(en) Czech, afed: Salih Muslim in court - Demonstrations in support of Kurdish policy, Salih Muslim, continue. [machine translation]

Date 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.
