KCDK-E calls for participation in protest demo against Erdoğan in Paris

The European Kurdistan Democratic Societies Congress called on all Kurds and democratic circles to participate in the protest to be held during the visit of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to Berlin on January 27.

The European Kurdistan Democratic Societies Congress (KCDK-E) released a written statement on Monday about the planned protest demonstration against Turkish President Erdoğan during his visit to Germany this Friday.

The KCDK-E statement on Monday includes the following:

“Dictator Erdoğan is going on a European tour to maintain his power and to win the upcoming elections in the face of the growing social reaction and opposition to his government in Turkey and Kurdistan.


The bloody dictator Erdogan will come to Berlin on January 27. He will go on a tour to garner support from Europe to preserve his oppression, persecution, massacre and genocide. The AKP-MHP fascist alliance, which attacks Kurds, Alevis, revolutionaries, democrats, leftists, socialists, youth, workers, women and intellectuals, hopes to freshen its exposed face.

The isolation of Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan in the Imrali prison, the occupation and massacres in Kurdistan, and the anti-democratic fascist policies have a tight grip on the peoples and workers of Turkey. In the eyes of the impoverished people and tens of thousands of dissidents put into prisons, Erdoğan is now persona non grata.

During dictator Erdoğan’s visit to Berlin in 2018, a protest took place under the lead of the ‘Erdogan Not Welcome Initiative’. During his next visit to Berlin, Erdogan will be protested against under the motto "Unerwünschte person" (Persona Non Grata in German). In terms of the struggle for democracy and freedom, it is important for opposition groups from Kurdistan and Turkey to expand their reaction on January 27.


For the peoples who have migrated to Europe, Erdoğan is Persona Non Grata. Hundreds of thousands of people living in Europe do not want to see dictator Erdoğan in Berlin. On this basis, as the KCDK-E, we urge our people to join the mass march and protest to be held in Berlin under the initiative of the European Democratic Forces Union on January 27 under the motto Erdoğan: Persona Non Grata (Erdoğan Unerwünschte Person).  

We do not want dictator Erdoğan in Europe, who organized the two Paris massacres, attacks all values of the Kurdish people, denies their language and culture, attacks the freedom guerrillas with chemical weapons, imprisons thousands of people and massacres women, young people, the elderly and children.

Carrying its attacks to Europe with the Paris massacres, the Turkish state has ordered the killing of the Kurds and dissidents in Germany. No democratic country should come to terms with Erdoğan, the mastermind of all these dirty policies.

We will be in Berlin on January 27 to expose dictator Erdoğan, who organizes all kinds of attacks and provocations to maintain his fascist government, and who attacks the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) that represents the common struggle and hope of the peoples.

Let us expose Erdoğan, the enemy of the peoples, who holds Öcalan captive under a torture system in Imrali.

As the KCDK-E, we urge our people to mobilize massively and to participate in the demonstration to be held in front of the Office of the Federal Chancellor in Berlin at 13:00 on January 27.”
