“Me and a group of 15 politicians are taking over the 10-day hunger strike starting today, to support HDP Hakkari MP and DTK Co-chair Leyla Guven in her hunger strike of 31 days as of today. Leyla Guven’s demands are the demands of millions. The isolation must end at once and steps must be taken for democracy and peace. We are at a historic threshold. We are calling on all forces of democracy to raise democratic struggle against the crime against humanity at hand, and become Leyla’s each.”
