The Belgium government have organized a raid on the ROJ TV, which has spectators from all four parts of Kurdistan as well as the kurds living abroad, and made an operation agaınst the KNK. This attack, which has been directed against the identity and free will of the people of Kurdistan, is a continuation policy of Europe to sacrifice the Kurdish people for their political and economical interests. We condemn the state terror against the ROJ TV, which is targeted the voice of the kurdish people as well as the people and their cultures in the region, the KNK, and other Kurdish institutions. The Government of Belgium’s detention of the Chairman of the Kongra-Gel, which is the Parliament of Kurdish People, the other kurdish politicians and diplomats in this operation, is an attack nothing more than to offend and defamation of the Kurdish people. The Government of Belgium must put an end to these attacks and should release those detained immediately.
This attack, which has been developed in parallel with the political genocide performed in Northern Kurdistan by the Turkish state and the government of the AKP, has been a step to encourage the Turkish state to continue its attacks against the Kurdish people.
In the face of this act of terror ‘against the freedom of press’ and ‘right to receive news’ of the Kurdish people, our people and their friends should not, in any way, stay silent.
The responsibility of this attack, which has been carried on the basis of the request of the Turkish state in the Center of NATO of Brussels, belongs to the Belgium government and those powers behind it.
In the face of this hostile attack against the institutions of the Kurdish people, all the kurdish people living in Europe should come together in Brussels in order to increase their protests against these unfair, unjust and anti-democratic attacks and ask to an end to these attacks.
The kurdish people in all four parts of Kurdistan and wherever they are should upgrade their protests against this attack. And, we also call upon Kurdish Press to protest this, and to be in solidarity with ROJ TV.
In the face of this unjust and aggressive tendencies, We call upon all European democratic forces and intellectuals not to remain silent and should act against it.
The Presidency of the Executive Council of the KCK
