Protest in Kiel against the war policy of the Turkish regime

In Kiel, activists protested against the attacks of the Turkish army on Rojava and Southern Kurdistan.

In the German city of Kiel, activists gathered again for a rally against Turkish war and repression policies.

Besides Turkey's attacks on Southern Kurdistan and Rojava/Northern Syria, the isolation of Abdullah Öcalan was the main topic of the protest. In a report last week, the Council of Europe's Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT) had criticised the conditions of the Kurdish leader’s detention. Abdullah Öcalan is considered a key figure for the solution of the war in Kurdistan and the question of democracy in Turkey and Northern Kurdistan. While the Kurdish movement, which is oriented towards democracy and peace, is fighting for Öcalan's freedom, the Turkish state, which is not interested in a peaceful solution and democratisation, is intensifying the repression against Öcalan.

The activists displayed pictures of Öcalan and flags of the SDF, YPG and YPJ and expressed solidarity with the guerrilla resistance against the Turkish invasion in the region of Heftanin region in Southern Kurdistan and chanted "Long live the resistance of Heftanin - Long live the guerrilla".
