Stop War on Kurds: Thousands March in London.
Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of Britain’s capital to express their indignation with the Ankara’s military operation against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) which heaps suffering on the Kurdish minority both in Turkey and beyond its borders.
The protest, organized by an activist group known as Stop War on Kurds, took place in central London on Sunday. People gathered at BBC Broadcasting House and then left for Trafalgar Square to start the rally.
The protest action was triggered by the Turkish crackdown on the Kurdish minority which participants said goes “unreported in the UK press.” The group is “demanding the UK govt puts pressure on Turkey to stop these attacks,” a statement on the Stop War on Kurds Facebook page said.
The Tendance feels this of great importance and only the fact that the train service from Ipswich to London was undergoing ‘works’ over the weekend which would turn a 1 hour journey into a 2 hour plus nightmare, stopped our attendance.
Congratulations to the organisers!
