Yazidis in Shengal protest Turkish occupation offensive
The Kurdistan Freedom Guerrilla resistance has been embraced by the people of Shengal who joined a march to protest the occupation of the Turkish state in the region.
Borik Youth Center organized a march yesterday under the leadership of Yazidi Youth Union (YCÊ) and Yazidi Young Women’s Union (YJCÊ). Masses joined the march and protested against the Turkish state's recent invasion attacks in southern Kurdistan (northern Iraq) and against the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) which remains silent against the Turkish offensive. The crowd stressed that the Kurdish Freedom guerrilla resisted for all of Kurdistan.
People displayed posters of Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan and chanted slogans in favor of the guerrilla resistance in Metina, Avashin and Zap.
"THIS IS A WAR SEEKING TO ELIMINATE KURDS"
The march ended in front of the Daqa People's Assembly, where a statement was made on behalf of YCÊ and YJCÊ. The statement greeted the guerrilla resistance saying that "The Turkish state has started an invasion attack again. The KDP is acting together with the Turkish state that wants to commit a genocide against the people who want to live free based on the ideas of Abdullah Öcalan. The Kurdish people have been fighting against the patriarchal system for years. The KDP administration is seeking to reflect the Turkish assault as if directed at the PKK. The people of South Kurdistan should not be deceived by these lies. This war is a war seeking to eliminate the Kurds. As Yazidi youth and young women, we regard the attacks on the guerrilla as attacks on ourselves. We are ready to fight alongside the guerrilla.”
