FC Barcelona Basket Fans Protest Turkish Invasion
FC Barcelona Basket fans protested against the Turkish invasion of Rojava during a basketball match against Turkish team Fenerbace Istanbul.
Waving YPJ, YPG and Kurdish flags, fans of the Catalan basketball team protested against the invasion and the complicity of many sporting institutions in the Turkish state’s crimes.
Many Turkish sports teams help produce nationalist propaganda supporting Erdogan’s regime. Similarly, the Basketball Euroleague is sponsored by Turkish Airlines, a company with strong ties to the AKP government.
