During a demonstration protesting the recent attacks in Zap, Metina, Avashin and Shengal, the police attacked and arrested peaceful demonstrators
LONDON – After begging of the renewed operation by the fascist Turkish state against the free mountains in Kurdistan, the people took to the streets in the diaspora in Europe, condemning another invasion of the territory and attacks against the freedom fighters.
In London, with the initiative of the Youth Commune Ş. Firaz Dag, hundreds of people took to the streets in protest against the attacks in all parts of Kurdistan.
During the demonstration tSlogans such as “Down with Turkish fascism”, “Down with betrayal”, “Bijî berxwedana gerila”, “Kurdistan will be a graveyard for fascism” were chanted by activists. Ercan Akbal and Yalçın Tetwan from the Kurdish People’s Assembly, KCDK-Bashur Representative Heval Şiwan and Viyan Silemani on behalf of the TCŞ addressed the crowd. They said: “The genocidal vile Turkish fascism will never succeed. If the KDP thinks they will get results with the line of betrayal, they will be proved wrong in the mountains of Kurdistan. The PKK is the hope of these people. The KDP, which is on the line of betrayal against the Kurdish people, will take its place in the dirty pages of history together with this fascist regime.
Police attacked the peaceful marching
After the speeches, the crowd marched towards Finsbury Park. While the people were marching, a group of fascists made a provocation at Turnpike Line.
When the mass reached Haringey, the police tried to stop the Kurdish youths and eventually attacked the crowd. While many people had their share of police violence in the events, 5 people, including Yeni Özgür Politics employee Renan Gündoğdu, were detained. After the arrests, the mass closed the road to traffic.
Some protesters were arrested by the police and taken under custody. Until the moment they were not released.
