Turkey’s Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), one of three opposition parties in the Turkish parliament, is calling for citizens to engage in “honorable resistance” amid a growing military crackdown against Kurds in the nation’s southeast, an operation which has killed at least 69 in the past four days.
The HDP is a strongly pro-minority party and most of their votes come out of the Kurdish southeast, where Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is launching a full-scale war against the PKK rebels, vowing to see Turkey “cleansed” of them.
HDP co-leader Selahattin Demiritas urged party supporters to expand their struggle against the Erdogan government, saying the people of the “lands of Kurdistan” would not be forced to abandon their beliefs by military force of arms.
Erdogan, ironically, initially launched the war at the behest of another opposition party, one vehemently anti-Kurd, though any hope that after winning last month’s election the war would simply be forgotten appears to have been misplaced, as Erdogan’s AKP Party continues to beat the war drums on tamping down Kurdish secessionist movements.

Turkish Erdogan regime is supported by the European Neo fascism, those that are in charge of European NATO section. Erdogan regime by NATO was chosen to be the logistic, political and military supporter of Isis inhuman, barbaric wars in Syria and Iraq where the western falsified democracy know and been encouraging Erdogan activities by all means. Europe, Israel and other oil mafia organizations in return getting cheaper stolen oil from and by Isis, meanwhile Erdogan people are the one profiting from Erdogan rules in turkey.
