Activist and Democratic Kurdish Society Congress Europe (KCDK-E) Co-chair Yuksel Koc issued a short statement on May 8, the anniversary of Nazi Germany’s surrender in the World War II, the bloodiest war in human history.
Koc spoke to the ANF and said: “Today is the 74th anniversary of the peoples’ resistance defeating racist policies of war. We remember all who resisted, all who paid the price in the name of humanity. They have shown once again that fascism is destined to fail every time.”
Koc pointed out that the racist Nazi mindset continues in different forms today: “Like the Hitler regime was defeated 74 years ago, today the AKP-MHP fascism will also fail. Our call for all KCDK-E constitutents is: An important blow was dealt to the fascism in our country with the resistance against ISIS. They have been dealt a taste of defeat. Today we can defeat AKP-MHP fascism with the spirit of resistance and the joint struggle of the peoples. Joint struggle has always defeated fascism. The peoples will prevail. Fascism will lose.”
