Letter of Condolence by the HDP’s Women MPs on the Assassination of Jo Cox


Dear Mr. Corbyn,

We have learned with deep sorrow the assassination of Labor Party member, remarkable woman politician Ms Jon Cox. We condemn the masculine hatred and truculency that took Ms Jon Cox known for her social work, work with refugees and efforts to promote women’s participation in politics from among us.

We convey our sincere condolences to you, to Ms Cox’ family and to women.


Yours truly,
