#ObservingTurkey – I recognise your grief, courge, resilience

15th May 2023, Istanbul, Turkey.

The level of grief my Turkish colleagues and comrades: progressive, green politicians, youth, the Kurdish community, and the LGBTQI community need to sustain & be resilient to is inhumane.

Do not allow attempts of isolation & dehumanisation to work. The European community is with you.

And when I leave Turkey, I leave part of my heart here. I will continue to see you, to hear you. Your anger. Your rage. Like I was seeing & hearing your hope & unity in the last week of elections.

We’re not here just for the good. We know the fight is long.

I will continue to work for our LGBTIQ Communities, for democracy, for freedom, against borders – so that you can be welcome in my home when you need to rest.

Serkeftin. We will win. Kazanacağız

Ħarġu r-riżultati preliminari tal-elezzjonijiet fit-Turkija. L-elezzjoni għall-President se jkomplu f’ġimgħatejn bit-tieni rawnd bejn Erdoğan u Kılıçdaroğlu biss.

Solidarjetà mal-kollegi tagħna li dejjem urew r-resiljenza tagħhom fil-ġlieda għal demokrazija, libertà, u d-drittijiet umani.
