DİYARBAKIR- HDP Youth Assembly Spokesperson Betül Ünsal stated that they met with almost 200 young people with the feasibility studies carried out in different regions within the scope of the "Take Action Together" campaign, and they are trying to set an agenda regarding isolation.

The campaign 'Take Action Together' initiated by the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) Youth Assembly in June, continues its work against harassment, rape and drugs.
HDP Youth Assembly Spokesperson Betül Ünsal told that they have been meeting with young people from all ages in different parts of Turkey since June and have been raising awareness. Emphasizing that as tha aggravated isolation of PKK Leader Abdullah Öcalan deepens, the problems in Turkey have been deepened as well, Ünsal said they aim to break the isolation with all the activities they have developed within the scope of the campaign.
Stating that they are trying to set an agenda regarding the isolation imposed on PKK Leader Abdullah Öcalan and other prisoners in prisons, Ünsal told that they are working on understanding what the isolation means, exposing the isolation and taking action against isolation and said: "Being quarantined for 14 days due to the Covid-10 outbreak has been difficult for a lot of people. But Mr. Öcalan is being isolated for the last 22 years. The reform President Erdoğan is speaking about does not sound convincing. If they want the country to be democratic, the adress is İmralı. The isolation on the people will not be removed unless the isolation on Mr. Öcalan is removed."
