Speaking on behalf of the Kurdish parties, Sedat Doğan said: "We have been here for 47 days to reclaim our rights and justice. If we look at our history well, we can actually say that this trustee policy has been going on for 100 years."

'The AKP must go'

Derya Yulcu, Women Secretary of Eğitim Sen said: "We have experienced this new political coup. But it's over now. The AKP is unable to carry out any policy inside and outside the country. Despite the attacks against all democratic rights, we are here today. We strive to exercise our right to a democratic peaceful action. We are trying to exercise our constitutional democratic right. The AKP must end and go. We are here today to make this happen and we are doing it struggling with democratic means and methods."
