Defend Afrin, stop Turkish Attack

BBC to Downing St, London. Sat 27 Jan 2018


 I met the march which had started from the BBC at Oxford Circus

 'Stop Turkish Aggression on Kurds in Afrin'

 

 Many carried flags or wore them for the YPG and other Kurdish groups

 and there were Kurdistan flags, and those showing the national Kurdish leader, Abdullah Ocalan, in Turkish jail since 1999

 'Stop Arms Sales to Turkey - Stop War Against Kurds'

 'StopTurkish Terrorism'

 

 

 'Defend Afrin for Women's Liberation'. The Rojava constitution enshrines equality

 Many of the women on the protest wore traditional headdresses and scarves in the Kurdish colours

 

 'Stop Turkish State's War on Kurds'

 'UK Stop Supporting Turkish State/ISIS'

 'Long LIve The Kurdish People's Resistance'

 'Stop the attacks on Afrin - No Arms Sales to Turkey!'

 

 

 Many gave 'V' for Victory signs for the camera as I photographed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 'Hands Off Afrin - Hands Off Rojava'

 A man wearing a costume for Kurdistan

 'Defend People of Afrin' - The Alevi Federation banner

 'Stop Killing our Children - Afrin'

 The red flag with the red star in a yellow circle with the green ring is the official flag of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK)

 An advert for Turkish Airlines as the front of the protest goes through Piccadilly Circus.
It stopped appearing just after I took this picture
