Figen Yüksekdağ: Resistance will definitely win

NEWS CENTER- “Detention operations against the revolutionary democratic forces in Turkey won’t be a solution to the fear of the ruling power, revolutionary solidarity and resistance will definitely win,” said imprisoned HDP Co-Chair Figen Yüksekdağ, who reacted to the detention of ESP Chairperson Çiçek Otlu and many socialists.

HDP Co-Chair Figen Yüksekdağ has released a written message from Kandıra F Type Closed Prison regarding the detention of ESP (Socialist Party of the Oppressed) Chairperson Çiçek Otlu and many socialists. Figen wrote in the message that, “Detention of many socialists in the operations launched against the members of our components parties the Socialist Party of the Oppressed and the Revolutionary Party and many of our friends from Partizan, TÖPG and Halkevleri (Community Centers) in Istanbul, Ankara, İzmir, Antep, Hatay, Dersim, Adana, Dersim, Amed, Erzurum, Bursa and Mersin is directed to break the energy of ‘No’ (referring the constitutional referendum to be held on April 16 in Turkey). The socialists, who say “Hope doesn’t collapse” against many attacks, always manage to overcome such attacks. I believe that, I know that and I saw that.”

Condemning the attacks against the members of the ESP in the person of ESP Chairperson Çiçek Otlu, Figen says, “I call on the HDP’s component organizations, labor and democracy forces to mobilize for NO with a higher determination. Detention operations against the revolutionary democratic forces in Turkey won’t be a solution to the fear of the ruling power, revolutionary solidarity and resistance will definitely win.”
