The 11th national conference of the Socialist Alliance expresses its solidarity with the Peoples Democratic Party (HDP) in Turkey especially in the wake of the atrocity that was the bombing of the HDP election rally in the city of Diyarbakir on June 5. Earlier HDP campaigners have been fired upon and bombed in more than 50 violent attacks over the course of just a month. Stop the repression! Power to the people!
The Socialist Alliance Conference expresses its congratulations to the pro-Kurdish and leftist party HDP of Turkey on their success in gaining 12.6% and around 80 seats in the recent Turkish elections.
We support the struggle of the HDP and the Kurdish and progressive forces in Turkey for human rights and social development in that country.
