KCDK-E: Defend Kurdistan against Turkish occupation on September 1
Under the slogan "Defend Kurdistan against Turkish occupation", a central protest action of the Kurdish association KCDK-E will take place in front of the European Parliament in Brussels on September 1.
The Kurdish European Association KCDK-E calls for broad protests against the attacks of the Turkish state on Kurdistan on the occasion of the World Peace Day on September 1. Under the slogan "Defend Kurdistan against Turkish occupation", a central protest action will take place in front of the European Parliament in Brussels.
"To live in freedom and peace in a world without war is the fundamental right of all people and also of the Kurdish people," said the KCDK-E in its appeal, pointing to the Turkish crimes in Kurdistan. The attacks are aimed at genocide and are ignored by the international public, it noted.
"In front of the eyes of international institutions and the world public, the fascist AKP/MHP government has bombed medical facilities in Shengal and Rojava. Dozens of people have been killed and injured. The Turkish state is encouraged in its attacks, which violate international law, by the silence of Europe, the UN and NATO. In recent months, indiscriminate massacres are being committed against the Kurdish people. People are being expelled from their homes, different methods of attack and chemical weapons are being used, the nature, society and historical structures of Kurdistan are to be eliminated," the KCDK-E appeal stated.
The statement continued, “In order to overcome the state crisis in Turkey and its own weakness, the Erdogan regime relies on racist and nationalist agitation and has sworn itself to war against the Kurdish people. The Turkish state justifies its expansionist aspirations with security interests and occupies foreign territories. It wants to revive its neo-Ottoman dreams in the Middle East, the Mediterranean region and the Caucasus and uses the methods and mindset of ISIS in all its attacks."
KCDK-E pointed out that Abdullah Öcalan presented a social model for the free coexistence of all social groups that is applicable to all of humanity and offers a solution, especially in the darkness of the third world war waged in the Middle East. These conceptions must find world-wide spreading today more than ever, it said.
KCDK-E called on the Kurds living in Europe to speak out for peace, liberty and democracy everywhere on 1 September, inviting Kurds and their friends from Belgium, the Netherlands, north France and North Rhine-Westphalia to join the central action in front of the European Parliament on the Place du Luxembourg in Brussels.
