Turkish attacks against South Kurdistan condemned in Paris

The invasion attacks of the Turkish state against South Kurdistan have been condemned at a demonstration in Place de la Republique in Paris.

Promoted by the French Kurdish Women's Movement (TJK-F) and the French Democratic Kurdish Society (CDK-F), the demonstration also commemorated the martyrs of freedom in Rojava and Kurdistan.

The action was also attended by the Socialist Women's Union (SBP), Turkish Migrant Workers Cultural Center (ACTIT), Maoist Communist Party (MKP) and Young Struggle (YS).

Commemoration, speeches were made on behalf of ACTİT, SBP, CDK-F and YS.

The speeches paid tribute to the 33 activists murdered in Suruç on 20 July 2015 as a result of a suicide attack by ISIS. They were bringing toys to the children of Kobane.

Necmettin Demiralp, a co-spokesperson for the Paris Democratic Kurdish Community Center, said that the Suruç massacre is actually "continuing with the invasion attacks against Southern Kurdistan today" and pointed out that the Turkish state wants "to destroy the achievements made by the Rojava Revolution."

Following the commemoration, the activists marched from République Square to Bastille Square with the slogan “Freedom for Öcalan” and “Long live Rojava Revolution”.
