turkey_protest_06.jpgAs part of two weeks of protests across the globe, the Kurdish-American communities of Southern California held a peaceful protest in front of the Turkish consulate in Los Angeles on Wed Aug 31, 2011. The protest was organized to condemn Turkey's recent bombardment and military operations in Northern Iraq.

It was a lively and passionate assembly with large Kurdish flags and banners. The crowd was a cross-generational gathering with a notable presence of Kurdish youth who had made witty signs such as "Make Dolma, Not War," while others held signs that condemned the killing of innocent children.

The crowd chanted "Turkey out of Kurdistan" and "No more genocide." Kurds from all parts of Kurdistan were present.

A short message was read by a member of the Kurdish youth demanding international pressure on Turkey. A three member delegation delivered a formal statement to a representative of the state department who will deliver this letter to the Turkish consulate.

The group ended the protest by singing the Kurdish National Anthem in unison.
