We have noticed your solidarity actions. This really helps and honors us. I greet and thank everyone who shows us solidarity.
I’m sitting here in prison as a European socialist, and as a researcher, author, and student. But many prisoners from Turkey are sitting here as well. Comrades, MPs, and even elected mayors are in prison here. From this point of view, there is nothing special about my situation. Turkey is going through difficult times. A regime change is taking place. This is the reason why we are here.
Unfortunately it is a reality that the struggle for freedom and socialism is attacked and criminalized by those in power. This is why international solidarity is so important.
I greet you all once more. I wish the best for all of us. My warmest and most sincere greetings. We are doing fine in spite of everything.
