404 citizens from various backgrounds issued a statement to support the so called "101 Grey-Haired Elders" declaration.
The 101 had said: "A wholesale threat can only be extinguished by a wholesale resistance," adding that "the solution lies in the establishment of democracy alliance of all opposition forces without delay, while maintaining their own entity and identity, but by joining around fundamental democratic principles."
Support for the initiative is growing as the need for a strong alliance is underlined from various sectors of society.
The 404 signatories said: "In a country which has become isolated, lost its prestige and drifted away from an understanding of democracy and rule of law; In a country where freedoms are restricted, attempts to seek rights are suppressed, feminicides are committed everyday, there is a will to make women's rights null and void and the media has become univocal; In an environment where polarization, hatred and grudge are stirred up; We see that our relatives and friends, every attempt to seek rights and dissident voices are treated as if they were criminals; we see that they are subjected to police violence and unjust convictions; we see that our country, people and we, ourselves, are under threat."
The 404 added: "In order to change this, we want the government to hear the voices and demonstrations of citizens and the opposition to take action to form the widest possible democracy platform."
