(en) Czech, afed: Salih Muslim in court - Demonstrations in support of Kurdish policy, Salih Muslim, continue. [machine translation]
Tue, 6 Mar 2018 09:34:22 +0200
Even on Tuesday morning, the Kurds and their friends continued to protest against the
unjustified repression of Salih Muslim, the former president of the United Democratic
Party (PYD), led by the Czech state at the request of a proto-fascist Turkish regime. ----
At ten o'clock in the morning, more than 100 people gathered in front of the Municipal
Court in Prague in Spalena Street. Demonstrations were organized by the Kurds and Kurds
from the Czech Republic and from abroad, and the initiative called No racism! The action
was also supported by members and members of the Anarchist Federation. ---- Though in the
morning there was a cold winter, there was an energetic atmosphere on the spot, and it was
already a long time to hear the constantly chanting of slogans in various languages -
whether in support of Salih Muslim itself, passwords marking the resistance of the YPG and
YPJ Kurdish groups or expressing solidarity with Afrin, precisely in those moments the
Turkish army is attacking.
On the spot are mostly flags of the Kurdish organizations and YPG / YPJ units, as well as
the Antifascist Action or the black-red flag of anarchists.
About eleven o'clock, near the parked car, the heavy-haired men with the helmets and the
batons pulled out, so the Colonel with the arrested politician will probably arrive soon.
As long as the sound of police horns sounds from a distance, heavy crows hit the crowd to
create a passage of approaching cars. In a rather indiscriminate way, they are pushing to
the side, waving telescopic batons and screaming about "repeated calls".
However, the present are not interested in escalating the situation, so apart from a few
bruises and scratches, nothing more serious happens to anyone, and the ripping of feathers
has no more serious consequences for anyone.
The colony with the arrested politician will quickly pass through the open door of the
city court and the police theater for today ends. The law men return back to the van
(which we understand because the outside temperature is around -10 degrees below zero) and
we are impatiently waiting for the court verdict.
Waiting is filled with continuous and loud chanting and singing songs. About half an hour
later, the crowd gets enthusiastic - people are cheering, dancing and crying with joy. We
learn that the Salih Muslim City Court has "released" for "freedom" for now (the
extradition to Turkey will continue, the law is the law).
In addition to dancing and jumping, warm teas can also be warmed up, which is available on
site. Unsurprising joy goes, of course, to send the cops who are complaining that the
fence that is in front of the court building is hanging on banners, but that does not
spoil our mood.
A moment later, Salih Muslim (this time no longer having handcuffs) drove the column from
the courthouse away.
About twelve (we are getting very cold) we get into heat. Today brought a partial victory,
but not a win. The police once again proved that they only "follow orders" and "obey the
laws", whatever they are and the worst. By the side of our Kurdish friends, we will stand
up for every next action that will happen. Our weapon is solidarity. Salih Muslim is not
alone! No one is free until we are free.
