Democratic Kurdish Community Centers established in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland and Kurdish organizations and groups gathered in Örebro, Sweden at the weekend.
During the 2-day meeting, an agreement was reached to unite efforts throughout Scandinavia in order to contribute to the coordinated struggle of Kurds and their friends in Scandinavian countries.

Co-chairs of Norway, Denmark and Finland Democratic Kurdish Community Centers have been elected to the board of the new formation.
At the meeting, a series of concrete decisions were taken in solidarity with the Kurdish Freedom Movement and the Kurdish people against the genocide operations carried out by the Turkish state in Kurdistan.
Simultaneous mass demonstrations will be held in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Oslo and Helsinki on 22 August to support the resistance against the Turkish state in South Kurdistan and to salute the resistance of Heftanin.
It was decided that the Scandinavian Culture Festival, which could not be held in a closed hall this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, will be held outside in Stockholm, Västerås, Helsinki, Oslo and Copenhagen in September and will be renamed "Kurdish Culture Days".
On 9 October long marches will be organised in Stockholm and Malmö, as well as Copenhagen to protest the international conspiracy against the Kurdish people in the person of Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan, and to remove the PKK from the terrorist organizations list. The long marches will also demand the Swedish state to apologize to the Kurdish people, wrongly accused of the murder of Olof Palme.
On the same day, actions will be held in front of the Swedish embassies in Oslo and Helsinki with the same demands.
Speaking to ANF, the co-chair of the Scandinavian Democratic Kurdish Community Center, Rıdvan Altun, said that the new organization will soon show its effects throughout Scandinavia on social, political and diplomatic fields. He added that there will be a significant increase in mass actions against the Turkish state.
Altun called on the Kurdish people and their friends to participate in the actions to be held on 22 August in order to support the guerrillas defending the honour of the Kurdish people against the Turkish state in Heftanin and added: “We believe that the guerrilla will achieve victory in Heftanin and we believe that this victory will open the door to great Kurdistan.”
