The BDP sent an order, signed by BDP co-chairs Selahattin Demirtas and Glutan Kisanak, to all of its provincial and district branches, party assembly members, provincial heads, mayors, women and youth assemblies.
“This massacre is a counter-operation and purge of those circles who don’t want the settlement of the Kurdish issue,” the letter said.
The BDP branches “must send a strong answer to this massacre with protests everywhere today and tomorrow,” the letter added.
At least two people were killed when clashes broke out after police did not allow a group affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) to hold a march on Friday in a town in the southeastern province of Hakkari.
The group claimed some graves of PKK members had been damaged. It held a demonstration in protest and the police clashed with them.
