Thousands rally in Brussels against the undemocratic imprisonment of HDP MPs

Thousands gathered today at Gare du Nord in Brussels, Flanders Belgium, to attend the march which was organized by Kurdish Women’s Movement in Europe (TJK-E), Kurdish Democratic Congress in Europe (KCDK-E) and Peoples' Democratic Congress Europe Branch (HDK-A). The Flemish pro independence party NV-A (New Flemish Alliance), winner of the last elections in Belgium, has sent a high level delegation. Their MEP, Marc Hendrickx has been very clear: "Neither can there be democracy where the opposition is persecuted. There can be no democracy where there is no press freedom." In fact a constant demonstration claim was to denounce Turkey as a fascist dictatorship.

The protesters carried posters of prisoners as the HDP co-chairs Selahattin Demirtas, Figen Yüksekdağ and other members, protesters are singing slogans protesting the AKP and Turkish President Erdogan. The march ended in front of the Council of Europe.
