The vortex of violence drags the country into turmoil

The vortex of violence drags the country into turmoil


This time a blast in Kayseri resulted in many deaths and injuries. We condemn this attack in the strongest terms. We would like to express our condolences for the deceased and wish a fast recovery to the wounded, and our deepest sympathy for the families. We are deeply saddened by the vortex of violence Turkey is gradually dragged into, and we share sympathy for the pain.  

We have long passed the stage of settling with messages of condemnation. We all must stand together for peace, democracy, justice and freedom against violence, to end this pain and prevent new tragedies from happening. 

We can overcome these troubled times by being in solidarity, improving conditions and encouraging peace in the country.  This is the first step of putting an end to this turmoil without losing our hopes.

Our call is towards ending the politics, tone and language that creates tension, polarization, hostility, chaos and conflict both in terms of internal and foreign affairs. 

Once again, we would like to express our condolences for the deceased and wish a fast recovery to the wounded, and our deepest sympathy for the families.
