PCS sends solidarity and support for the National Demonstration for the Kurdish People in Turkey.
As trade unionists it is incumbent upon us to speak out where there is injustice and add our voice against the violent suppression and massacre of the Kurdish communities in South East Turkey and near its borders. We also speak out against the increasing suppression of the right to freedom of expression following the arrest and sacking of Turkish academics critical of the regimes action. Like them we cannot be complicit in this crime by remaining silent, and are proud to join the trade union bloc on 6th March, and call on the UK Government to use what influence they can bring to bear on Turkey to reach a peaceful and lasting resolution of this conflict.
