A group of the terrorist organization PKK held a march into central London on Wednesday.

Shouting anti-Turkish slogans, the protesters marched from the Highbury and Islington station to Leicester Square under a police cordon.

The group of around 50 men and women carried terror group head Abdullah Ocalan's pictures and various PKK symbols and flags.

Police were observed to have walked alongside the marchers who disrupted the traffic as well.

The UK’s Supreme Court last January upheld a ruling against a man who carried the terrorist organization’s flag in a similar protest in 2018.

London police arrested such individuals in recent protests.

In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Türkiye, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Türkiye, the US, and the EU – has been responsible for the deaths of over 40,000 people. The YPG/PYD is PKK's Syrian offshoot.
