Residents of Maxmur Refugee Camp march against Turkish state's attacks

The residents of Martyr Rustem Cudi Refugee Camp (Maxmur) organized a march to condemn the Turkish state's attacks and the silence of the Iraqi Central Government.

Posters of Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan were carried at the march organised by the residents of Martyr Rustem Cudi Refugee Camp (Maxmur) to protest the attacks carried out by the Turkish state. The march started in front of the People's Martyrs' Families Association and ended in front of the United Nations building in the camp. The residents read a public statement after a minute’s silence for the Kurdistan Freedom Martyrs.

Ishtar Assembly Member Nuran Sezgin addressed the crowd on behalf of the people of the camp.

She condemned the new attack on Maxmur and said: "We condemn the Turkish state and its collaborators. The fact that the invading Turkish state attacks the camp every day actually reveals its weakness. This attack is not the first, nor will it be the last. The Maxmur people have resisted until now, and they will continue to resist. Turkey attacks civilians after every defeat in the Media Defense Areas. Not only the Turkish state, but all the occupying states and the KDP are attacking the Kurds. But the betrayal of the Turkish state and the KDP will never succeed. The people of Maxmur did not bow before anyone, and won’t do it. We are right and we will win."
