Solidarity with Rojava

A message from the Easton Cowgirls…

“We’re the Easton Cowgirls and we stand here tonight in solidarity with the Kurdish people and Internationals that are currently in Northern Syria which is under invasion from the Turkish forces. We firstly want to send a message to our friends that are over there volunteering and tell them that we are thinking about them every day, we’re scared for them but we are immensely proud of what they are doing and we give them all of our support. We would also like to send a message to the UK government asking them to stop arming Turkish Forces. They’ve put out a message to say they are going to put a ban on sales but it’s not enough. They are still exporting arms now and will be for the next few months. So we are asking them to stop. And finally, we would like to ask all our friends and family and supporters to stand up for Rojava. Talk to your MPs, go on demonstrations and boycott Turkey. Thank you very much”


This month the Turkish occupation army and its Islamist allies began their long prepared war of aggression against the liberated areas of Northern Syria. Turkey promotes this as a military operation aimed at securing the boarder and establishing a so called “peace corridor”, but the fact is that the Turkish army and Islamic mercenaries under its command are concerned with nothing less than the occupation of the mostly Kurdish populated area along the Turkish-Syrian border. The regime in Ankara speaks of the “fight against terrorism” and emphasizes that their war of aggression is not about the war on the civilian population, but indiscriminate bombing of civilian settlements, looting and mass deportations of hundreds of thousands of people, arbitrary executions and the brutal abduction of hundreds of civilians speak a different language. The further the war against northern Syria progresses, the more it becomes clear, what Erdogan is really about, namely ethnic cleansing through the violent expulsion of millions of people and the long-term demographic change of the entire region.
