Istanbul police attack demo for HDP municipalities

Turkish police continue with the brutal attacks against the people taking to the streets to protest the seizure of HDP municipalities.

Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) organised a demonstration in Kadıköy district of Istanbul to protest against the AKP regime’s seizure of HDP-run metropolitan municipalities of Amed (Diyarbakır), Mardin and Van and replacement of democratically elected mayors with state-appointed trustees.

Police attacked the crowd with tear gas and rubber bullets and detained many people.
