HDP co-chair Sezai Temelli is in Strasbourg for a series of meetings with the European institutions in Strasbourg. Last night he attended a public meeting at the Democratic Kurdish Community Center.
Temelli drew attention to the contacts of the HDP in South Kurdistan, adding that the various political parties they talked to have said it was necessary to initiate a democratic solution to end the war.
For the end of the war, Kurdish parties should come together and establish a National Congress urgently, Temelli said.
Noting that the Kurdish question is the main reason of the present war Temelli said it is also intimately connected with the problem of democracy in Turkey.
Temelli said that the Kurdish people have been fighting during the fascist ruling times and added that women, laborers, members of different faiths, and those who favor democracy have to join the fight as they all suffer from the violence of fascism..
