“We continue to demand the repeal of the anti-terrorism law adopted at the request of the US imperialism ... (T)his text manifests the potential attacks on the militancy and the participation in political life of the people. We will continue claiming the streets defending the struggle of the people and building the strength of the unified people for national and social liberation.”
