Airstrikes by the Turkish military on Kurdish groups in Syria and Iraq on Tuesday has put the operation to capture the Islamic State (IS) stronghold Raqqa in danger, according to statements from Syrian Kurdish leaders.

Turkish airstrikes targeted the positions of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), the main group in the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which is spearheading the assault on Raqqa, killing at least 18 early Tuesday morning, Reuters reported.

Syrian Kurdish officials of the Kurdish-led autonomous administration in northern Syria have condemned the dozen or so strikes and said they could put the operation in danger if international forces did not put up a stance.

Salih Muslim: We are expecting a statement from the coalition

Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) co-leader Salih Muslim said the airstrikes would have a negative impact on the Raqqa operation, adding, “Turkish warplanes cannot fly in the area without the coalition’s approval. The coalition needs to make a statement. Did the coalition have knowledge of the attack? How do they view this development?”

Ilham Ehmed: Attack occurred as Raqqa operation reaches final stage

Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) co-leader Ilham Ehmed, who spoke from northeastern Derik city’s Karakoch area, which airstrikes targeted, also emphasised that the coalition needed to make its stance clear.

“While the YPG is participating in the Wrath of Euphrates Operation to liberate Raqqa, Turkey is attacking our centres. We do not accept any airstrikes on our forces, whether they be Turkish, Russian or Syrian.”

Fawza Yousif: We will protect our land

A leading member of the North Syria Democratic Federation Executive Council, Fawza Yousif said Kurdish forces would stop the Raqqa operation and instead defend themselves against Turkey if the coalition and US did not stop Ankara’s attacks, Kurdish agency Roj News reported.

Erdogans neuer Feldzug beginnt

http://de.share-your-photo.com/img/610bac7b7e.jpg

Türkische Kampfjets bombardieren das Jesidengebiet Sengal im Nordirak und YPG-Stellungen in Rojava.

Vom 9. April an hielten wir uns zwei Wochen im nordirakischen Sengal auf. Wir recherchierten zum illegalen Gebrauch deutscher Waffen gegen die dort lebenden Jesiden durch den kurdischen Warlord Mesud Barzani. Als wir ankamen, war einer der ersten Orte, den uns die Kolleg*innen vor Ort stolz zeigten, der Bahce Serokatî, der Abdullah-Öcalan-Garten. Das Denkmal erinnert an jene Frauen und Männer der PKK und der jesidischen Widerstandseinheiten YBS, die im Herbst 2014 im Kampf gegen die Terrormiliz Islamischer Staat (IS, Daesh) fielen, um einen Genozid an der jesidischen Minderheit zu verhindern.

Das Denkmal gibt es nicht mehr. In der Nacht zum 25. April flogen türkische Kampfjets parallel Angriffe auf Gebiete im Nordirak, im Sengal und in Rojava. Sie zerstörte ebenfalls eine YPG-Basis in Karacok, zwei Radio-Sender – einen davon in Rojava, einen im Sengal –, und bombardierten die Bergregionen in Haftanin, Gare und Kandil.

Die genauen Ausmaße der Attacke können wir zum Zeitpunkt der Veröffentlichung dieses Textes noch nicht feststellen. Sicher ist aber, dass es Gefallene und Verwundete gab. Sicher ist auch: Der Angriff war lange absehbar und soll den Aufakt zu einer länderübergreifenden Kampagne gegen die kurdische Befreiungsbewegung bilden. Überrascht muss niemand tun: Recep Tayyip Erdogan und seine Handpuppe Binali Yildirim haben die Aktion seit Monaten öffentlich angekündigt, inklusive Datum. Die internationale Öffentlichkeit, die sich so herzzerreissend um die Jesiden sorgte, als es darum ging, Waffenexporte in den Irak zu rechtfertigen, schwieg.

