Minute’s silence for Afrin martyrs in Swedish Parliament


A minute’s silence was held in the Swedish Parliament for the people who lost their lives in Afrin.

In yesterday’s session in the Swedish Parliament where the Turkish state’s attacks and massacres against Afrin were discussed, a minute’s silence was observed for the people who lost their lives in Afrin.

Left Party and Greens MPs who took the matter to the parliament’s agenda through written inquiries wore yellow, red and green Kurdistan scarves to the session. Left Party MP Amineh Kakabaveh gave a scarf as a present for the Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström.

After Margot Wallström responded to the inquiries, Jabar Amin took the stand and before he started his speech, invited the parliament to a moment’s silence in memory of the women, children and all the innocent people who lost their lives in the Turkish state attacks against Afrin.

Guests, MPs and Wallström stood up for the minute’s silence, as security guards warned the guests to sit back down, which they refused to do until the minute was over.
