Turkish regime’s mass arrests of pro-peace people

This video from Germany says about itself:

27 January 2018

5,000 protesters took to the streets of Cologne on Saturday, in a nationwide demonstration to condemn Turkey’s ongoing Operation ‘Olive Branch’ against the Kurdish enclave of Afrin in northern Syria.

Protesters marched through the city and held banners reading “We are all Afrin” and “In Afrin, humanity will be defended”, amongst others.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

More than 300 arrests in Turkey after criticism on social media

Today, 15:14

Turkey has arrested more than 300 people who have criticized the Turkish army offensive in northwestern Syria on social media . The arrests have been made since Operation ‘Olive branch’ began ten days ago. Among the arrested people are politicians, journalists and activists.

The Turkish authorities warn that anyone who criticizes the military operation or distributes [so called] fake news about it will be persecuted. …

The Paris-based journalistic interest organization Reporters Without Borders spoke of a “witch hunt” on critics.

Inside Afrin, the true victims of Turkey’s invasion of northern Syria are revealed – refugees, babies, women and children. Exclusive: In part three of his Inside Syria series, and the first Western media report from Afrin since the start of the Turkish offensive, Robert Fisk shows just how ‘surgical’ is the attack on ‘terrorists’ in Operation Olive Branch: here.
