Kurds and their friends will rally in Berlin on 18 November against the ban on the PKK’s activities in Germany, which was issued on 26 November 1993 at the request of Turkey.

On 18 November, a long-term planned demonstration against the ban on the PKK’s activities in Germany, which was issued thirty years ago, will take place in Berlin. The “Lift the PKK ban – strengthen democracy!” campaign is mobilising nationwide for the demonstration under the slogan “Lift the PKK ban”. As Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has announced that he will be visiting Berlin at the end of next week, the call for the demonstration has been updated to include a protest against the Turkish nationalist and Islamist influence of the Erdoğan regime. Buses will be travelling to the demonstration in Berlin from all over Germany.

The Confederation of Kurdistan Communities in Germany (KON-MED) released a statement calling for strong participation in the demonstration.

Defining the PKK as a resistance and freedom movement of the Kurdish people against state terror and colonialism, KON-MED condemned the PKK ban in Germany which was issued on 26 November 1993 at the request of Turkey and due to the close political and economic relations between the two countries. As a result, numerous Kurds were sentenced to imprisonment and fines.

“The German state must not submit to blackmail by Erdoğan. The demonstration against the PKK ban in Berlin will therefore also be a signal that Erdoğan is not welcome. Let us gather in Berlin on 18 November to respond to Erdoğan against the policies of war he has been pursuing for years. On this basis, we invite the patriotic Kurdish people, as well as all democratic, socialist circles and all those who defend peace against war to Berlin in order for this unlawfulness to come to an end. All our federations, councils and constituents should mobilise all their means,” said KON-MED.
