After nearly a month of conducting various projects, activities, seminars and demonstrations highlighting the role of combating violence against women in the context of democratization of society, central manifestations are taking place today all across Rojava with the purpose of marking the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
Statement by YPJ Headquarters Command, March 19, 2018.
We don’t necessarily agree with everything in this article. But we reblog it because we think there are some important points in this piece.
Shortly after 09:00am today the guesthouse of resistance in Meuchefitz (Wendland/ county of Lüchow-Dannenberg) was entered with a search warrant. The search warrant was issued on the second of February and was targetted against one accused. A group of one hundred masked cops with machine guns confiscated a banner that was hanging at the front of the building.
After cops stopped and dissolved a demonstration in solidarity with Afrin in Cologne last week, a demonstration in Dortmund was banned today. Like in Hamburg today, many YPG and YPJ flags were confiscated.
German police banned a demonstration against state terrorism in Turkey. Originally the demo was planned to take place on April 8th in Mannheim, Germany. Its not the first time German police banned a demonstration against Erdogan’s terror regime.
