Kurdish organisations mobilise for Düsseldorf rally on June 25
Kurdish organisations from all over Europe are mobilising for the Düsseldorf rally on June 25 when a large demonstration against the Turkish attacks will take place under the slogan "Defending Kurdistan means defending the revolution".
Under the umbrella of "Organisations and Institutions from Kurdistan in Europe", a broad spectrum of associations and organisations are mobilising for the demonstration organised by the alliance "Defend Kurdistan" in Düsseldorf on June 25. A large number of parties from South Kurdistan, from PUK to Gorran and from Rojava, from the PYD to the Left Party and the PDKS, are also calling for the demonstration. Organisations from Eastern Kurdistan such as KODAR and PJAK are also taking part in the appeal.
"All achievements are threatened"
The joint appeal says: "Today, the Turkish state is carrying out a cruel policy of massacres and occupation in Kurdistan. All the achievements and values of the Kurdish people are under attack. The Turkish state violates international law and conventions and relentlessly attacks South Kurdistan, Shengal and Rojava. As if that were not enough, chemical weapons are being used against the guerrillas and the Kurdish people."
"Resistance in the spirit of Kurdish unity"
Referring to the Turkish neo-Ottoman expansionism, the call states that it is a "total attack on the achievements won with great sacrifices" and that in order to defend them, it is the duty of every person in Kurdistan to mobilise for resistance: "It is necessary to rise together in resistance in the spirit of Kurdish unity against chemical weapons attacks, the murderous attacks on civilians and guerrillas, and against the occupation and attacks on Rojava, South Kurdistan, Shengal and Maxmur."
"Participation in the demonstration is a moral obligation"
On this basis, the associations state, "It is everyone's national, moral, ethical and human duty to participate in the demonstration against the Turkish policy of massacres and invasion under the slogan 'Defend Kurdistan' on 25 June. This is about defending our dignity, our future and our values."
