Buldan: No intimidation but resistance

HDP Co-Chair Pervin Buldan delivered the opening speech at the Women's Assembly Meeting at the party's headquarters.

HDP Co-Chair Pervin Buldan said: "Last week marked the anniversary of the 2015-16 curfew, one of the dark periods of our history. In these massacres, 108 children and 107 women, out of a total of 2,500 people were massacred."

Buldan underlined: It should be known that as long as the determined struggle of women continues, there will be no benefit for the persecutor. We also know that very well; our path is long, our struggle is ambitious and great. In particular, oppression, violence, exploitation and massacres continue on women. As revealed in all the studies and reports published to date, violence against women has never ceased and the oppression has never ended during the AKP rule. Crimes and murders grew and spread. Neither preventive nor protective measures were taken against them."

Buldan also said: "I would like to state that these conflicting 'security' policies should be ended as soon as possible. I would like to mention that the AKP government, who boasted about putting the Solution Process in the refrigerator, should know that it is us women who suffered the most.

Here I would like to express once again that today, the biggest and most real problems of the country are the Kurdish issue and the isolation issue. Mr. Ocalan tried to solve the problem between 2011-2015 but his efforts were wasted."
