Armed militants appeared on the streets of Diyarbakır, Southeastern Turkey tonight (20/10/2014) in a demonstration of combative solidarity with Kobane and in complete defiance of the fascist Turkish government.

The comrades expressed their anger by setting up burning barricades, throwing many molotovs and firing shots in the air. Messages of support for Kobane and denouncing the fascist Turkish state were broadcast via megaphone so all the people could hear. The comrades escaped into the night avoiding capture by Turkish security forces, all in all, a successful display of militant solidarity from deep within the Turkish state that gave hope to many Turkish people living under AKP tyranny and reminds Kobane & whole word that not all Turkish people support the barbaric actions of the criminal Erdogan regime!

Thanks for these impressive photos. I've only been to Turkey once when I stayed for about a week in Istanbul in 2005. I'm not that well up on what is happening in the area you talk about so I'm grateful for your information.

"fascist government" - I suggest you go and do some reading to understand what "fascist " really means.

We suggest you fuck off out of here and keep your big trap shut if you have nothing to add other than smarmy innuendo and fuck all knowledge of the facts.

The number of Turkish people killed in demonstrations in support of the Kurds fighting the ISIL in the Syrian Kurdish city of Kobani has neared 40.

Turkey has been gripped by a series of protests over the past week, a number of which turned violent in different parts of the country after security forces conducted a bloody crackdown on the protesters.

Turkey continues to block any delivery of military, medical or humanitarian assistance into Kobani where the ISIL terrorists are feared to be aiming at massive bloodletting.

Analysts say Ankara, having already won the US green light, plans to let the terrorists seize the Kurdish town of Kobani before sending tanks and troops to fight them in a bid to capture and possibly annex the Syrian territory.

Meanwhile, Press TV has learned that Washington has moved its base from Jordan to Turkey to train radical extremists who are fighting the Syrian government.

On Thursday, Idriss Nassan, the deputy head of Kobani’s foreign relations committee, called for pressuring the Turkish government to open its borders to volunteers and allow delivery of ammunition for the fighters.

Kobani and its surroundings have been under attack since mid-September, with the ISIL militants capturing dozens of nearby Kurdish villages.

The ISIL terror operations have forced tens of thousands of Syrian Kurds to flee into Turkey, which is a stone’s throw from Kobani.
