Catalan, German and Argentine groups in solidarity with the HDP
Representatives of the peoples from different countries have expressed their condemnation against the genocide operations targeting the HDP.
The civil society organisation, Assemblea Nacional Catalana (Catalan National Assembly), which has tens of thousands of members, said that the political genocide operations against the HDP cannot be accepted.
the association reminded in its Twitter account that the Turkish government ordered the arrest of 82 HDP members and added "We definitely condemn the new political persecution against Kurdistan."
The Marxist Leninist Party of Germany (MLPD) said in a statement titled "Reason for arrest: Solidarity with Kobanê".
The statement reminded that the reason for the new political operation was the solidarity shown with the city of Kobanê and its historica resistance against ISIS fascism in 2014.
Reminding that the MLPD, as a member of the International Coordination of Revolutionary Parties and Organizations (ICOR), also participated in the activities in solidarity with Kobanê, the statement said: "The MLPD decisively protests against the criminalization of solidarity with Kobanê and expresses its solidarity with those arrested. We demand their immediate release.”
Senda Guevarista-Mayo 2019, one of Argentina’s revolutionary movements, said that the solidarity demonstrations with Kobanê, which were cited as the reason for the arrests, were held against the silence of the Turkish state on the massacres carried out by ISIS mercenaries. The statement, which pointed out that the genocide campaign of the Turkish state went in parallel with the silence of the Western states, especially the European Union and international capitalism, also touched on the attacks against the Autonomous Administration of Northern and Eastern Syria, and underlined that this repression cannot be ignored.
The statement called for solidarity with the HDP and urged the Turkish state to release all political prisoners immediately and the international community to take a firm stance.
