We the people who collectively live on these lands, AKP, CHP, HDP, MHP voters and the voters of other parties who are Turkish, Kurdish, Arab, Armenian, Greek, Laz, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Sunni, Alevi, believer or non-believer citizens, want to live in our country freely and in peace and harmony.
We do not want war, we do not want martyrs, we do not want our children to kill or be killed, we do not want them to draw weapons on each other.
We do not want to be devided into enemy sides, we do not want to give up our brotherhood, sisterhood and partnership.
We do not want military coups, dictatorship, terrorism or to live under watch. We want to go about our daily work, freely and in peace.
We do not want to be exploited, assaulted, abused or killed because we are women. We do not want to be belittled because we choose to cover ourselves or assaulted because we choose not to. We do not want to live in fear because of our external appearance.
We, men and women, want to live our lives in a state that respects our beliefs, religions and cultures, where we enjoy freedom and equality.
We do not want to live in a land where we are imprisoned without knowing what we are accused of by courts which we do not know what laws they are applying or whom they are acting on behalf of. We do not want to lose our jobs based on someone’s false accusations or fabricated evidence, without having the chance to challenge our accusers.
We do not want our kids to be deprived of good education, our properties to be confiscated, our livelihoods taken away from us by arbitrary decisions. We do not want to be labeled a ‘terrorist’ when we call for peace, or a ‘traitor’ when we speak out for victims. We do not want our property to be confiscated based on arbitrary decisions, the just fruit of our labour, our wages to be taken away from us, our houses and villages to be burnt down and destroyed, our children to miss out on their education or our youths’ lives to be wasted.
We are the people; we are good people with a conscience. Do not use provocations to try and turn us into bad people, do not divide us with words of rancour and hatred, do not try to acclimatize us to blood and death. We do not want war, death, the death penalty, clashes and fights. You who rules his country, you who rule our destiny! You were elected to ensure citizens can live freely, in peace and security, not to oppress us and destroy our freedoms.
Let it be known: We do not consent. We object!
Hear our voice.
