URFA - A member of Yaşam Evi Women's Solidarity Association, who is on sit-in with the Şenyaşar family, Serpil Geyik said: "We are here to give a voice to a mother's cry for justice."
The Justice Watch carried out by the Şenyaşar family has reached day 528. The sit-in was launched on March 9, 2021 by Emine Şenyaşar, who lost her husband and two sons as a result of the attack carried out by AKP MP İbrahim Halil Yıldız's bodyguards and relatives in the Suruç province of Urfa, on June 14, 2018. Emine Şenyaşar and her son came to the Urfa Courthouse from their house in Suruç district. The mother and son, who have been prevented from sitting in the shade at the entrance of the courthouse by the police since August 8, started the sit-in in the "Şenyaşar family justice corner" together with the Yaşam Evi Women's Solidarity Association.
'JUSTICE WILL SERVE ONE DAY'
Emine Şenyaşar talked about the massacre they were subjected to and the struggle for justice to the women. Speaking about the family's demand for justice, a member of the Yaşam Evi Women's Solidarity Association, Serpil Geyik said: "We wanted to support Emine Şenyaşar's sit-in for justice. We are here to give voice to a mother's cry for justice. Days, months, years don't matter. But we believe that justice will come one day. As women, we share Emine Şenyaşar's suffering. Emine Şenyaşar is waiting here at the door of the courthouse in a feudal place like Urfa. As women, we are always on the side of 'justice'. Today we will also stage a one-day sit-in.”
