Tens of thousands at Newroz in Amed: We will break the isolation
Masses are welcoming Newroz in Amed under the motto “We will definitely win and break the isolation”.
Celebration to mark the Kurdish New Year, Newroz, organised by the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) in Amed, is taking place this year under the motto “We will definitely win and break the isolation”.
This year’s Newroz is marked by the global Kurdish hunger strike action led by DTK Co-chair and HDP MP Leyla Güven who is on 134th day of indefinite hunger strike demanding an end to the isolation imposed on Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan.
Following a minute of silence, people filling the Newroz grounds saluted the hunger strikers and Zülküf Gezen, a political prisoner who ended his life in Tekirdağ Prison to protest the isolation of Öcalan.
