Action against PKK ban in Kassel

Internationalist activists have carried out actions in Kassel on the 27th anniversary of the PKK ban.

November 26 marks the 27th anniversary of the ban on the activities of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Germany. With the banning of the Kurdish freedom movement by the then CDU Minister of the Interior, Manfred Kanther, a period of permanent repression against any expression of the Kurdish freedom movement in Germany began that continues to this day.

During the protest against the ban of the PKK, internationalists carried out a series of actions in Kassel on Sunday night. They hung banners on bridges and public buildings demanding an end to the criminalization of the Kurdish resistance. Already on Saturday, corresponding protest actions had taken place in many cities across Germany.