Schon jetzt kann man einige Feststellungen zur Einordnung der Bombenkampagne treffen. Erstens: Es wird nicht bei vereinzelten Provokationen bleiben. Die Türkei zieht Panzer an der Grenze zum Irak zusammen, vestärkt ihre Truppen in der Kurdischen Autonomieregion im Nordirak und bringt Kollaborationskräfte in Stellung.

Zweitens: Die Attacken nutzen direkt dem Islamischen Staat. Denn die kurdischen Volksverteidigungskräfte YPG/YPJ und verbündete Kräfte sind derzeit dabei, die syrische Kleinstadt Taqba zu befreien, der Belagerungsring um die Daesh-Hauptstadt Raqqa ist geschlossen. Bei Taqba gibt es seit Tagen heftige Kämpfe. Die türkischen Bombardements helfen dem Islamischen Staat, Luft zu holen, weil sich YPG/YPJ nun um eine weitere Front kümmern müssen.

Drittens: Die USA haben entweder ihre Zustimmung zu (begrenzten) Operationen gegeben oder müssten jetzt scharf reagieren. Realistisch ist ersteres. „Jeder hier weiß, dass es ein taktisches Spiel ist“, sagt der Internationalist Serhildan Sengali in Qamishlo gegenüber LCM. „Manchmal macht Washington uns Zugeständnisse, manchmal der Türkei. Sicher, die USA wollen, dass wir nach Raqqa gehen. Aber sie wollen auch nicht, dass wir zu stark werden. Deshalb erlauben sie der Türkei in bestimmten Ausmaßen Operationen. Und Kandil wollen sowieso beide beseitigen.“

Viertens: Der Krieg rund um Sengal wird mit deutschen Panzern geführt werden. Denn die dortigen KDP-Milizen haben welche und sie kooperieren mit Erdogan. Sie haben sie am 3. März gegen Jesiden eingesetzt und sie werden es wieder tun, wenn Barzani keinen Positionswechsel vollzieht oder ihn andere kurdische Parteien daran hindern.

Fünftens: Der Angriff zeigt auch erneut, wie sich Angela Merkels „Flüchtlingsdeal“ mit der Türkei in der Realität auswirkt. Ankara verhindert systematisch jede Normalisierung im Sengal oder Rojava, die dafür sorgen könnte, dass Menschen hier bleiben oder zurückkehren. Der Effekt der Attacken: Neue Fluchtbewegungen.

Die heutigen Bombenangriffe lassen für die kommenden Monate unruhige Zeiten erwarten. Erdogan will seine Diktatur nach innen wie außen absichern, sein Hauptgegner dabei ist die kurdische Befreiungsbewegung. Er hat betont: Er will sie „vernichten“. Das weltweite Schweigen zu Massakern wie in den Städten Cizre und Nusaybin im vergangenen Jahr, hat ihn ermutigt, dabei keine Rücksicht mehr auf zivile Opfer zu nehmen.

HDP Prison Committee releases report on hunger strikes

Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) Prison Committee released an information note regarding the ongoing indefinite and irreversible hunger strike by political prisoners in the prisons of Turkey.

Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) Prison Committee released the following information note regarding the ongoing indefinite and irreversible hunger strike by political prisoners in the prisons of Turkey:

The hunger strike protests of political prisoners in Turkish penitentiary institutions have reached a critical point. The protest was initiated in Izmir Şakran High Security Prison on 15 February 2017 to draw attention to gross human rights violations and inhumane living conditions in prisons, the isolation on the imprisoned PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan, and Erdoğan-AKP government’s renewed politics violence and war in the Kurdish issue. It soon spread to other prisons across Turkey.

Currently, as of April 6, about one hundred political prisoners continue indefinite and non-alternate hunger strikes in eight different penitentiary institutions. Thirty-four of the protesting prisoners are women.

Indefinite Hunger Strikes (6 April 2017)

http://de.share-your-photo.com/img/419cf0987f.jpg

In addition to the indefinite and non-alternate protests tabled above, political prisoners carry out five-day-long alternating solidarity hunger strikes in several other facilities since March 15.

