Support HDP political prisoners.

THE FACTS

  • As of today, there are 9 elected HDP MPs, 58 elected mayors, and at least 5,000 party members and activists in prison in Turkey.
  • The vast majority of these individuals are accused of terrorism or other anti-state offenses— simply for exercising their democratic rights.
  • The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that some of these political detentions "pursued the predominant ulterior purpose of stifling pluralism and limiting freedom of political debate." 
  • International pressure works. When policymakers and civil society condemn governments that imprison peaceful opposition, there are real results.
