I just pulled out of a conference in Turkey in protest at the invasion of Northern Syria’s Kurdish region

Summary:
It is with profound regret, and after much reflection, that I am pulling out as a speaker at an interesting and worthy international conference organised by TRT World in Istanbul on 21st October. I do so in protest of the Turkish armed forces’ invasion of Northern Syria. The ongoing invasion is not only an assault on Syria’s Kurdish forces that almost single-handedly, and heroically, defeated ISIS on the ground but, also, an assault on Turkish democrats and their campaign to check the creeping authoritarianism of the Turkish government. Yanis Varoufakis will be taking part in "New Horizons for Emerging Powers: Co-operation or Competition?" at #TRTWorldForum on 21 Oct. Visit our website:
