Solidarity with the Kurdish Community in Edinburgh

The Islamophobia Conference organised by SACC and IHRC in Edinburgh on Saturday 15 December 2018 unanimously agreed the following emergency statement:

"The SACC/IHRC Conference sends a message of solidarity and support to the members of the Kurdish Community in Edinburgh who have suffered home raids and arrests under the UK terrorist legislation. We insist on everyone's rights to non-violent expression of their political view even when this may seem inconvenient to those in power, and want to see Scotland as an especially welcoming place to those who have suffered persecution at the hands of other states."
