On Sunday Oct 6th, Trump gave Turkey the green light to attack Northeast Syria, thus abandoning the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic forces (SDF), which played an indispensable role in the fight against ISIS, and opening the way for the ethnic cleansing of the region that Erdogan has openly prepared. On Wed Oct 9, Turkey launched a full-scale invasion, deploying ground troops and conducting airstrikes on both civilian areas and military targets. This escalation will lead to nothing but destabilization and destruction in Syria, and increased repression and autocracy within Turkey. It’s not only in our security interest but a moral imperative that we stand up to it.
Let’s come together to:
- Demand a No Fly Zone over Rojava
- Oppose Trump’s capitulation to Erdogan
- Show support and solidarity with the people of Northeast Syria
Union Sq, Post/Powell corner, 12-2 pm.
