Petition Defend the Kurds and stop the Turkish military invasion of northern Syria!
The British Government must call on Turkey and the USA to halt a Turkish military invasion that would allow a genocide against the Kurdish people - the very people who have lost over 11,000 fighters defeating ISIS over the past 5 years. We call on the government to do all it can to stop this.
On Sunday October 6th, the White House released a statement saying President Trump and Turkey's Erdogan had spoken by phone and that Turkey's military operation into northern Syria would commence.
If Turkey's military action along its Syrian border goes ahead, there will be more bloodshed, the re-emergence of ISIS and it would be an act of betrayal (bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-49960973) and a direct assault on Kurdish rights and freedoms. Find out more at https://riseup4rojava.org/
