Kurdish activists in London protest against Turkish crimes in Rojava

Kurdish youth organized a march in London against the invasion attacks of the Turkish state.

In London, a march and information campaign was organized today by the Revolutionary Youth Movement (Tevgera Ciwanên Şoreşger) and Kurdish youth from universities in protest at the closure of Rojava's airspace and the invading Turkish state's attacks on civilians.

The young people gathered in Leicester Square to inform the people of London about the war crimes against civilians in Rojava, stating that everyone must protect and defend the revolution that is flourishing in Rojava.

The statement by the activists said:

"The occupying Turkish state is attacking Rojava very violently and committing war crimes. Every day they attack civilians with drones and want to depopulate Rojava. However, the Kurdish people and the people of Rojava are resolutely defending their democratic spaces, resisting and setting an example for the Middle East with this unique resistance.

There is no other place in the Middle East that shows such a will to live together. Ethnic Arabs, Kurds, Turkmens, Armenians and Syriacs are living in peace on the basis of democratic autonomy and setting an example for everyone. This is very important. Christians, Yazidis, Jews, Muslims, Agnostics, Alevis and other faiths live together in freedom and peace."

The young activists marched to Trafalgar Square, distributed leaflets and made the following statement:

"A new life is being built in Rojava with global values, women's revolution, democratic nation, ecological approach, under the leadership of Leader Abdullah Öcalan’s ideas. These values are the biggest threats to the barbaric Turkish state because the existence of the Turkish state is based on the destruction of cultures, nations and languages. The Kurdish people, who have succeeded in resisting the occupying states, have shown the whole world what resistance brings. People from all over the world are flocking to Rojava to preserve and strengthen this hope for life. As Kurdish students and youth, we call on international powers to stop supporting occupying states like Turkey because a hundred years ago this barbaric state committed genocide against Armenians and Greeks and wanted to destroy Kurds. We say, do not be a partner in death and genocide. Defend democracy, equality and the women's revolution."
