The protesters from various organisations and nationalities (Kurdish, Armenian, Turkish, Arabs) expressed their support with the Kurdish freedom fighters defending the city against what they called barbaric attacks by the ISIS. They also accused the Turkish and US governments as well as other countries in the region as terrorists for supporting the ISIS in terms of logistics, weapons and finance.
