Comments Off on Vigil for Kobane 31 July 2015, London

2015 July 31 Vigil for KobaneAn evening vigil will be held for the 300+ innocent civilians massacred by disguised ISIS fighters last month, Thursday 25th June to be exact. It will also be a vigil for the hundreds of thousands who have lost their lives in the fight to liberate Syria from terrorists, from regimes, and to protect the hard-fought for revolutions.

ISIS, who have supposedly sprung out of nowhere, are not far removed from our government, in fact the UK’s allies such as Saudi-Arabia, Qatar and Israel, play a huge role in facilitating ISIS. No two play a larger role in facilitating ISIS than Turkey and Saudi Arabia. No regime is as brutally massacring fighters and civilians as is Syria.

Turkey, as a NATO ally, is ensuring ISIS is equipped and capable of fighting all revolutionary fighters across Rojava (Northern Syria), for geopolitical playmaking, and has blockaded the delivery of aid to Syrian refugees from Rojava. Refugees, women and children, have been turned back and/or killed at the border by the Turkish army. Turkish police are gunning down Kurdish youth in the street. Read more
