Swedish Left Party expresses solidarity with HDP,calls for action

Worldwide solidarity with the HDP continues growing in the face of the ever-increasing repression of the party.

Swedish Left Party leader Jonas Sjöstedt condemned the Turkish government’s arrest campaign against the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP).

Denouncing the latest wave of attacks against the HDP, the party of the Kurdish and leftist movement, the Swedish politician remarked that the real reason behind the arrest of HDP politicians was the fact that the party adopted a very clear political stance against the ISIS that tried to capture Kobanê.

Sjöstedt called on the world public to protest against the attacks and arrests targeting the HDP.
