Re-blogged from Dear Kitty. Some Blog. According to The Guardian, Shilan Ozcelik , an 18-year-old of Kurdish descent, was arrested earlier this year at Stansted airport in London.
Ozcelik is believed to be the first British citizen to be arrested for allegedly trying to join the campaign against Islamic State in eastern Syria and western Iraq. She was arrested under Britain’s 2006 Terrorism Act.
In other words, she was arrested for fighting the Islamic State, not joining it.
Ozcelik was refused bail and will remain in Holloway prison until a full hearing on 7 September.
This video from London, England says about itself:
DEMONSTRATION IN FRONT OF HM PRISON HOLLOWAY TO PROTEST SHILAN OZCELIK ARREST. 13 MARCH 2015.
While right-wingers in Britain smear the left wing of the Labour party as ‘akin to ISIS terrorists’, the British Conservative government continues to persecute the only effective force against ISIS, the Turkish and Syrian Kurds, as ‘terrorists’ … reminding one of the time when Nelson Mandela, Senator Edward Kennedy etc. etc. were on the lists of so-called terrorists of NATO countries.
