Huge Ocalan poster in Berlin
A huge poster of Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Ocalan was hung on a building in Berlin where a massive demonstration in solidarity with Afrin continues.
Around 20 thousand people are joining a massive demonstration in Berlin to show solidarity with the Afrin resistance and urge Germany to end its provision of political and military support to the Turkish state. The demonstration held with the motto “Bridge of Peace and Democracy from Berlin to Afrin” is organized by the Alliance for Democracy and Peace in Afrin, founded by scientists, artists, lawyers and party/union representatives in Germany.
The march continues in Berlin’s central district Mitte with the participation of various folks including Kurds, Turks, Germans and Arabs. Slogans chanted by demonstrators include “German panzers out of Afrin” and “Bijî berxwedana Efrînê” (Long Live Afrin resistance). Activists are holding models of German Leopard tanks, with which Turkey attacks Afrin, to depict the federal government’s complicity in Turkey’s genocidal attacks against Afrin.
As the crowd continued their march near the Federal Ministry of Interior, a huge poster of Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Ocalan was hung on a building, as demonstrators chanted “Freedom for Ocalan” and “Bijî Serok Apo” (Long Live Leader Ocalan”.
The march will end with a rally at Brandenburg Gate.