The solidarity hunger strikes of imprisoned HDP MPs Ayhan Bilgen, former HDP Parliamentary Group Spokesperson, Meral Danış Beştaş and Nihat Akdogan have reached its sixth-day. In her note to the press on April 4, Ms Beştaş recorded the following:

Prisoners at Şakran and Tekirdağ prisons are now at the edge of death. Our hunger strike, started on 1 April 2017, is but simply a call [to the authorities] ‘to be abide by law’. Nevertheless, the demands of prisoners on hunger strike are nothing but humane and legal.

We, the imprisoned deputies, have no demands for ourselves. Our one and only demand is the ending of inhumane and derogatory practices targeting prisoners [in Turkey].

Whereas prison administrations have so far remained non-responsive to these calls, arbitrary pressures on protesting prisoners continue extensively, as further source of risk to their health and lives. According to reports received by HDP Prison Committee:

- In Tarsus Prison, where hunger strike is on its 23rd day, prisoners are not allowed to access B12 vitamin despite continuous demands.

- On 16 March 2017, prisoners at Van T Type (High Security) Prison were transferred to Tekirdağ Prison, in westernmost Turkey, on the ninth day of their hunger strikes. Their hunger strike still continues. Another group of protesting prisoners at Van Prison were transferred to Bandırma F Type Prison, again in western Turkey, reportedly under continuous physical harassment.

- On 3 April 2017, relatives of prisoners at Izmir Şakran T4 Prison were verbally and physically harassed and attacked by prison guards.

Reports are based on the data gathered from HDP deputies, Human Rights Association (IHD), Prisons Solidarity Initiative (ZDI), Libertarian Lawyers Platform (ÖHP), Progressive Lawyers Association (ÇHD), Union of Turkish Doctors (TTB), and several other non-governmental organizations advocating for prisoners’ rights, and confirmed news in the media and press.

Two siblings who were injured after an object they were playing with in their garden exploded, have died.

5-year-old Fatih Gunes and his sister 3-year-old sister Havin were injured in the Abdulkadir Pasa Neighbourhood in Turkey’s Kurdish district Nusaybin on Thursday morning after an unidentified object exploded.

Both children were critically injured in the blast and taken to the local state hospital. While the younger child died on the same day, her brother passed away in the early hours of Friday morning.

The blast occurred in one of the neighbourhoods that was the scene of clashes between Turkish security forces and Kurdish militia in 2015 and 2016.

The object is thought to have been left over from clashes in an area that was cleared by security forces.

Anarchists Fighting ISIS in Rojava Announce New Formation


Anarchists in Rojava announce IRPGF von gaetano-bresci

Today we announce the formation of the International Revolutionary People’s Guerrilla Forces, an explicitly anarchist, militant group in Rojava seeking to defend the Revolution and advance the cause of anarchism.

The Role of the IRPGF

The International Revolutionary People’s Guerrilla Forces (IRPGF) is a militant armed self-organized and horizontal collective working to defend social revolutions around the world, to directly confront capital and the state, and advance the cause of anarchism. We recognize and affirm that principled action necessitates principled politics. We are not a political party or platform but rather an armed collective comprised of comrades with different anarchist positions. The IRPGF’s collective unity manifests itself in the praxis of militant action which we consider a prerequisite for achieving liberation. Our role is twofold; to be an armed force capable of defending liberatory social revolutions around the world while simultaneously being a force capable of insurrection and struggle against all kyriarchal forms of power wherever they exist.

We do not enter conflict zones with intent to command but rather, while retaining our autonomy as a collective, to fight alongside other armed groups in solidarity with those who are oppressed, exploited and facing annihilation. The IRPGF believes collective action, solidarity and unity are necessary for struggle. International solidarity is the most powerful weapon of the oppressed. At the same time we maintain the need for criticism when and where appropriate. (Self)Criticism is not something to be feared. It is to be embraced as the constant source of energy that drives individuals, communities and revolutionary movements towards realizing liberation.

