<<Support Kurdish Progressive People in Turkey #cizre>>.<br />
<br />
London, 06/03/2016. Today, thousands of UK's Kurdish people, supported by trade unions, organizations and members of the public, held a march in support and solidarity with the Kurdish people in Turkey, Syria and Iraq and to condemn "the Turkish state's atrocities against the Kurdish civilians in North Kurdistan". From the organisers Facebook page: <<Turkey has launched a war on the 25 million Kurds of south east Turkey ever since the mainly Kurdish political party, the HDP twice won over 12% of the vote in the elections of 2015 and in Syria the Kurdish PYD has led a movement creating a popular progressive democracy in the Rojava region. Rather than accept that sooner rather than later the rights and aspirations of the Kurdish people to autonomy must be met, in Turkey and beyond, the Turkish state has imposed curfews on towns and cities across the region, with tanks on the streets and snipers on the roofs, and nearly 200 people have been murdered by Turkish forces. An all out policy of annihilation is being pursued by Erdogan and the Turkish state. Yet while Turkey is a key NATO ally of the UK and USA and desperate to get into the EU, the UK and international media have said and done nothing to stop this brutality. […]>>. The demonstration started outside the BBC HQ in Portland Place and ended with a rally in Trafalgar Square.<br />
