Hundreds of protesters marched from the underground station 'Nollendorfplatz' to 'Uhlandstrasse' in Berlin, Wednesday, protesting Turkish military operations against Kurdish militias in Afrin, northern Syria. One of the protesters named Bahoz Servan said that the protesters were aiming to put «pressure» on the German government to «stop the collaboration with Turkey». On January 20, Turkish... Еще President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the beginning of the military operation 'Operation Olive Branch' against the Kurdish YPG militia. Turkey views the YPG, which is active in northern Syria, as an extension of the banned militant group the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), whose leader is Abdullah Öcalan. Germany outlawed the PKK in 1993 and recognises the organisation as a terrorist group. The German government has since banned PKK symbols including flags and portraits of the founder of the party, Abdullah Ocalan.
