“We will resist the indignity of the uniform”
DBP Co-chair Sebahat Tuncel: “The uniform practice is an attack on human dignity, rights and freedoms. We will never accept this indignity imposed upon us. We will increase the resistance against this mindset.”
Democratic Regions Party (Demokratik Bölgeler Partisi - DBP) Co-chair Sebahat Tuncel issued a message about the most recent Statutory Decree (KHK) from the Kandira Type F Prison No.1 where she is under arrest.
Tuncel pointed out that Turkey is being dragged off a cliff and stated the following in her message:
“The most recent Statutory Decree gives state protection to crimes against humanity, torture, labour exploitation and polarization. The uniform practice is an attack on human dignity, rights and freedoms. We will never accept this indignity imposed upon us. We will not only tear out these uniforms but we will also increase the resistance against this mindset.
The impunity being discussed encourages lynchings, lays the groundwork for a civil war, and destroys the conditions under which the society can coexist. This most recent Statutory Decree threatens the safety and freedom of all the peoples of Turkey, it threatens women’s safety and freedom. It is imperative that there be a louder voice against it. The government advertises providing permanent positions for subcontractor workers, but is using this as a tool to obfuscate the order of exploitation and hide the truth.”
