Tens of thousands of Kurds demonstrate

cologne - In Cologne about 13,000 Kurds are on their feet to demonstrate against Turkish military intervention in northern Syria. The demonstration would start at 10.00, but was postponed to 12.30. The police stopped the demonstrators because there were flags of the Kurdistan Workers' Party and images of PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan.

It has been forbidden to display such symbols in Germany since 2017 because the PKK has been labeled as a terrorist organization.

The demonstration is organized by Nav-Dem (Democratic Community Center for Kurds in Germany). The organization had counted on 20,000 participants. The police and security services are prepared and want to prevent it from coming to a meeting with pro-Turkish demonstrators.

Approximately five hundred people gathered in Amsterdam on Saturday to demonstrate against the Turkish attack in Syria. The meeting was organized by Federation Kurds in the Netherlands. Many police are present at the demonstration.
