During their resistance, they have sent their solidarity messages to their resisting friends in Turkey. The message says "We declare that we are in solidarity with the actions you organize against the increasing intervention of the AKP and the AKP-led government in universities and academic life in order to accelerate privatization and suppress the political struggle of students."