The Need for Armed Struggle

Within movements for liberation an enormous chasm exists between those who deploy peaceful means to confront the enemy and those who defend both their communities and themselves through armed struggle. These dichotomous positions contain within them an inter-sectional network of social positions and identities that reveal their location, context and content. For the IRPGF, peaceful methods are unable to confront and destroy the state, capitalism and all forms of kyriarchal power. In fact, they do the reverse. They protect, embolden and strengthen the enemy, enhancing the forms of oppression against increasingly isolated individuals and divided societies. We believe that our liberation springs forth from the barrel of a gun.

Armed insurrections and rebellions around the world will be carried out to the end. We fight in defense of life and we struggle for total liberation. The nation-state, authority, capital and social hierarchy are the enemies of a liberated world and therefore enemies of us all. While we struggle through self-criticism and collective criticism of our personal and collective internalizations of these oppressive behaviors, attitudes and practices, the external enemies; the bosses, along with their armies and police, must be confronted with bullets, bombs and dynamite. The fires of justice and freedom are cleansing and all consuming. For us, there is no stepping back and no way to achieve liberation except through struggle. Our communities will only be liberated when we destroy those few whose wealth and power depend on the suffering and exploitation of many.

The master does not give the slave freedom simply out of an ethical act of pity, selflessness and love. The slave must achieve their liberation through insurrection, resistance and revolution, using every tool of the master to destroy both the master and their mechanisms and apparatuses of domination and oppression. The yoke of tyranny and its chains of repression cannot withstand the insurrection of the oppressed. We long for the day when swords will be turned into ploughshares, but until that day arrives, if it ever does, we will hold on to our weapons. The IRPGF’s existence is predicated on the necessity of armed struggle. The moment this is no longer necessary, the IRPGF will cease to exist. Our position is against the notion of “standing armies” or ossified revolutionary groups that become insular states unto themselves.

The IRPGF’s International Position

We believe that the third world war has already started and that the conflicts in Syria, Ukraine and in other parts of the world are only the beginning. The capitalist system, nearing its end and having plundered the world and stripped it of its resources, faces its most acute crisis yet. With no surplus labor population to put in its dungeons and assembly lines, the antagonisms and contradictions of the system in crisis are unfolding. With imperialist powers fighting for the last scraps to safeguard their livelihoods and with fascism on the rise, a common struggle is developing against both the domination of capital and the state. The IRPGF will stand with all peoples looking to secure their futures free from ALL forms of oppression, domination and exploitation. We are cognizant and recognize the intersection of unique identities and the particularities that exist within individuals, in communities and between individuals and communities. We support and seek to fully realize the polymorphic nature of human identity and struggle. To this end we join with peoples around the world in their uniqueness, and in ours, to realize our collective liberation.

FOR THE REVOLUTION AND ANARCHISM!

Kemal Kurkut survived Isis suicide bomb but couldn’t survive Turkish police

http://img5.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/anigif1uc9x10nv8k.gif
Kemal Kurkut was a fine arts student at the Malatya University and could play several instruments, including the violin.

The young student who was shot dead by a police officer ahead of the Kurdish Newroz celebration in Turkey’s southeastern Diyarbakir province, had survived the Ankara train station massacre perpetrated by the Islamic State (IS) group in October 2015, which killed 103 civilians.

New details continue coming to light in the killing of fine arts student Kemal Kurkut, who died after being shot by police at a checkpoint in Kurdish-majority city Diyarbakir on Tuesday.

Forced to strip by police

According to eyewitnesses, the young man was forced to strip by police at the checkpoint and verbally abused, after which he ran away and returned with a knife he stole from a nearby butcher’s shop.

