Video: Stop Turkish military's illegal chemical warfare on Kurdish freedom fighters!

October 21, 2022

Green Left journalist Peter Boyle was one of the speakers at an emergency protest in Sydney on October 19 that called on the Australian government to condemn the Turkish military's continued use of banned chemical weapons against Kurdish freedom fighters in northern Iraq/south Kurdistan.

He said that the recently released video about the terrible last hours of life of two of the 17 latest victims of Turkey’s use of chemical weapons against Kurdish freedom fighters should provoke outrage and immediate action from the international community and the responsible international organisations. However, their silence was shameful and suggested that powerful states could be complicit in this war crime, as they were in the 1988 Halabja massacre of Kurd by the Saddam Hussein dictatorship.
