To Mehmet’s family and friends, the Kurdish community and editors at The Kurdish Question:
We at Assemblies for Democracy London have been deeply saddened by the news of the killing of Mehmed Aksoy.
We would like to send our sincere condolences to the family, friends and to the Kurdish community of London and the UK.
Mehmed was an eloquent and devoted defender of the Kurdish People’s struggle and a great champion of real democracy. We were very fortunate to have him speak at our Re-Imagining Democracy event in March 2015. We were touched by his passion and knowledge.
We send our deepest wishes of sympathy and solidarity,
Assemblies for Democracy, London
