Police prevented people from Mardin to join Democracy March

The AKP-MHP government continues to prevent and attack the March for Democracy launched by the HDP.

HDP members who set off to reach Amed from Mardin and its districts were blocked by the police. People left from Midyat, Derik, Nusaybin, Kızıltepe and other districts, but were stopped at the check-points on the Mardin-Amed road. Party members were prevented from leaving the city.

HDP Mardin Provincial Organization building was also blockaded by armoured vehicles and riot police since the morning.

Speaking at the party building, Provincial co-chair Salih Kuday said that they were prevented from leaving the city in a nasty way, and stressed that the HDP march would continue.
