Rome, 01/11/2019. Today, to mark the 5th World Kobane Day (1.), tens of thousands of people marched from Piazza della Repubblica to Via dei Fori Imperiali. The aim of the demo was to protest against the ongoing Turkish unilateral military intervention in North-East Syria, and in support & solidarity with the Kurdish People of Rojava (275,000+ already displaced).<br />
UIKI, Comunità Curda in Italia, Rete Kurdistan urging to (2.):<br />
-Stop the war & withdrawl of Turkish Troops from North-East of Syria<br />
-Establish a NO-Fly-Zone under the aegis of UN & International Community with deployement of an interposition force<br />
-Stop military & diplomatic cooperation of Italy & the EU with Turkey<br />
-Create a humanitarian corridor to evacuate wounded people<br />
-Release Ocalan & all the political prisoners held in Turkish prisons<br />
"Turkey will soon be moving forward with its long-planned operation into Northern Syria [Operation Peace Spring]. The US Armed Forces will not support or be involved in the operation, and US forces, having defeated the ISIS territorial 'Caliphate', will no longer be in the immediate area" - White House's statement, 07.10.19. With this move President Trump has allegedly abandoned his Kurdish allies (Syrian Democratic Forces, SDF are Kurdish-led Forces) of the war against IS (aka ISIS, Daesh, Islamic State) and, with his support to the Turkish invasion of North-East Syria, he could widen the eight-year Syrian conflict. Conversely, Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said the operation has the aim to create a "safe zone" cleared of Kurdish militias which will also house Syrian refugees. The EU, numerous Nations across the planet, the UN have expressed concern and condemned this unilateral decision, urging Turkey to end its offensive.<br />
