Action video from Frankfurt against the PKK ban

In Frankfurt, internationalists carried graffiti, lettering and symbols in solidarity with the PKK into the cityscape and made a short video about the PKK ban and the actions.

Today, November 21, is the decentralized day of action against the 27-year ban on activities of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in Germany. The nationwide initiative "Our Utopia against your Repression" came to the public a few weeks ago with an eponymous appeal to the public, which contains the idea of joint struggles for an anti-racist, anti-capitalist, feminist, ecological and democratic society and is supported by numerous political groups. Originally, a large demonstration was planned in Cologne, but due to increasing numbers of new coronavirus infections and the resulting stricter rules in North Rhine-Westphalia, the organisers decided to hold a decentralized day of action.

In Frankfurt am Main, internationalist activists were already on the road last night, saying: "We felt obliged to the call, if not centrally then decentrally, to make the symbols, colors, names of the PKK visible everywhere, so as not to accept the unspeakable ban. For us the PKK means hope for a different society and a better world. And we will not let this be taken away, not by the Turkish, not by the German or any other state. Long live international solidarity! Long live the PKK!”
