(en) Czech, afed: Freedom for Salih Muslim! - Kurds and anti-authoritarians have protested against the arrest of Kurdish politicians, and other actions are under way [machine translation]

Date Sun, 4 Mar 2018 11:43:33 +0200

On Sunday, the Czech police detained, following a request by Turkey and the Interpol section of the former co-chair of the Kurdish United Democratic Party (PYD) Salih Muslim. Against this, Turkey has been charged with terrorism, as well as the other dozens of people associated with the Kurdish struggle for independence and YPG militia, or YPJ. That is, the Turkish authoritarian regime considers it part of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which it termed terrorist. ---- Because it is possible that the Czech state will want to issue a Muslim on the basis of an official request to Turkey, where the draconian punishments for perpetrated crimes are threatened, most Kurds against the prosecution of the former PYD co-president were protesting in Prague on the second day of the twenty-sixth. This is supported by a small group of local anti-fascists and anti-authoritarians.

The action itself started quite unexpectedly before the District Court for Prague 1 in the Fruit Market after ten o'clock in the morning. About one hundred and fifty protesters arrived on the site, carrying several banners, many Kurdish flags, PYDs and, for example, Yugoslav militia symbols forbidden in Germany. The Kurds took care of the thunderstorming of various passwords aimed at the Turkish autarch Erdogan or calling for the liberation of Salih Muslim.

After several speeches, the crowd set off on the streets of Prague, despite the frost. Although accompanied by the police, including a heavy-load delivery, the procession passed without any problem with almost constant chanting and with flags flying across the Štefánik Bridge and then to Letna to the Ministry of the Interior.

The demonstrators surrounded the barriers to the entrance to the building and continued to chant. Even during the winter, the dynamic and energetically charged atmosphere did not lose its strength, so some people, after the end of the event, went to the Ministry of Justice.

While the deputy ministry, Petr Jäger, was willing to act during the afternoon with the protestors, he told them only that the Muslim would most probably have a court tomorrow to decide on his possible detention.

Kurds and local activists, including anarchists, will continue in solidarity actions right there - at the Municipal Court in Spalena Street. There is a meeting at ten in the morning. We can only recommend warm clothes and a thermos with tea.
