Wounded children in Tel-Rifaat massacre: We were playing suddenly we bombed
“Are we terrorists, what did we do to them so that they bombed us and killed our friends? Now they are bombing us here too. We want to live in peace,” said the children who were injured in the Turkish massacre in Tel Rifaat.
Intent on Genocide and destroying the democratic feminist Rojava the Turkish president arrived in Buckingham Palace for a NATO summit, just hours after committing another massacre of 10 civilians, mostly kids going home after school.. Nobody in the Palace is so rude as to mention the bodies of innocent children.
Erdogan then labeled his victims as terrorists, yet again, and again openly threatened his fellow presidents unless they agreed with him and continued their criminal deals.
What a SHAME that the world has come to this.. that an obvious genocidal illegal invasion and ethnic cleansing be condoned, flagrant war crimes against people who have NEVER attacked Turkey. Indeed the US NATO leaders refused in the UN (along with Russia) to even condemn the latest invasion.
Every time the neo fascist/islamic AKP regime gets away with a clear War Crime the ultra nationalists gain strength and plan further outrages.
Next on the list will be the takeover of the rest of Rojava, plus Manbij, Raqqa, Deir as Zor, and eventually Aleppo, expelling the population. The new conquests will again be settled with the growing Turkish paid Islamic armies … ISIS crazies, Al Qaeda killers, Uyghur fanatics and pro Turkey ‘refugees’.
This along with Turkification policies as part of the ‘Ottoman Empire’, as repeatedly promised by President Erdogan and already happening in occupied Afrin, Al Bab, Jarablus, Azaz, Cyprus, etc.
So the authoritarian world powers connive to carve up Syria, bombing and shelling children, mostly refugees from the Afrin invasion, with NATO planes from a NATO airbase, paying terrorists to again expel, murder, loot and rape the peaceful progressive population, in the name of ‘fighting terrorism’.
Here in ‘the West’ we can at least put pressure on our criminal leaders
Call for international day of action on 14th December!
Take the streets, every day is good to demonstrate!
Protest Turkish Airlines and other supporters of the Turkish State!
Shut down weapons manufacturers!
Show solidarity! Together against fascism and patriarchy!
