Call to join demos for Kurds and Palestinians on Saturday

Saturday 27 June will be a day of struggle in many Italian cities.

Mobilizations are planned in many Italian cities to stand beside the Kurdish and Palestinian people. The events are organized by the respective communities in Bari, Bologna, Catania, Genoa, Milan, Naples Messina, Palermo, Pisa, Rome, Salerno, Venice, Vicenza and other cities.

The current situation gives us a dramatic situation in both cases.

In these days, in Turkey there is yet another wave of repression by the Erdogan regime against the opposition, the critical media, democratic lawyers, the mayors of several cities in the country, political prisoners, HDP parliamentarians. At the same time, the Turkish air force has resumed its air strikes against Kurdish positions and the civilian population, particularly on South Kurdistan.

On 27 June, representatives of Kurdish communities around the world will take to the streets.

Likewise, in Palestine, the Israeli Nethaniau-Gantz government, once again violating international law and UN resolutions, wants to annex further Palestinian territories and is preparing to do so on 1 July.

In the call for participation, Rifondazione Comunista e Rete Kurdistan, say it is “now time to act.”
