Standing Together Against the Turkish Invasion of Kurdistan
At times in which the repressive Erdogan regime in Turkey sends his army – in coordination with the US President Donald Trump – to invade the Kurdish Autonomous Region in Northern Syria (Rojava), we cannot stand idly by.
As citizens of Israel, we know well and from up-close how does it look when a Right-wing government, supported by the United States, initiates a military aggression against an entire people, harming innocent lives, in order to crush its aspirations for a life of freedom and security. As supporters of peace – we stand by the rights of all peoples to independence and justice, in Syria as well as here. We know that ruthless rulers are the ones who declare wars, yet the price is paid by all the peoples in the region.
The brave women and men, fighting in Kurdistan – who have scored victories against ISIS barbarity – are now forced to confront a big and strong army, a member of NATO, that receive US support, while it threatens ethnic cleansing of the Kurdish people. We, Jews and Arabs, will come to the Turkish Embassy in Tel-Aviv to express our support for the struggle to independence and peace in Syria, and our opposition to the foul maneuvers of Erdogan and Trump.
Thursday, October 17th, 11:00AM, in front of the Turkish Embassy, 202 HaYarkon Street, Tel-Aviv.
