Statement of Kurdish refugees starting a hunger strike in solidarity with Afrin
On Sunday 18/3, the army of the fascist Turkish state, along with FSA soldiers and the jihadists, entered the resisting city of Afrin. What followed was looting, tortures and decapitations of Kurdish fighters, and the expulsion of 200,000 civilians, the majority of whom are in the surrounding mountains deprived of food and water, physically and mentally injured by the orgy of violence and brutality.
We, as Kurdish political refugees living in Greece, declare that our soul and our mind are with our brothers and sisters in Afrin.
We ask for the solidarity of the Greek people and we start today 19/3 a hunger strike in front of the Greek Parliament, demanding from the Greek government to finally take a position; the Greek government, which unfortunately, like its allies in the EU and NATO, has remained neutral and unmoved in front of these developments.
The people of Afrin, our people, will always be free
Kurdish hunger strikers, March 19, 2018.
