The We Will Stop Femicide Platform called for action after the murder of 8 women in 24 hours. In the statement was said: "8 murders of women in one day are not a coincidence, they are the work of the government."
The statement continued with the following statements: "Sevilay Karlı and Tuba Ateşci were killed by the men they divorced, Hatun Aslan, Elif Saydam and Ozlem Çankaya were killed by the men they wanted to divorce, Emine Ulkü Araz and Nasim Gol Karimi were killed by the men they were married to, Dilan Ozdemir was killed by her father. These data are not a coincidence. Women are killed within the family, with the consequences of the 'sacred family'.
Those who ignore our solutions to stop femicide are also trying to ignore this news. The whole society sees that real data is not a coincidence. We will hold accountable the hundreds of women who were killed while struggling to live freely. We will end the era of public officials who do not do their duty, those who pursue misogynist policies and those who want to confine women within four walls. We invite you to our determined struggle. Come to Kadıköy Süreyya Opera on March 3 at 15:00 pm."
