Demo for usurped HDP municipalities in Vienna

Protests against the seizure of HDP municipalities continue across Europe.

Democratic Forces Union organised a demonstration in Austrian capital city Vienna in protest at the AKP-MHP regime’s seizure of HDP-run municipalities in Amed, Mardin and Van by removing the elected mayors and appointing trustees in their place.

Demonstrators formed a long human chain in front of Vienna City Council across the National Parliament building to express their solidarity with the HDP and the Kurdish people.

Greens Party MP Alev Korun also joined the demonstration and called for sensitivity and solidarity from the Austrian government and civil society organizations.

Protesting the silence of EU member states, Korun said; “Stop your dirty relations and policies with the Erdoğan government.”

Demonstrators chanted “Murderer Erdoğan”, “HDP is honor, reclaim your honor” and “Long live women’s solidarity”.
