Guerrilla Baran: Don’t play into the hands of the government
Guerrilla Egîd Baran called out to his family: "Don’t play into the hands of the government; go and sit in front of the AKP City building for peace."
Egîd Baran is a guerrilla who went to the mountains of Kurdistan, rejecting the persecution of the Turkish state. His family, on the other hand, joined the sit-in in front of the HDP Amed City building. Egîd Baran called out to his family: "Don’t play into the hands of the government; go and sit in front of the AKP City building for peace."
Egîd Baran was born in Amed in 2001. Farqîn is the son of a non-patriotic family. The pressure and approach of his family was challenging him. He lived in Turkish cities such as Antalya and Manisa; he saw the approach towards Kurds more clearly. Because they were Kurds, they experienced the cruelty and discrimination. As the persecution worsened, his questioning increased. He couldn't accept that. He had an interest, curiosity and sympathy for the PKK since his childhood. Although he knew that his family was not patriotic, this interest, curiosity and sympathy continued.
He looked and stayed with friends sharing his views. He was learning about Commander Egid. Like him, he wanted to protest and rebel; he wanted to serve his people. He could no longer accept pressure and persecution. When he finally prepared himself, this honorable man joined the guerrilla.
Nobody is forced to join
Guerilla Egîd Baran said: “We could not ignore our conscience and honor and we joined knowingly / willingly. Mothers sitting in front of the HDP City building are told that ‘the PKK kidnapped your children by force’. We are here because we could no longer endure this persecution. We joined freely and voluntarily, our family knows this very well. Before I joined, I also wrote a letter to my family, talked to my family and said that I was joining the struggle. The families also know that this is the truth. The enemy has a special war policy. Nobody joins the guerrilla by force. In fact, it is the Turkish state that force people to do their military service. It is the Turkish state that makes war by force. We did not accept this."
Guerrilla Baran added: “The HDP is a political party conducting politics in Turkey. Our families should not fall into the hands of the AKP, MHP and fascist Erdogan’s tricks. They should not allow themselves to be used a toy for war. Instead, they should go and sit in front of the AKP City building and demand peace. My call to all the families there, especially my own family: Go back, don’t be fooled by Erdogan's tricks.”
