Joint declaration by our Youth Assembly and the SYRIZA Youth:
The decision of the Erdogan's government to turn Hagia Sophia, a World Heritage Site for the entire humanity and all religions, from a museum to a mosque, is a provocative and unacceptable decision. This political choice reinforces religious fundamentalism and nationalism on both sides of the Aegean.
Our people in both countries, share common traditions and culture, which we must protect from any possible attempt of political exploitation by Erdogan. We choose the path of brotherhood and solidarity, the peaceful cultural coexistence of our peoples. We demand the immediate withdrawal of this decision.
