Came across this video of a Kurdish protest against an Iranian minister in Dublin last Monday, but cannot find anything else about it online:

Anyone know what meeting this was, any other context? It's clear from the video that the protest accuses the minister of dictatorship and murder of Kurds.

Quite a serious protest against an Iranian Foreign Minister and surprising it is not all over the news. But hold on, did it really happen recently? It looks to me very like a protest by Iranian dissidents back in June 2010: Three arrests over Iran protest in Dublin - RTÉ News No mention of Kurds as such. This unfortunate nation-seeking people is split between Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria and has a large diaspora. PKK, KDP, there is an alphabet soup of rival Kurdish factions, some leftist, others pro-western, but we do know that the Peshmerga in Syria is playing an important role in holding back ISIS. Aljazeera has an interesting interactive map on the major Kurdish factions: http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/interactive/2015/07/major-kurdish-factions-150728150924667.html

:oops: That's the one. It was put up by a Kurdish group recently without explanation or date, hence the confusion.
