Anger at a massacre by the Turkish government led 500 people to march through Stoke Newington, north London, last Saturday.

Different Turkish and Kurdish left organisations combined to protest against what is seen as a major escalation in attacks on the left by the Turkish state, which is a member of Nato and is applying to join the European Union.

Leaders of the Maoist Communist Party (MKP) were among 17 members killed when Turkish government forces ambushed a group on their way to a party congress.

Helicopters backed by 1,000 troops attacked the group on 16 June in the eastern province of Tunceli.
