Germany: Pro-Kurdish activists commemorate 'Rojava revolution' with march in Stuttgart

Pro-Kurdish activists took to the streets of Stuttgart on Sunday to commemorate the anniversary of the so-called 'Rojava revolution.' Carrying banners and waving flags with images of imprisoned Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK) leader Abdullah Ocalan, the activists marched through the city as part of a 'global action plan' for the event's eighth anniversary, with several other simultaneous demonstrations taking place internationally and within Germany. July 19 is the date when People's Protection Units (known by their Kurdish acronym YPG) militants first captured the Syrian city of Kobani in 2012, marking the beginning of a de facto autonomous region in northern Syria. Germany has the largest Kurdish population in Europe, with an estimated one million Kurds living in the country.
