Women of Şırnak say all women should be in solidarity with Emine Şenyaşar

The women of Şırnak visited Emine Şenyaşar and called on the women of the world to be in solidarity with her.

Emine Şenyaşar lost her husband and two sons as a result of the attack of the body guards and relatives of AKP Urfa MP Ibrahim Halil Yıldız in 2018. Her son Ferit Şenyaşar, who survived the attack, continues to stand by his mother at the vigil in front of the Urfa Courthouse, demanding justice. Members of the Şırnak Peace Mothers Initiative, Free Women's Movement (TJA) activists and the Democratic Party of Rights (HDP) Şırnak district organizations visited the Şenyaşar family on the 184th day of their protests.

The Şenyaşar family greeted the visiting delegation with banners that read "Let justice come, end persecution" and "We want justice".

Listening to Emine Şenyaşar, who talked about what happened at Suruç State Hospital, where her husband and two sons were murdered, the women had emotional moments.

The delegation, which held a sit-in with Şenyaşar family, made a statement after the visit. Peace Mother Emine Ak said: “Mother Emine has been holding a sit-in here for more than 6 months demanding justice. We also demand justice. Justice must be provided for mother Emine Şenyaşar and all mothers. If justice comes, peace will come. All women of the world should protect Emine Şenyaşar. Emine Erdoğan (the president’s wife) is a woman and a mother. Doesn't she see Emine Şenyaşar?"

Peace Mother Nuriye Adış said: “A lot of injustice was done to mother Emine and it is still being done. They talk about 'Kurdish brothers', but where is the brotherhood?"

Peace Mother Hatice Betül said that women want peace and justice. “All women should be here today. Women and mothers should not leave Emine Şenyaşar alone. All women of the world should protect this mother."

Barış Mother Nebiha Akay said: "Mother Emine raised her children to live a happy life. She would never think that someone could kill them for his own benefits."
