Child refugees join city protest

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - PUZZLES -

SYR­IAN Kur­dish child refugees joined the lat­est protest in Dundee against Turk­ish in­ter­ven­tions in the Mid­dle East.

The demon­stra­tion in City Square, or­gan­ised by Scot­tish Sol­i­dar­ity with Kur­dis­tan, was the sec­ond in re­cent weeks and co­in­cided with sim­i­lar gath­er­ings in Glas­gow and Lon­don.

Or­gan­iser Sarah Glynn said the group was call­ing on the UK Govern­ment to con­demn the on­go­ing “ag­gres­sive” in­va­sion of the north­west­ern Syr­ian re­gion of Afrin by Turk­ish forces.

She added: “There is a Kur­dish say­ing, born of bit­ter ex­pe­ri­ence — ‘no friends but the moun­tains’.

“We want to show the peo­ple of Afrin that they also have friends here in Scot­land.”
