HDP co-chair and candidate Pervin Buldan, met women in the Seyhan district of Adana as part of her election campaign.
Buldan was accompanied by the constituency’s candidates. The HDP group was met with slogans and chants by the many women joining the event.
The meeting began with a minute of silence in memory of those who lost their lives in the struggle for democracy and freedom. Women chanted slogans like ‘Our candidate is Demirtaş’, ‘Change with you’, ‘Biji Serok Apo’, ‘We are the HDP’.
HDP candidate Tülay Hatimoğulları was the first to speak. She greeted women and said that the 24 June elections are an imposed but historical contest.
Hatimoğulları added that “the AKP government and President Erdogan would possibly not have called for early elections if they had imagined it would prove so hard”.
Pointing out that the AKP government’s 16-year rule was hard especially on women, Hatimoğulları added: “In Turkey people have been forced to pay a heavy price and especially Kurds. We will make them fall on 24 June”.
