The Peoples’ Equality and Democracy Party announced it will independently field its own candidates in the upcoming local elections across Turkey. This new strategy marks a transformative moment for the party.
Turkey’s Kırıkkale 1st High Criminal Court has dismissed the 1993 Vartinis case. The case involved the tragic death of a Kurdish family in an arson attack, believed to be a retaliatory act by Turkish forces.
Turkey’s public sector workers rallied in Diyarbakir and Istanbul on Saturday against the ruling Justice and Development Party’s 2024 ‘war budget’, demanding allocations that prioritise public welfare and labour interests.
Political prisoners in Turkey enter their eighth day of hunger strike, advocating freedom for PPK leader Abdullah Öcalan. Organisations representing the families of prisoners begin a solidarity vigil in Diyarbakir, Mersin and Adana.
