(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - international, Kurdistan and Turkey: "Every day the army and the Turkish police murder." (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 2 Jan 2016 13:59:43 +0200

This unique testimony of a militant of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (Halklar?n Demokratik Partisi, HDP) currently present in Turkey sheds light on terror policy pursued by the Turkish state. In France as elsewhere, we must break the omerta of a massacre which one speaks little. ---- After the June elections, the Turkish government had already initiated a policy of terror in the eastern part of Turkey, mainly populated by Kurds. Indeed, the results of these elections were not satisfactory for the AKP and Erdogan: This strategy of tension allowed them to cancel the election and return to power by threatening civil war. ---- But they are not arrested after the election deadline. With the effectiveness of this policy to ensure their power, the AKP since proved that his appeal to the safe and eventually war strategy was far from being ephemeral ...

From August 16 until today, in eastern Turkey, the curfews are dailies. Right now, it is on the cities of Cizre, Silopi and Dargeçit On that falls barbaric and bellicose policy of the Turkish government: 117 people have already died.

All the social or economic activities are stopped: life has stopped. There are power cuts and food running out. We can see people dying in the street just because they were going to get bread, food; children are also covered by Turkish soldiers, people die, crushed under bombardment.

The Kurdish people does not even have the right to bury their dead in Silvan, the body of a murdered child had to stay refrigerated three days because of a curfew ... Now the pictures of those cities look horribly Palestinian cities under Israeli blockade. Between coverest-lights, Kurdish citoyen.ne.s immigrate to other parts of Turkey. Thousands of people lost their homes, their jobs ... and their relatives.

Turkish police fired on manifestant.es in Diyarbakir.

The government's war policy also affects the west of Turkey. Before the last election, at the rally for Peace in Turkey, October 10, 2015, 100 people had lost their lives in the bomb attack in Ankara. After the explosion, police attacked with tear gas and water cannons the manifestant.es trying to flee the area or help blessé.es The government does not even bother to find the The author of the attack, and for the bomb attack in Diyarbakir in July. However, it is the same government that dared to accuse the comrades who organized the rally to be responsible for the attack.

After the last elections in November, the power of the government is facing the war against the Kurds and the peoples who are fighting for real democracy. In the East, they triggered a civil war and in the west of Turkey, they repress and attack militant.es, comrades, people who are fighting against this barbaric and warlike policy.

A total of 500 people have been murdered -for the moment-east - Kurdish regions - and a hundred people were violently detained in the West.

The government used every means he had to destroy all resistance and any manifestation against this unjust war. They started raiding the houses in Istanbul. During the police raids, they killed 5 women even though they had not resisted the police. Dilek Dogan was one of those women. When looking at the records of the raid against his house, we understand that the police have needed no reason for the murder ...

Now be Kurdish, socialist, communist, libertarian, or just fight for their democratic rights, it is enough to be killed by the power in Turkey. Every day the army and the Turkish police murder.

While the AKP and uses réfugié.es syrien.ne.s as leverage to conclude agreements with the European Union, the government's reactionary kill "legally" from Turkey citoyen.ne.s and maintain relations commercial and political ties with DAESH! The hypocrisy, enough, they are fighting to lay down their masks, including that of President Hollande France, which does not condemn the massacres, support the reactionary Turkish government, and thus indirectly Daech. We request support and solidarity from all progressive forces in France and elsewhere: help us to recognize our essential democratic rights and local autonomy of the Kurdish people!

About collected and translated by AL Grenoble

The Kurdish Democratic Council in France called for a mobilization on December 26, 2015. The National Coordination Kurdistan Solidarity (CNSK) - which is involved AL - relayed his call through a single release titled Turkey must stop its aggression against the Kurdish people !

We also invite you to visit Kurdistan folder which comes on the context and the longer-term issues for the Kurdish left.

To summarize, according to the recent report by Human Rights Association, is:

100 people killed in the massacre in Ankara
38 people killed in the massacre of Suruç
8 people killed in the massacre of Zergele
206 people killed in the curfews, protests against the curfews and executions
