I beg you, give us the good news with the arrival of our children. Do what you do to your son, to my son. Pour water on these smoldering mothers' heart.

Pointing out that they do not demand any money or property from anyone but demand their children back as their right, mother Ayşegül Biçer continued as follows:
"We get insulted every day while sitting here. They say we get money and talk here. Definitely is fame, and not true. We are here in our free will. The day we came, we said,' death or victory.' We don't bow to threats.
'Why are you sitting outside the HDP office, why are you not sitting outside the AK Party office,' they ask. The AK Party didn't kidnap our children. We are here because the HDP is the branch of Qandil."
Saying that their children were kidnapped through HDP office and that is the reason they have staged a sit-in protest outside the party office, painful mother concluded that they want their children back.
