Reaction from Kurdish institutions
Athens Kurdistan Cultural Center and Lavrio Camp Committee condemned the murder of Evin Ekrem Ali in a statement.
The statement added: "Lavrio Camp has been recognized by the whole Greek people for years because of its life shaped by a democratic, ecological and women's libertarian paradigm. It is unacceptable to reflect the murder, as some media outlets are doing, blaming the type of paradigm established in the camp. There are other political purposes behind this news. We will continue to fight murders of women in Lavrio and everywhere."
