The European Kurdish Women’s Movement (TJK-E) has made a statement after the first stage of the “100 Reasons to Judge the Dictator” campaign and announced it would apply to the United Nations and international organisations with a case detailing Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s crimes, along with the 235,727 signatures they have collected to ensure Erdoğan’s trial.
The campaign was launched to seek justice for the women who have been murdered during the Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) 19 years of rule in Turkey.
The progress of the campaign was announced in a press statement in Zurich, Switzerland.
Neslihan Kılıç made the statement on behalf of the TJK-E, drawing attention to the resistance of women against the oppressive politics of the AKP and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP).
Tens of thousands of people participated in the campaign, Kılıç said, the campaign collected 235,727 signatures from across world.
Kılıç stated they would carry on the judicial struggle in the second stage of the campaign and called on women everywhere to rise up and fight for freedom.
