The European Court for Human Rights (ECHR) has accepted the trial on Hasankeyf as an urgent case. In 2006 five persons have applied to the ECHR and in 2015 the trial achieved its final round.
A group of DBP youth marched from Batman to Hasankeyf in order to protest the Ilisu Dam and for the rescuing of Hasankeyf.
The march started in front of the municipality of Batman. The protestors argued that their aim is to defend the water, land, energy and culture of the region against profit and repression.
