MARDİN - On the 23rd day of the Democracy Watch in Mardin against the trustees' appointments, the police did not let anyone except MPs enter the Highways Park where the sit in was carried out. A group of citizens who supported the deputies by singing from a distance also intervened by the police.
The Democracy Watch initiated by the People's Democratic Party deputies against the appointment of trustees had a intense start on its 23rd day. The deputies coming out of the party building faced another police blocade that prevented them from entering the park.
There was a debate between the police officials and HDP people after which only the MP's were allowed in the park. The citizens tried to support the deputies by singing but the police and the water cannons waiting aside the park intervened to the citizens. The videos taken by the citizens were deleted by the police.
The HDP MP's made a statement after the sit in. HDP Siirt MP Meral Danış Beştaş read the statement but since there were no press allowed in the park, Mardin MP Ebru Günay broadcasted it from her social media account.
