Tens of thousands of people in dozens of European cities took to the streets to protest against the Turkish war of aggression in northern Syria under the slogan “Everywhere Afrin, everywhere resistance”. The biggest demonstration for Afrin took place in Cologne on Saturday. While the civilian population continued to be bombed in Afrin, the German police blocked the demonstration due to flags bearing the image of Abdullah Öcalan.
In Amsterdam, some 2000 participants took part in a protest march against the Turkish military invasion. In Bordeaux and Strasbourg each involved nearly 1,000 people in protest actions. Also in Graz in Austria a demonstration took place.
Thousands gathered at a protest rally in Copenhagen. Holger K. Nielsen, a member of the Socialist People’s Party, gave a speech in which he criticized the attack by a NATO state on a people fighting ISIS as unacceptable.
At a rally in Brussels pictures of Abdullah Öcalan and YPG / YPJ flags were shown. Erdoğan was described in chants as a murderer, fascist and dictator.