Speaking to Dihaber News Agency, the young man’s brother Ferhat Kurkut corroborated statements saying, “the police point their guns at him and he tells them, ‘I have nothing on me’, they make him take his clothes off, he argues with them but does what is told. After he is forced to take his vest off he suffers a nervous breakdown. That’s when it all happens.”

Survived Isis suicide bomb attack

The victim’s cousin, also called Kemal, told Dihaber that the young man suffered trauma after experiencing the death of more than 100 people in the twin suicide bomb attack at a peace rally in Ankara in 2015.

“He wasn’t injured physically, but spiritually he collapsed after that incident. He became introverted, quiet and withdrawn. When we asked him what he had experienced he would just say, ‘People were ripped to pieces, their blood was everywhere.’ People’s blood has also sprayed on to him. He couldn’t get over it.”

The cousin called the shooting an “extrajudicial killing” and said the family wanted the person responsible to be found and punished.

Violation of right to life

The Diyarbakir Bar Association and Turkey’s Human Rights Association (IHD) also made statements calling the incident “an outright violation of the right to life.”

The Diyarbakir Bar Association criticised the local governorate’s statement, which had said Kurkut had been shot due to suspicions of being a suicide bomber and having a bomb in his bag. The association said that images, eyewitness statements and later developments had proven this not to be the case.

Reports pointed out that Kurkut was running away from police and had not attacked them at any point when he was shot. The area he was running towards was empty with three hours until the start of celebrations, Dihaber said.

Clothes and poems in bag

According to family members there were clothes and poetry books in the student’s bag, which was in the possession of police when the shooting occurred.

The opposition People’s Democratic (HDP) Party organised a press conference on Thursday and called the killing “murder.”

HDP spokesperson Osman Baydemir said the incident had been engineered by police to prevent the Newroz celebration and provoke large scale violence.

Commenting on the government’s silence so far, Baydemir added, “By ignoring this murder the prime minister, the justice minister are also responsible” during a visit to Kurkut’s bereaved family.

Another HDP lawmaker, Ahmet Yildirim, went on social media to vent his anger, saying:

“If this sensitivity had been shown in the cases of real suicide bombers hundreds of people wouldn’t have died in the past 2 years. My respects to this beautiful person [Kemal Kurkut].”

Family prevented from washing corpse

Criticism was also directed at the AKP government administered Battalgazi District Municipality in eastern city Malatya, where Kurkut was buried.

According to family members, municipality workers cut the morgue’s water to prevent the washing of the young man’s corpse, didn’t allow for him to buried next to his father and blocked a funeral vehicle belonging to the municipality from carrying his coffin.

Family persecuted for being Kurdish Alevis

Uncle Yusuf Kurkut condemned the actions saying it was because they belonged to the persecuted Alevi and Kurdish community in the country.

Uncle Yusuf Kurkut told Cumhuriyet daily, “They [the government] said ‘democracy’ but where is it? They said ‘equality’ but where is it? How can you shoot an innocent 20 year old? What is our crime? I am an Alevi, this is my crime. I am Kurdish, this is my crime. I am poor, this is my crime. If there is justice, where is it?”

Extrajudicial killings, forced disappearances

At least 10,000 people are thought to have been killed in extrajudicial killings (enforced disappearances) by governmental forces without the sanction of any judicial proceeding or legal process since the 1990’s in Turkey. Most of the incidents occurred at the height of the war between the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and Turkish army.

However the procedure has continued under the tenure of the Erdogan government, with hundreds of civilians being killed since a return to clashes in 2015. Turkish authorities deny killing civilians and have called those killed “terrorists.”

Turquie : un étudiant abattu par la police lors des célébrations du nouvel an kurde

Selon les autorités, le jeune homme, venu participer aux festivités de Newroz à Diyarbakir, dans le sud-est de la Turquie, avait refusé de se soumettre aux contrôles et était en possession d’un couteau.

