“I must congratulate the new year, but in world, where on the arrival of spring season, Farkhunda is lynched, the people of Afrin are having blood bath and the suicide bombings leave every in pain and sorrows, there is no room for celebrating Nawruz.”
Selay Ghaffar, Spokesperson of Hambastagi, said:
“The bright history of the Kurdish people is filled with struggle and resistance against religious and non-religious reactionary forces, and after the epic resistance of Kobani, which enriched their experience, they have not sat in silence and took their fate into their own strong hands.”
The protestors had placards in their hands, having pictures of Afrin’s victims and caricatures of Erdogan. They had some placards with texts in Persian and English: “The atrocities of Erdogan’s fascist government in Afrin is war crime!” “Afrin is not alone!” “The silence of UN and the so-called free world against brutalities of Erdogan in Afrin is shameful!” “Defending Afrin is defending humanity!”
