BERLIN (Ruptly) — Dozens of people from the Kurdish community marched through Berlin’s Kreuzkolln vicinity on Tuesday in protest against the Turkish presence in southern Kurdistan under the slogan “All together against fascism”.

Protesters rallied at Hermannplatz before heading towards Kottbusser Tor, waving Kurdish flags and banners criticising decisions by the Turkish government under President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, including the “occupation” of the region of Afrin, the withdrawal from the Istanbul Convention on violence against women, and the move to ban the primary pro-Kurdish opposition party, the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP).

Several organisations joined the rally, such as Women Defend Rojava, a campaign to coordinate international resistance in solidarity with women of Northern and Eastern Syria and the Rojava revolution.

The march ended with a display of traditional Kurdish dances at Kottbusser Tor.

  • We should help the Kurds to take power in Turkey and turn the whole country into Kurdistan. The Kurds are Indo-European and can be converted into a European people through education. Turks are unable to become European.

  • This a joke! Kurds European? Kurds are a backward semitic people mixed with blacks from Africa.

  • If you like the Kurds so much, take them all, we’ll give them for free. Good riddance. Europe needs Turkey, Turkey doesn’t need Europe, we are an empire in ourselves.

  • You can’t Europeanise Muslims. It’s not a race matter, it’s a cultural issue. Same problem in Bosnia and Chechnya.
