Kurdish Women's Initiative in London sends letters of solidarity to female prisoners in Turkey
The Kurdish Women's Initiative in London sent letters of solidarity to female prisoners in Turkish jails.
Members of the British Kurdish Women's Initiative gathered in front of Haringey Post Office in North London as part of the initiatives for 25 November, International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and sent letters of solidarity to the women held in Turkish prisons.
The letters sent to many imprisoned women, including HDP former co-chair Figen Yüksekdağ, Gültan Kışanak and Sebahat Tuncel, underlined that the struggle against fascism and the male-dominated system must be widened.
Besime Başar drew attention to the fact that thousands of women were imprisoned as a result of the Turkish state's policy against women.
Stating that they will not remain silent against arbitrary practices and violence in prisons, Başar noted that the resistance continues inside and outside prisons.
