DİYARBAKIR - Families who have been sitting in front of HDP for their children whom they claim were abducted, are doing what they are told. 

The families most of whom consists of people whose sons are in law enforcement and were detained by HPG, have been sitting in front of Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) Diyarbakır Provincial building. Even though they look like they are doing a sit in, are actually kept waiting. 
The families whose numbers vary between 10- 15, are taken from their places every morning and brought to the empty area in front of the HDP building with midibuses and armored vehicles accompanied by a large number of policemen under the name of protection. Lunches are met through some associations close to government, families are given tents to stay warm. One day they knit sweaters and beanies for the soldiers in North and East Syria, the other they they knit scarves for President Tayyip Erdogan and MHP President Devlet Bahçeli.
The families who are kept waiting in front of HDP building whole day, are being invited to events organized by Diyarbakır Governorate and AKP. 
The families who do not accept the role they have to play, or criticize it, are removed from the area just like they removed Remziye Akkoyun on November 5. 
The families targeting HDP rather than PKK while talking to the press, often attack the building with stones and harass those who enter the building. The police who stays at the area all they with the families stays unresponsive to the situation and just watch.
