The Turkish regime continues its political elimination campaign against the Kurds and the opposition unabated.

Abdullah Sarısu, Veysel Say, Mizgin Çiftçi, Azad Koç and Abdulsemih Güç were detained in Urfa earlier today on the allegation of “making propaganda for an illegal organisation”. The detainees were taken to the Provincial Security Directorate.

It is reported that Mizgin Çiftçi’s brother was subjected to police violence during the detention.

The Turkish state has detained hundreds of people in recent weeks. On 21 May, around 30 people were detained in Istanbul on the grounds of participation in May Day demonstrations.

In the first 18 days of May, at least 372 people were detained, at least 108 people were imprisoned and 2 people were placed under house arrest.