Kemal Kurkut, 23 ans, étudiant à l’université de Malatya, était venu tout spécialement à Diyarbakir, la « capitale » de la région kurde de Turquie, pour participer aux festivités de Newroz, mardi 21 mars. Arrivé à 300 mètres de l’esplanade où la fête battait son plein, il a été abattu par des officiers de police qui l’ont ensuite décrit comme un forcené.

La mort du jeune homme illustre combien la situation reste tendue dans les régions kurdes du sud-est de la Turquie. Célébrée ce jour-là dans une vingtaine de villes en Turquie, la fête de Newroz s’est globalement déroulée dans le calme et sous étroite surveillance policière.

Sezgin Tanrikulu, député du parti républicain du peuple (CHP, social-démocrate, premier parti d’opposition) au Parlement turc, a demandé des comptes au gouvernement à propos de la mort de l’étudiant. « Pourquoi a-t-il été tué quand il aurait pu être neutralisé par les centaines d’officiers de police déployés sur le site ? », a-t-il interrogé à l’occasion d’une session du Parlement, jeudi 23 mars.
Prises de vue effacées

Selon la préfecture de Diyarbakir, l’étudiant a proféré des menaces envers les policiers après avoir refusé de se soumettre aux contrôles. Huseyin Aksoy, le préfet, a assuré que le jeune homme était en possession d’un couteau et d’un sac en plastique dans lequel les policiers craignaient que se trouve un engin explosif. Mais des photos de la scène, publiées par l’agence de presse locale Dicle, montrent Kemal Kurkut, torse nu, sans aucun sac en sa possession.

Des témoins ont affirmé que les policiers avaient tiré en l’air à plusieurs reprises avant de faire feu sur l’étudiant qui avait fait fi de leurs avertissements. Grièvement blessé, il a été transporté à l’hôpital où il est mort quelques minutes plus tard.

Selon le député d’opposition Sezgin Tanrikulu, les policiers ont alors contraint la plupart des photographes et vidéastes présents sur le lieu du drame à effacer leurs prises de vues.

Aux yeux d’Osman Baydemir, député du Parti de la démocratie des peuples (HDP, prokurde), il s’agit d’une « exécution extrajudiciaire ». « Nous réclamons la mise en examen des auteurs de cet assassinat », a déclaré le député lors d’une conférence presse à Diyarbakir, jeudi. « Il s’agit d’un triste accident », a assuré le préfet Aksoy, assurant que toute la lumière serait faite.

Kurkut murdered by the police at Newroz in Amed

The young man murdered yesterday by the Turkish police in Amed has been identified as Kemal Kurkut. He had travelled to Amed from Malatya for Newroz celebrations.

Kemal Kurkut

The half naked young man killed by the police “on suspicion of a suicide bomber” in the Newroz celebrations in Amed has been identified as university student Kemal Kurkut. Kurkut’s body was received by his family to be buried in Malatya. The family refused the allegations that he was a suicide bomber.

The half naked young man killed by the police “on suspicion of a suicide bomber” in the Newroz celebrations in Amed has been identified as university student Kemal Kurkut, born in Adıyaman. Kurkut was a student in the İnönü University Fine Arts Faculty Department of Music. He lived in Malatya. His body was taken from the Malatya Institute of Forensic Medicine by his family to be buried.

Kurkut’s funeral will be held today in Malatya’s Batalgazi district.

FAMILY DENIED ALLEGATIONS

Dihaber contacted the Kurkut family, who denied the allegations made by the Diyarbakır Governorate that “The police intervened because there was a possibility that the man who ran into the grounds with a knife in his hand, saying ‘I have a bomb in my pack, I will kill you all’ was a suicide bomber.” The family said their son went to Amed to attend the Newroz celebrations.

HOW WAS HE SHOT?

Meanwhile, photographs of the half naked Kemal Kurkut being shot have emerged.

http://de.share-your-photo.com/img/5d5e7287f5.jpg

The photographs show that a half naked Kemal Kurkut had an argument with the police at the Newroz Park checkpoint on Evrim Alataş Avenue. Then he passed the checkpoint and started to walk towards the grounds, which was when the police shot Kemal Kurkut.

