Germany: 20,000 Kurds Protest Against Islamic State

From Stratfor

Around 20,000 Kurdish immigrants protested against the Islamic State in Dusseldorf, Germany, on Oct. 11, police said, ABC News reported. Police said the demonstration in the western German city was peaceful, while similar protests in other cities turned violent last week when Kurds clashed with supporters of the Islamist movement. The demonstrations come as the Islamic State continues its campaign in places like the Syrian city of Kobani. Roughly 1 million Kurds live in Germany, most of who immigrated in the 1960s when Germany was recruiting guest workers from Turkey.
