Saturday, October 19, 4pm. Establish a no-fly zone now! Turkey get out of Syria! After getting the go-ahead from Donald Trump, Turkey has invaded Rojava in northern Syria all along the border, supported by Islamist militia gangs. Death, destruction and atrocities are piling up.
For seven years Rojava has been a beacon of democracy, feminism, and ethnic and religious pluralism. The Kurdish-majority Rojava defence forces spearheaded the struggle against the barbaric Islamic State at a terrible cost (11.000 dead and 21,000 badly wounded). Turkey’s racist, Kurdophobic Erdogan regime wants to crush this inspiring example lest it spread across the border.
There will be a range of speakers including Michele Harding, mother of YPG fighter Reece Harding, who was martyred fighting IS in 2015.
The Rojava Revolution needs our solidarity as never before. Please come on Saturday and spread the word to your friends and contacts.
State Library, 328 Swanston St, City. Organised by the Kurdish Democratic Community Centre of Victoria & Australians for Kurdistan.
