CDK-F calls for participation at demo against French repression

The CDK-F called on people to attend the demonstration to be held on Saturday in Paris to protest the policy of criminalization against Kurdish activists.

The Kurdish Democratic Council in France (CDK-F) called on people to attend the demonstration "against the repression targeting Kurds in France".

The demonstration will be held on Saturday, 18 May, at 2 pm, in Republic Square in Paris.

The CDK-F said that "the Kurds are victims of terrorism, as they were twice in France in 2013 and 2022; they fought terrorism, as in Kobanê, Raqqa, Shengal and elsewhere, where the fight against jihadist obscurantism cost thousands of young lives. The Kurdish movement is a resistance movement against oppression. Its activists have never represented a threat to French public order. To pretend otherwise is to insult the Kurds and dishonor the values of France."
