Turkey’s attack on Afrin sparks more demonstrations
PROTESTS against Turkey’s military offensive on Syria’s Afrin escalated around Britain yesterday.
Further protests took place in Yorkshire, following weekend protests at major rail stations in Cardiff, London and Manchester.
Demonstrators closed off the roads in Westminster, where a speaker announced: “We are sorry for the inconvenience, but people are dying.”
Piccadilly station in Manchester was also occupied as activists jumped onto the tracks, cancelling trains coming in and out of the city.
Former PYD leader Salih Muslim spoke at a meeting by Kurdistan National Congress and the Committee to Protect Afrin on Sunday and said it was “unacceptable” that Turkey was “massacring people in Afrin” with European weapons.
“The Turkish state seeks to finalise its massacres against Armenians, Syriacs and Kurds in the 20th century.”
