On the 3rd of July, three activists, one who is a member of the Kurdish community in Wales and a Bristol Kurdish Solidarity Network member, another BKSN member, and a member of Anarchist Federation, are facing charges of Aggravated Trespass (“failing to leave land”) for protesting at the Cardiff Arms Fair (DPRTE) against weapons sales to the dictatorial Turkish state.
By arming Turkey, the UK government and companies like BAE and Airbus are complicit in human rights abuses in Afrin. As reportedly recently in The Independent, Turkey have hired former ISIS fighters for the invasion of Afrin. There are regular reports of kidnapping, rape and torture.
Please come down to speak out against the UK government’s support for fascist regimes and their attacks on the people of Kurdistan!
