Kurds in Germany organize march to protest anti-Kurdish policies of US
Kurdish people and their friends in Germany will protest the US which remained silent and was a part of the Turkish state's large-scale attacks on Medya Defense Zones.
The Kurdish people and their friends in Germany are preparing to protest the United States, which remains silent on the Turkish state's large-scale attacks on Medya Defense Zones. The protest will be held in front of the US embassy on Wednesday, July 28 at 11:00. It will be carried out under the motto “America; do not be a partner to the occupation of Kurdistan and the genocide of the Kurdish people.
Kurdish organizations KON-MED and FED-KURD released a joint statement calling for broad participation in the protest.
"America! Do not be a partner to the occupation of Kurdistan and the genocide of the Kurdish people! The freedom struggle of the Kurdish people led by the Kurdish Freedom Movement has been going on for forty years. The impact it created has led to very important consequences not only in Kurdistan, Turkey and the Middle East, but also all over the world. It has become the main actor in the Middle East. However, since the international forces aim at deepening the crisis in the Middle East, they decided to purge the Kurdish Freedom Movement,” the statement said.
“The Turkish state launched a large-scale attack on the Medya Defence Zones on April 24. It is not a coincidence that this attack arrived following a phone call between Erdogan and Biden. In line with its own interests, the US gave a green light to the Turkish state's attack on Medya Defence Zones by subjecting a people to genocide. Neither these attacks nor the purge of the freedom struggle of the Kurdish People can be understood if we do not realize this fact.
Putting the Kurdish Freedom Movement on a terrorist list and the bounty on its three top members also means giving support to the Turkish state's war policy. The bounty on three top members of the Kurdish Freedom Movement coincided with a period when the Turkish state has escalated its policy of committing genocide against the Kurds in Bakure (South) Kurdistan. The conspiracy against the leader of the Kurdish Freedom Movement, Abdullah Öcalan in 1998 is tantamount to the decision of November 6, 2018. To update the bounty on the three friends on April 20 means that there has been a conspiracy and purge attack against the Kurdish Freedom movement and the freedom struggle of the Kurdish people in the person of these friends. It is because of these policies that the Turkish state is putting pressure on the Kurdish people in North Kurdistan. The Turkish state has been occupying Rojava. It has launched an invasion attack on Metîna, Zap and Avaşîn. Such policies of the US do not contribute to the solution of the problem, but rather deepen it.
Kurdistan and the Kurds face genocide more than ever. In the face of such an attack which targets the existence of the Kurdish people, the Kurdish people should organize a resistance. No Kurdish political organization or institution should be left out of this resistance. Everyone should take part in this resistance with a spirit of national defence.
We call on the Kurds and friends of the Kurdish people living in Germany to participate in a mass protest in front of the US embassy on Wednesday, July 28, 2021, at 11:00. As we go through a historical period, we believe that it is time to raise our voices."
