There is a gathering of Leicester Against War every Friday 5.30-6.30pm at the Leicester Clock Tower, sometimes with a theme. This coming Friday the theme is Stop the War on Kurds around the issue of what Governments are doing to the Kurds by abusing them directly – Turkey/Syria; using them as a political football – everyone especially Russia and America now; and excluding them/ denying them a voice – all the above + UK, UN and others for example in the talks about Syria. We need to ensure that Kurds have a real voice on the international stage Continue reading Leicester Kurdish Solidarity Campaign – Action

Solidarity Campaign and You

What does this have to do with you? If attacks on the Kurds stopped,  the Middle East would settle down, people could rebuild their lives and the world will be a better place to live – for everyone.

Leicester/shire Kurdish Solidarity Campaign

Map of KurdistanAre you interested in helping to building a Leicester/shire Kurdish Solidarity Campaign?

The Turkish State  is killing Kurds both inside Turkey, and in Rojava/Syria directly and through al-Nursa and ISIS.  Meanwhile Europe tiptoes around because it wants Turkey to keep on taking refugees,  and Turkey teeters around whether it wants to join EU or not,  but it is also a NATO ally, so while European countries do not deal robustly with this behaviour by its ‘friend’, the Kurds are dying – a political football again.

We can learn together about what is happening and take our issues out on the streets to our neighbours and to our MPs,  and we can join with others to get our voice heard – because this is immoral.
