A group of people attacked the provincial building of the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) in the province of Bolu last night (June 4).
The Bolu Provincial Organization of the HDP announced the attack on its official Twitter account and stated, "Our party building has been attacked by the members of Justice and Development Party (AKP) and Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) accompanied by the police."
During the attack, which the police did not intervene in, several members of the HDP got stuck in the building.
The following messages were shared by the HDP Bolu Provincial Organization on Twitter around midnight:
"An attack is being carried out against the Bolu provincial building of HDP.
"They have burnt our flags in company with the police by chanting slogans in favor of the government and current President [Recep Tayyip Erdoğan].
"The reactionary, fascist group, who cannot stand our colors, is continuing to burn our flags by chanting slogans!
"The police are telling the fascist crowd to go and hide at the backstreets instead of intervening in the attack.
"The fascists and the police are preparing arm in arm for a second attack around our party building."
The message of Meral Danış Beştaş
Around the time when the attack was carried out, Adana MP of the HDP Meral Danış Beştaş posted a message on Twitter. Stating that the number of attackers reached 1,000, Beştaş said,
"The number of people, who walked in company with the police with AKP flags in their hands after HDP's flags were hung in Bolu, reached 1,000 after they took down and burnt the HDP flags. At the moment, 30 people, including our provincial co-chair, are waiting at our provincial building. We know who are responsible if one of them is hurt." (ŞA/SD)
