Activists in Zurich protest Turkish fascism
The Turkish state's invasion attacks on Kurdistan and the massacres against the civilian population were protested in Zurich.
A march was organised in Zurich by the Kurdistan Democratic Forces Union and joined by Swiss as well as Turkish and Kurdish activists in their thousands. Activists were protesting the occupation of Kurdistan and the attacks carried out by the Turkish state.
People gathered in Rathausbrücke behind a banner saying "Shoulder to shoulder against fascism." Thousands of people marched chanting slogans against the occupation attacks targeting women and children.
During the march in the city center, the protesters made several sit-ins at important points reading a statement in German.
The people arrived in Helvetiaplatz where they held a rally. A minute silence to pay tribute to the martyrs of the Revolution and freedom was observed after which speakers from the IDGB condemned the AKP-MHP dictatorship and said that its fascism a threat not only to Kurdistan but also to European countries. The darkness of fascism, said the activists, can only be overcome with the unity of the resisting peoples.
The rally ended with slogans after the speeches by representatives of CDK Switzerland and Swiss Alternative institutions.
