Beth Redmond, NCAFC National Committee
Student and youth activists will be taking part in the London rally in support of Kobane and Kurdistan on 1 November – to show our support for democratic and left forces, including student and youth movements, in the region fighting ISIS.
We also want to show solidarity with the thousands of students and school students in Turkey who have taken action, against their own government, to support the Kurdish struggle.
The struggle is one of international significance from a feminist’s perspective; whilst fighting for basic and fundamental human rights for women, such as not being sold as objects into slavery, the people on the battlefield at the forefront of the fighting are inspiring women.
They need our support. It is a crying shame how little solidarity the British left is showing the Kurdish people, but we can begin to change that this Saturday.
Please meet us 2pm (1 November) in Trafalgar Square, by the bottom of the steps in front of the National Gallery. Look out for the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts banner.
