An action was organised in the Hague, the Netherlands, to draw attention to the serious situation of lawyers Ebru Timtik and Aytaç Ünsal who have been on death fast for months demanding a fair trial.
The action was held in front of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and was promoted by the Democracy Platform made up of Turkish and Kurdish institutions.
Democracy Platform components AVEG-KON, SKB, DemNed, ADHK and ATIK said that the fasting lawyers are demanding their universal rights to fair trial and free defense.
Activists in their speeches underlined the constant targeting of women in Rojava and the attacks on South Kurdistan. The Turkish State, they said, is attacking women, journalists, intellectuals and violating human rights in prison.
