Photos: Hands off Rojava rallies held across Australia

Members of the Kurdish community and supporters held rallies across Australia on October 19 and 20 to demand Turkey end its invasion of Rojava, a predominately Kurdish region in north-eastern Syria.

Protesters also called on the Australian government to speak out in opposition to the invasion.

On October 9, after many months of military build up and threats, the Turkish military began a new invasion of Rojava. Despite agreeing to ceasefire after negotiations with the United States, Turkey has continued to carry out military actions in Syria.
