ŞIRNAK - DTK co-chair and HDP MP Leyla Güven came together with family members of those killed by state forces in Cizre.

Democratic Society Congress (DTK) Co-Chair and Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) Leyla Güven met today with family members of the victims of the Cizre massacres of 2015-2016. The meeting took place in the HDP district office. Among the participants were the deputy Saliha Aydeniz and various co-mayors.
 
Cizre has made history
 
Güven explained that the resistance of Cizre has gone down in history. She recalled the co-chairs of the Cizre People’s Council, Mehmet Tunç and Asya Yüksel, who were murdered by the Turkish forces during the massacre, and said: "We will bring the perpetrators to light. It will not stay in the dark."
 
A Kurdish alliance will bring success
 
Regarding the appointment of the trustees to HDP-run metropolitan municipalities of Amed (Diyarbakır), Mardin and Van, Güven said: "The trustees have robbed the money of the people before. This has become clear everywhere. They wrote fake bills and stole the money of the population. Nobody should be surprised about the reaction of the people now. Today, they are seizing our municipalities by means of various criminal procedures and plots.”
 
The Kurdish politician stressed that they will not bow, adding; "There must be a Kurdish alliance. Either we form such an alliance and we are successful or the rulers will continue to play dirty games on our country.”
 
Martyrs of the hunger strike resistance remembered
 
Güven also remembered the martyrs of the hunger strike resistance and emphasized: "We are not in need of anyone. We will strengthen our own resistance and be 100 percent successful."
 
Güven then visited the family of 22-year-old Mahsum Pamay, who had taken his own life in prison in April in protest at the isolation imposed on Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan. Following the visit which witnessed emotional moments, Güven and other party members visited the cemetery.
