Members of the IRSP in Belfast and the Kurdish Community supporting the YPJ/YPG joined together at Northumberland Street beside the IRSP sponsored mural to imprisoned PKK founder Abdullah Öcalan, prior to holding a white line picket at Divis Street. We received passing support from motorists and black taxi drivers

Belfast IRSP spokesperson, Alex McGuigan, speaking at the white line picket stated,

“The Kurdish people just like the Irish people have suffered disproportionately from imperialism and fascist religious fundamentalists.  We gathered together together today to commemorate the bravery and sacrifice that the YPJ/YPG and others displayed during the  Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant better known as ISIS/L or Daish Siege of the Canton and city of Kobani, also known as Kobane.  The IRSM, an internationalist revolutionary movement salutes the heroism of the Peoples’ Protection Units known as the YPJ/YPG, and the PKK, the Kurdish Workers Party.  We look further to forging even further links with our Kurdish comrades.”
