She searched her son in Koşuyolu Park for 23 years, now she is there for her grandson


DİYARBAKIR - Remziye Bayram who has been trying to be heard in Koşuyolu Park for 23 years for her son who was forced into dissappearance under custody, now tried to be the voice of her grandson who is on hunger strike. 

What was lost was not an object, it was a piece of them. Remziye Bayram, mother of Şirin Bayram who was forced into dissappearance while under custody in 1996, in Diyarbakır, Kulp; still lives with the questions in her head despite the passing years. Mother Bayram takes a picture of her son every saturday and goes to Diyarbakır Humans' Rights Association (İHD). Remziye Bayram has been doing the sit in in the association building with the same hope like it is the first day, after the park was closed by the security forces. 
Mother Bayram who has been struggling to find her son  for years, is now in the park for her grandson who is on hunger strike. Her grandson Azad Bayram who was taken under custody 8 months ago in Batman, was arrested by the court he's been referred to. Remziye Tosunu goes to the park everyday with her daughter for her son, and her daughter's son.
Remziye Bayram who stated that' I'll go to the park to make it to the sit in after this', emphasizes that they will be there despite all the violence and the threats of the police, says: "We have nothing to fear now. We have lost our children, we are losing our grand children..'
Mother Bayram who draws attention to the fact that the park was closed down to stop them from doing the sit in, says she is surprized by the number of the police that show up to prevent the mothers from doing a demonstration every time and says: "It is beyond our understanding that they station that many police for a few mothers."
Mother Bayram who stated that she passed 23 years of her 62 year life with struggle, says they have no other priority. Mother Bayram said: "We have nothing else in our life other than our struggle. Azad is resisting in the prison, her mother and I are resisting out here. Mother Bayram who stated that she feels the reason for the hunger strikes in her bones, asks: "I see law enforcement officers every where the minute I leave my house. Isn't this isolation? They are arresting the Kurdish sons and daughters, they force them into dissappearance. The park we hold our sit in is closed, isn't this isolation?"
