Activists protested forced disappearances in Berlin as part of the 17-31 May International Week of Struggle against Forced Disappearances.

People from Kurdistan and Turkey came together in Kottbusser Tor, Berlin and asked the whereabouts of those disappeared under police custody.

The Dest Dan Women's Assembly, the Nav Berlin (Free Kurdistan Assembly), the SKB (Socialist Women's Union), the ZORA and representatives of several other institutions participated in the action organized by the International Committee Against Enforced Disappearances (ICAD).
