Marching in Ankara

Some 25,000 people demonstrated in Ankara, Turkey, last Saturday against military attacks on Kurds in northern Iraq.

Yildiz Önen, a leading member of Turkey’s BAK anti-war coalition, said, “Iraq is on fire as it is. Any Turkish attack will only make things worse and spread the conflict.

“It will mean more death and destruction. We want the occupying forces out of Iraq – and a peaceful solution to the Kurdish problem in Turkey.”
