Several days ago Pro-Kurdish Activists Protest led to numerous arrests. 10 people were rounded up after the conflict between pro-Kurdish Democratic Society Party’s supporters and police.
Activists complained about the Turkish policy against the Kurds in southeastern Turkey. According to the International Crisis Group, 1,786 people, including at least 310 civilians, were killed in Turkey between July 2015 and July 2016. The Kurdish lawyer Tahir Elçi was also among the victims. The co-leader of the left-wing pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party, Selahattin Demirtaş, criticized Erdogan’s decision to shoot down a Russian warplane. Because of it, he was declared as a traitor.
According to the words of Erdogan, the Turkish army maintains an anti-terrorist operation. According to the press it deployed 10,000 soldiers, military hardware and helicopters. Activists say that there were killed 100 civilians during this “anti-terrorist operation”. They usually deal their strikes using various weapon, tanks, armored infantry vehicles, tear-gas. Erdogan said: “we will stick to guns without any time delay”.
The Turkish police every day puts to uses tear-gas against the citizens in Diyarbakır and there are numerous dead bodies in the streets.
This operation is stacked against the nation, against citizens. The government must stop it. Europe must show Turkey the Red Card! If the government puts to uses tanks against citizens and its own nation – I think it is real war. Am I right? The armed conflict between the Republic of Turkey and various Kurdish insurgent groups, which have demanded separation from Turkey to create an independent Kurdistan, or to have autonomy and greater political and cultural rights for Kurds inside the Republic of Turkey, must be stopped.
