The US troop pull out from the Kurdish area of northern Syria in October prompted an immediate invasion by Turkey claiming self-protection and scapegoating Syrian refugees. But this attack on the Kurdish people is part of a long history of Kurdish repression. The Kurds are stateless but live in Syria, Turkey, Iran and Iraq. Their fight for self-determination has also produced a history of treachery by imperial powers offering protection for Kurdish support only to betraying them. Join us for this important discussion.

Speakers:

Gülay Kilicaslan, PhD student at York University, and a member of both the Kurdish Community Center and Rojava Solidarity Collective in Toronto.

Canan Sahin, PhD student at Queens University, a member of the International Socialists, in Canada and her sister organization DSIP, Revolutionary Socialist Worker Party, in Turkey.
