Following on from the prosecution of Shilan Ozcelik, a second British YPG/YPJ volunteer is now facing charges for allegedly joining the fight against ISIS. Aiden Aslin is due to appear for a bail hearing on the 5th of April at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court, where a decision will be made about whether to prosecute him, and Nottingham Kurdish solidarity campaigners are calling for people to turn up from 12 to show support. There’s a lot of arguments to be had about how we should understand the recent actions of the Kurdish movement’s leadership and how anarchists should relate to forces like the PYD in Syria as well as the ongoing revolt inside Turkey, but solidarity with anyone being targeted by the British state for fighting against ISIS should be a pretty basic starting point. If signing petitions is something you do, there’s one you can sign up to here, but either way it’d be good to show up on the 5th if you can make it, or let other people know about it if you can’t. Fuck ISIS, fuck the cops and the CPS, long live international solidarity.
