The Turkish state’s invasion policies against Kurdistan will be protested worldwide on May 26. Saleh Moslem called on the Kurds to unite, putting emphasis on the importance of participation in demonstrations against Turkey’s expansionist mentality.
The Turkish state’s practices of invasion against Afrin and Kurdistan will be protested worldwide on May 26, Saturday with the motto “Global Action Day against Turkish occupation of Kurdistan”.
Among the first signatories fort he global action against Turkish invasion of Kurdistan are #DefendAfrin Platform; Prof. Kariane Westrheim chairperson EU Turkey Civic Commission, Professor at the University of Bergen. Former Rafto Board Member; Rev, Fr. Joe Ryan, Chair of the Westminster Justice and Peace Commission (UK). Demonstrations will be held all around the world from Japan to Canada.
In the manifesto launching the Global Action Day, the signatories underlined that “The Erdogan government has taken the colonial ambitions of the Turkish state to a whole new level. It now aims to destroy all the gains made by the Kurds in both the South and West of Kurdistan. If this is not achievable, then they would like to lay siege to the Kurdish territories and suffocate them”.
Speaking to ANF, TEV-DEM (Movement for a Democratic Society) Foreign Affairs Committee Spokesman Saleh Moslem called on the Kurds to unite, putting emphasis on the importance of participation in demonstrations against Turkey’s expansionist mentality.
Moslem called on all Kurdish people everywhere, and friends of the Kurdish people, and all pro-democracy movements, powers and institutions to stand with the Kurdish people on May 26.
“Because we all have to take action against Erdoğan’s and his party AKP’s dangerous policies or the Middle East, which don’t only target the Kurdish people, but target all humanitarian values in all the Middle East and the world as well. If nobody tells him to stop, he will just turn into another version of Hitler and he will destroy not only the Middle East, but the whole world.”
Remarking that these policies are very dangerous for all humanity, Moslem said; “We have been experiencing the World War III in Syria for the last 7 years. It has been Turkish policies and Erdoğan himself who has abstained from any political solution. He is dangerous, and he prevents any possible solutions. Erdoğan is trying to create conflict among NATO, Russia and the Americans. These are very dangerous policies. All who want to see stability in the Middle East and the world should say no to Turkish policies and to the politics of Mr. Erdoğan and his party. Otherwise, we are all going to face many bad outcomes, for all of humanity, especially in Europe.”
According to Moslem, this threat is not only against the Kurdish people, it is against Arabs and also Europeans.
“Erdoğan is trying to create a safe zone in Afrin for the terrorists. He is trying to make Afrin a capital for terrorism, instead of Raqqa or Mosul. These efforts should be stopped by all. As Kurdish people, we push back against his policies, and we need all our friends’ help, for our friends to stand with us and be on our side, so we will be able to stop him. Otherwise, everybody is going to lose.”
