(10/08/14 5:33pm)

The students deplore the lack of awareness about this issue in the U.S and wish to inform the student population about the matter. On a flyer they are handing to passers-by, the students declare that they “support Kobani’s spirit of self-defense and call on the international coalition forces and the broader international community to support Kobani immediately.” Watch the video to hear from PhD students Can Evren and David Naderi about their hunger strike and the motivation behind their call for action.
