Tribute to four Kurdish patriots murdered in Berlin in 1999
Four Kurdish patriots who were murdered in front of the Israeli Consulate in Berlin while protesting the 15 February conspiracy in 1999, have been remembered.
Kurds organised a commemoration ceremony for Kurdish patriots Sema Alp, Mustafa Kurt, Ahmet Acar and Sinan Karakuş who were murdered in front of the Israeli Consulate in Berlin while protesting the 15 February international conspiracy against Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan in 1999.
The ceremony organised by DESTDAN Women’s Council and Naveda Civaka Kurdistaniyen Azad was held at the scene where the brutal murder was perpetrated on 17 February 1999.
Police prevented people from taking photos at the scene and imposed a restriction on the number of attendees at the event.
The group left a black wreath in front of the Israeli Consulate, chanting ”Murderer Israel”, "Berxwedan jiyane" [Resistance is Life] and "Jin, jiyan, azadî" [Woman, Life, Freedom].
Politician Muharrem Aral addressed the crowd and condemned the violent killing of patriots who “reclaimed their leader, freedom and future”.
Mustafa Karakurt’s wife Kamile Kurt said; “I have come here for 21 years and will continue to do so till the end of my life. I will follow the cause of our martyrs. We hold our head high and we are proud.”
