Kurds in Europe protest murder of Nagihan Akarsel
Kurds got together in many European cities to protest the murder of Nagihan Akarsel, a member of the Jineology Research Center.
The European Kurdish Movements organised protests against the murder of Nagihan Akarsel, a member of the Jineology Research Center in many European cities. After the Kurds living in the Netherlands, people in Belgium and Germany took to the streets.
An action was held in front of the Brussels central train station. Many people participated in the action organized by the Belgian Kurdish Women's Movement YJK-B.
Nagihan Akarsel's photographs were carried by women chanting "Jin jiyan azadi".
Activists said that “there is a very clear connection between the massacre committed in Paris on 9 January 2013 and targeting Sakine Cansız, Fidan Dogan and Leyla Saylemez, the Kobanê massacre targeting the leaders of Kongra Star on 23 June 2020, and finally the assassination of our comrade Nagihan Akarsel.”
The Dresden Uta Women's Assembly made a statement at Albertplatz to condemn the murder of academic and journalist Nagihan Akarsel, a member of the Jineology Research Center and editor of the Jineology journal, who was murdered in Sulaymaniyah.
The statements written by the European Kurdish Women's Movement (TJK-E), Women Defend Rojava and Kurdish Women's Bureau for Peace for Nagihan Akarsel were read.
The women often chanted "Jin Jiyan Azadi" and "Martyr namirin".
Kurds living in Cologne held a protest in Breslauer Platz.
