Several protesters took to the streets in Helsinki to protest against extremist organisation ISIS blockade of Ain ​​al-Arabi, also known as Kobane in Kurdish, and Western Kurdistan region.

A dozen protesters led a procession from the parliament building and went to the premises of the European Commission Representation in Finland where a petition was handed to the decision makers.

The protesters, who were mainly Kurds, burnt the ISIS flag and shouted slogans against the extremist organisation.

One protester, Selo Tosun, said he witnessed the atrocities committed by the extremist organisation in Turkey near its border with Syria in which old men and pregnant women were tortured.

“The terrible violence faced by women and children was the reason why I wanted to come to this protest. Rape, abduction and beheading. Terrible,” summed up Nesrin Yilmaz.
