organizations based in Europe and the US reacted against the arrest
of HDP co-chairs Selahattin Demirtaş and Figen Yüksekdağ and other
MPs of HDP, and the increasing violations of democracy and
human rights in Turkey.
The statement is released by European Armenian Federation for Justice and Democracy (EAFJD). The detention and arrest of HDP MPs is noted and Erdoğan and Turkish government are condemned.
Expressing their solidarity with HDP, the members of Brussels-based EAFJD stated that the detentions and arrests are unlawful.
ANCA also reacted against the recent developments
The Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) also reacted against the arrest of HDP co-chairs Selahattin Demirtaş and Figen Yüksekdağ and other MPs of HDP.
Washington-based ANCA condemned the arrests that they consider unlawful and launched a campaign urging the US government and US Department of State to do something about these developments in Turkey.
ANCA also urged the US Secretary of State John Kerry to do more than just condemning the arrests and take concrete steps to making HDP MPs released.
