Civil disobedience outside the CoE headquarters denounces Turkish chemical attacks
Civil disobedience action outside the Council of Europe headquarters in Strasbourg protests against the international silence and inaction against Turkey’s crimes in Kurdistan.
A group of Kurdish activists have staged a civil disobedience action outside the Council of Europe (CoE) headquarters in Strasbourg, France on Thursday.
Activists from the Kurdish youth movements TCŞ and TekoJIN (Revolutionary Youth Movement and Movement of Combative Young Women) protestthe international silence towards the Turkish chemical attacks against Kurdish guerrilla troops. According to reports, a group has entered the building.
Protests continue increasingly following the latest reports on the intensified use of chemical weapons by the Turkish army in Kurdistan. Kurds and their friends have been taking to the streets all around the world to denounce the invading Turkish state's crimes against the guerrilla forces in southern Kurdistan (northern Iraq) in the wake of the images published by ANF on October 18, showing two PKK (Kurdistan Workers' Party) members suffering from a chemical attack in Iraq's Kurdistan Region.
The main demand of the worldwide protests is an independent investigation by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) in the face of the repeatedly exposed but persistently ignored images and reports from the ground.
