Kurds in Europe are organising demonstrations in many cities to protest ISIS’ siege of Kobani (Northern Syria) and Turkey’s negligence to the massacre of Kurds at its border. The protests in Turkey already claimed 43 lives in the last 10 days, but the political consequences seem to extend to European countries as well.
On the night of 6 October, Kurdish activists briefly occupied the Dutch Parliament which made to the world headlines. I made an interview with two Kurdish activists, Engin and Neslihan, who took part in the occupation to ask what they want from the Dutch and Turkish governments.
