The Turkish state executed 12 Kurdish youths in the city of Kurdish city of Van on 10th January (yesterday). Many Kurdish cities and towns are have been under curfew and siege by the Turkish military and police for months. They are attacking thousands of people with tanks, mortar and snipers. In the past four months at least 162 civilians have been killed according to human rights organisations. State forces are not allowing Kurds to bury their mothers, fathers and children; over 50 bodies are being kept in morgues, in homes and on streets.

The Turkish AKP government and its president Recep Tayyip Erdogan have been supporting ISIS and other jihadist forces to kill Kurds for the last 2 years in Syria. However the Kurds have pushed back and are beating these inhumane forces. Now Turkey is doing its own dirty work itself and trying to oppress and massacre Kurds who want recognition, self-rule and freedom in Turkey. Just like in Rojava (North Syria) the Kurds are also resisting for a secular, democratic and gender-equal society in North Kurdistan (SE Turkey) against the Islamist forces of the Turkish state. Therefore once again the Kurds are fighting not just for themselves but also for the whole of humanity. Jihadists who fought in Syria and travelled from Turkey carried out the Paris attacks; the Kurds are a bulwark against these forces.

Unfortunately western governments are completely silent on the massacre of Kurds because of their economic and military ties with Turkey. The recent agreement Turkey reached with the EU regarding the refugee crisis means Turkey is being given a free hand in exacting genocide on the Kurds. But there is danger of civil war if the Kurdish question is not resolved using peaceful political means. Everyone’s interests will be in danger if this happens and we want to prevent it. Civil war means more bloodshed, more displacement, more poverty, more refugees and more crises. This is why we will be having two demonstrations:

1st DEMO: 11/01/2016 – 1pm in front of the Turkish Embassy: 43 Belgrave Square London SW1X 8PA United Kingdom

2nd DEMO: 11/01/2016 – 6pm in front of the Prime Minister’s Office, 10 Downing St, London SW1A 2AA

As British Kurds:

  • We demand that the UK government criticise and pressure Turkey to stop its human rights abuses against Kurds.
  • We demand that the UK government impose sanctions on Turkey.
  • We ask that you write to your local MP about this issue and pressure them to bring it up in Parliament.
  • We request that you boycott Turkish tourism and products.

    Let me tell you something for the records. Don’t blame Turks, we know we always knew Turks are our Sworn enemy, never doubt that. Blame Massoud Barzani for being ONCE AGAIN the provider of Kurdish suppression by dividing and demoralizing our youth.
    It is and always being Massoud Barzany gang who has put a divide in Kurdish struggle and shot the head-shot to the Kurdish struggle, be it in Eastern Kurdistan as in North East and today Southern Kurdistan and West.
    Ask your older relatives. After Khomeinei’s DAESH took power in Iran and we liberated Kurdistan from Islamic Barbarism in 1979 and our youth stood firm against the Khomeinei’s invasion, it was BARZANI mercinaries who sided with Mullahs and broke the neck of Kurdish resistance. By helping Kurds killing Kurds. That is what these evil gang does. The Mullah’s called him and mam Jalal Political Whores. Once time traitor always traitor. Do not blame Turks, we at least know they hate us. Blame those who put the honorable word “Peshmeraga” in dirt. Sorry, that is a bitter fact. Do not let him manipulate you by use sometimes big words. He and his mercenaries are the main evil in Kurdistan. We have to get ride of him. Pray one of his own dogs releases Kurdistan from his shameful life.
