Şenyaşar family: "Staying silent is being a partner in the persecution"

The Şenyaşar family said: "Staying silent is being a partner in the persecution."

The Justice Vigil carried out by the Şenyaşar family has reached day 389. The vigil was launched on 9 March 2021 by Emine Şenyaşar, who lost her husband and two sons as a result of the attack carried out by AKP Deputy Ibrahim Halil Yıldız's bodyguards and relatives, in Suruç, province of Urfa, on 14 June 2018.

The vigil has been carried out since then in front of the Urfa Courthouse by Emine Şenyaşar and her son Ferit, who survived the attack.

The family is staging its vigil in an area called "Şenyaşar family justice corner". The family put up a banner reading: "They killed my two children and my husband in the hospital! Not a single person has been arrested! One of my sons has been imprisoned in a solitary cell for 4 years. I want my son to be released. Justice for the Şenyaşar Family, justice for all."

The family wrote on their social media account: “We want justice for a dignified and just life. To remain silent is to be a partner in the persecution."
