"People are killed, kids and women. [President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan's governmental forces use heavy weaponry, tanks and artilleries to attack in the residential areas in Kurdistan. We gather here for three days to bring attention of the EU and UN and to urge them to stop this war conduct massacre of Erdogan's in Kurdistan," Delsha Osman said.
According to Osman, similar events are taking place on Monday in France’s Strasbourg and in several cities in Sweden.
"There is a need for international solidarity in order to halt Erdogan's forces from attacking Kurds' cities and to end curfews in the Kurdish districts… Kurds in these areas are lacking food and water, medication and free passage out of the city to the hospitals," Osman stressed.
In January, Amnesty International said that tight security rules and cuts to services in Turkey’s Kurdish-populated areas were threatening the lives of some 200,000 residents. More than 150 civilians are estimated to have been killed during security operations in Kurdish territories under curfew, the watchdog said.
