EH Bildu expresses solidarity with HDP

EH Bildu of the Basque Country expressed solidarity with the HDP and called for an end to the attacks against the elected representatives of the people.

Pro-independence left coalition of the Basque Country, EH Bildu, released a statement denouncing the usurpation of HDP municipalities in Diyarbakır, Mardin and Van and the arrests against hundreds of members of the party in a latest crackdown by the government.

The statement said; “We must note the overwhelming support for the dismissed Co-mayors elected with 63% of the vote in Diyarbakır, 56% of the vote in Mardin and 53% of the vote in Van.”

EH Bildu strongly denounced “this usurpation, the arrest of democratically elected representatives and their replacement by unelected administrators”, calling it “absolutely antidemocratic”.

The left coalition once again declared its support for HDP and called on the Turkish government and the parties supporting it to immediately stop these attacks and to seek a peaceful negotiated solution that will respect the will of the people.
