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
Maybe people could offer suggestions for posters, and bring some music for some Kurdish dancing – maybe wear Kurdish clothes
‘Stop the War on Kurds’ ‘By Turkish State’ ‘By Syrian regime’ ‘Give Kurds a Voice’ ‘UK Government must support Kurds’
Join us in our activities: We launched ourselves on 24 March 2016. We have a Facebook page – Leicester Kurdish Solidarity Campaign, and there will be news on this webpage: http://leicesterkurdishsolidaritycampaign.org.uk/. We welcome ideas, organisers etc. etc.
