‘Erdogan Not Welcome’ Initiative calls for protest in Berlin on Friday
The ‘Erdogan Not Welcome’ Initiative calls for protest action next Friday in front of the Office of the Federal Chancellor in Berlin, saying: "We don't want this fascist dictator in Berlin or in Turkey!"
The ‘Erdogan Not Welcome’ Initiative is calling for protest action in front of the Office of the Federal Chancellor in Berlin next Friday.
"Erdogan is inciting the peoples of Anatolia, Mesopotamia, the Middle East, the Aegean and the Caucasus against each other and cannot stand peaceful coexistence in Germany either. First, he sent his aide to Neuss to create a basis for hatred and enmity. Now the dictator wants to come in person and meet the German president and chancellor," said the statement by the initiative ahead of the Turkish President’s visit to the German capital.
For Erdogan critics and especially for Kurds, there is no security in Germany, as in Turkey, the initiative stated, referring to the AKP MP Mustafa Açıkgöz, who last weekend openly called for the destruction of opposition members in a mosque in Neuss.
“This call was also heard by German politicians and authorities. We condemn the fact that German politicians still want to meet with Erdogan. We demand an end to support for Erdogan at all levels. For peace and security in Germany, we demand a ban on mosques and associations as well as election campaign events of the AKP and MHP," said the initiative and called for a protest against the Turkish regime leader and his supporters on 27 January at 1 p.m. in front of the Office of the Federal Chancellor: "We don't want this fascist dictator in Berlin or in Turkey!"
In 2018, the 'Erdogan Not Welcome' Initiative was supported by 138 organisations on the occasion of the Turkish president's visit to Germany, and protests took place across Germany.
