The Kurdish Youth Movement in Syria (T.C.K) organized a demonstration on Saturday in the city of Hanover, Germany. The demonstrators called on the international community to protect the minorities in Syria, including the Kurds.

The Kurdish areas in northern Syria was exposed recently to a series of attacks launched by al-Qaeda linked fighters of Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State in Iraq and Sham ISIS in several cities and villages with a Kurdish majority, including Tel Abyad, Tel Hasel, Tel Eran an other areas. 

Mohammed Nazir, member of the Information Office in the T.C.K, said in a telephone call with ARA News that the movement aimed through Saturday’s demonstration to draw the attention of the international community to the unprecedented developments in Syria’s Kurdish areas.

Nazir insisted that the Movement will continue with organizing demonstrations in different European cities in the coming days in order to put pressure on the international community to intervene and stop the escalating violence across the Kurdish region to protect the Kurds and other minorities in Syria as the extremist groups like Jabhat al-Nusra started attacking them and threatening the civil peace. 

In a reference to a demonstration organized earlier by the T.C.K in Istanbul, Nazir said that that was the first anti-Islamists demonstration being organized by Syrians in Turkey. 

Remarkably, the Kurdish Youth Movement (T.C.K) introduce itself as a youth movement founded after the uprising of Qamishlo/al-Qamishli in 2004. One of the movement’s goals –as pointed out by its members– is to create a bridge between the Kurdish political movement and the Kurdish youth in Syria. The T.C.K held several political, cultural and social activities since its establishment.
