Athens, Greece: Kurdish Political Refugees Begin Hunger Strike in Syntagma Square for Afrin


On Sunday, March 18th, the army of the fascist Turkish State along with their jihadist FSA proxies entered the resisting town of Afrin. This was followed by looting, torture, beheadings of Kurdish fighters and the expulsion of 200,000 civilians, the majority of whom are now in the mountains, cut off from food and water, wounded physically and mentally from the orgy of violence and brutality.

As Kurdish political refugees who live in Greece, we declare that right now, our souls and our minds are with our brothers and sisters in Afrin.

We ask for solidarity from the Greek people as we start our hunger strike today on March 19th at Syntagma Square, opposite the Greek Parliament, demanding that the Greek government finally take a stand, unfortunately as allies of the EU and NATO, they have remained unmoved and uninvolved in recent developments.

The people of Afrin, our people, will be forever free.