Kurkut ran some 10-15 meters, clutching his wound, then fell down behind the water cannon on the side of the road. Kurkut was hospitalized by the ambulance that arrived some 10 minutes later, and lost his life there.

The police controlled the cameras of journalists in the scene and made them format the memory cards.

Kemal Kurkut

Während sich gestern in Amed etwa 1 Million Menschen sammelten und das Newroz-Fest begingen, wurde am Rande der Feierlichkeiten ein junger Mann von Polizisten ermordet. Noch am Abend lancierten türkische Medien eine Erklärung des örtlichen Gouverneurs dem zu Folge es sich „um einen mutmaßlichen Selbstmordattentäter“ gehandelt habe, „der gerufen habe „in meiner Tasche ist eine Bombe, ich sprenge euch alle in die Luft“. Anschließend hätte er sich mit einer Tasche und einem Messer in der Hand der Durchsuchung entzogen, und habe versucht, in die Menge zu laufen. Bevor er diese habe erreichen können wäre er mit Schüssen durch die Polizei gestoppt worden.

Nun sind Bilder aufgetaucht, sie wurden von dihaber aufgenommen, die einen ganz anderen Hergang der Ereignisse belegen. Demnach wurde der junge Mann durchsucht. Auf den Bildern ist er zur Hälfte entkleidet und ohne jegliches Gepäck zu sehen, in seinen Händen ist eine kleine Pet-Flasche Wasser zu sehen. In der anderen hält er zwar ein Messer, allerdings ohne damit irgend eine drohende Handlung zu vollziehen. Als es zur Diskussion kommt und er sich durch Flucht zu entziehen versucht, wird er von einem Polizisten, der etwa 3 bis 4 Meter von ihm entfernt steht, hinterrücks niedergeschossen. Der junge Mann wird verletzt, hält sich die Verletzung mit der Hand, läuft aber weiter. Nach weiteren 10–15 Metern bricht er zusammen. Im Krankenhaus verstirbt er. Bei dem jungen Mann handelt es sich um Kemal Kurkut, einem Kunststudenten, dessen Familie ursprünglich aus Adıyaman stammt. Er war extra aus Malatya für das Newrozfest angereist.

VIDÉO DE L‘EXÉCUTION D‘UN KURDE PAR LA POLICE TURQUE

Le 21 mars, la police turque a exécuté un jeune kurde près de la place où avait lieu les célébrations du nouvel an kurde (Newroz) à Amed.
La police turque a prétendu que le jeune homme avait un sac à dos et qu‘il ne voulait pas qu‘on le fouille et qu‘ils avaient peur qu‘il transporte une bombe sur lui.

Les photos et les images vidéos montrent clairement qu‘il n‘avait pas de sac et qu‘il était torse nu pour bien montrer qu‘il n‘avait rien sur lui. Le jeune homme essaie de s‘éloigner mais ne s‘enfuit pas; alors que la police turque décrit presque une course poursuite.
Au pire des cas, quand bien même il aurait eu un sac, il ne l‘a plus. Les policiers l‘auraient donc récupéré. Donc, zéro problème, non ?

Mais plutôt que d‘appréhender un Kurde, c‘est plus facile de le tuer n‘est-ce pas ?
Et puis c‘est devenu tellement simple et naturel depuis les massacres de Cizre, Nusaybin, Sur, Roboski, Gever, Şırnak,… On ne peut pas leur reprocher d‘avoir la gâchette facile. C‘est une habitude aujourd‘hui.

De plus il n‘y a pas de quoi avoir peur des représailles. L‘Etat turc a voté l‘année dernière une loi protégeant ses militaires et ses policiers contre tout procès, quelle qu‘en soit la raison.

C‘est ainsi qu‘une fois de plus, qu‘un Kurde fût tué sans que personne ne soit inquiété…
