With an event held in Ankara, the HDP has launched its election campaign under the banner of the Green Left Party.
The HDP (Peoples’ Democracy Party) has launched its election campaign under the banner of the Green Left Party (Yeşil Sol Parti).
The party shared its manifesto for the 14 May elections. "Together we will bring change" said HDP co-chair Mithat Sancar, adding: "We did not bow down to oppression and this became a problem for them. We walked this road without bowing and here we are. Yes, we learned to avoid their conspiracies and tricks. We inherited the accumulation of the tradition of struggle. We opened these roads, we walked all along and here we are. We, the Kurds, are here for a democratic solution to the problem of war, against the policies of refusal and denial. We are here for peace against hatred and enmity. We will change things together! We are here to defend life against death. We will change things together. We are here to establish local democracy, against centralized domination, for equal and free citizenship. We are here to pave the way for a democratic republic based on democracy. Together we will change things. We are here to grow and spread courage against fear."
The event ended with the launch of the election song, titled "Here we are".
