Aiden Aslin is accused of joining the YPG, one of the Kurdish forces that has had great victories fighting against ISIS. He has been on bail since February and is expecting a hearing on whether he will be charged or not on the 20th of July. The bail conditions severely impede Aiden’s life.
We stand in solidarity with Aiden Aslin in this struggle and call for mobilisation to pressurise the authorities to lift the bail conditions and not bring any charges against Aiden. The Nottingham Kurdish Solidarity Campaign has called for a protest to be held outside the court from 1pm on the 20th of July.
We consider that it outrageous that anyone would be facing such charges if they have fought with YPG, which is not a proscribed organisation and which is taking action to protect people living in the Kurdish area of Rojava.

The Protest starts in front of Bridewell Police Station Magistrates Building, Carrington Street, Nottingham UK, NG21EE.
Who’s decision is it to take this action to bring Aiden to Court, and why?
