişyar Özsoy
We condemn in the strongest terms the murder of Merwan Bedel, Co-chair of the Autonomous Governing Council in Shingal (Sinjar)
The Peoples’ Democratic Party has presented a new roadmap. The document contains concrete proposals for conflict resolution and thus sustainably promote the democratic development of the country.
Statement by our Foreign Affairs Co-spokespersons Feleknas Uca and Hişyar Özsoy: “We call on the international community to increase its solidarity with the HDP and the Kurds, as the attacks on us are very much on the rise and becoming even deadlier.”
The Rojava Revolution is an important historical experience, whose achievements need to be preserved and consolidated as an inspiration for the peoples of the Middle East.
In addition to all other legal and political pressures we have, such as never-ending waves of arrests and party closure and Kobane cases, we now also have to struggle against such cowardly physical attacks.
Gergerlioğlu: “…my release is a harbinger of the freedom of our other friends. It is a harbinger of an end to the attacks targeting our party. May the people smile, I smile deep inside, my heart smiles.”
It is clear that the AKP-MHP coalition is primarily responsible for this severe attack. The groups attacking our offices have always been encouraged by the government’s incitement of hatred and racism against the HDP.
We invite all parties to take responsibility to guarantee all democratic rights of the people of Shingal, first and foremost their right to self-defense.
