National unity march from Lausanne to Geneva to start on Saturday
On 5 and 6 December Kurds and their friends will march for 'national unity' from Lausanne to Geneva.
On 5 and 6 December Kurds and their friends will march from Lausanne to Geneva. The 'National Unity March' has been organised by many institutions, parties, intellectuals, writers, artists, artists, journalists, academicians, Christians, Kurds, Syriac-Chaldean, Assyrian Armenians, Turkmen, Alevi, Muslim, Yazidi, women, and youth.
In the call issued by the organisers, it is underlined while the march will start in Lausanne. "In the twentieth century, when the Middle East was shared, European colonial states tried to dominate the people of the region by forming nation-states despite the will of the people, and the oppressive regimes put in charge by them have been vomiting blood out of people of the region for the past century."
The Treaty of Lausanne was signed in the city "as the massacre decree of the people of Kurdistan, in order to prevent the disasters, we have experienced again", said the statement adding that "for the first time, the powers exploiting the Kurdish people; The Turkish, Iranian, Iraqi and Syrian states have entered into such a weak and disintegrating phase. History offers a gold opportunity to all oppressed people, especially the Kurds. Today, the Kurds have entered a stage where they can achieve a result with national unity."
The march will reach Geneva on 6 December. "Our other aim in the march - said the statement issued by the organisers - is to protest against the invasion of Rojava Kurdistan which has taken place since 9 October and massacres committed by the Turkish state since then. We call upon the peoples of the world and the supporters of democracy and rule of law to be sensitive about ongoing Turkey's crimes against humanity in Rojava and, urge international institutions, and especially the United Nations to fulfill their moral and legal responsibilities."
