Stop Turkey's attack on the Kurdish city of Afrin: Vancouver citizens

We are calling on the international community to stand behind the Kurdish people. Hold Turkey accountable and stop the bombing of Afrin, a Kurdish city in Rojava with a population of 324.000, including 126,000 displaced people according to the United Nations.


Turkey launched an air and ground operation against Afrin last Saturday. Turkey has massed an enormous military force on the Afrin border and President Erdogan has promised to attack the Kurdish-controlled canton with full force, annihilating a peaceful enclave, and putting thousands of civilians and refugees at risk, all in pursuit of its vendetta against the Kurds.

The Kurdish people have endured the loss of thousands of young men and women who joined the YPG, and YPJ women‌s force, to rid the world of ISIS. Canada and the international community have a moral obligation to stand behind the Kurdish people now. We call on PM. Justin Trudeau and the international community to use all their influence and power to prevent this catastrophe and to guarantee Afrin‌s stability and security and prevent further Turkish aggression from within Syria and across the Syrian border.
