Turkeys War on Kurdish Television

International reaction against EUTELSAT-AKP fascism

IFJ-EFJ condemned the closure of Kurdish TV networks through the joint fascism of EUTELSAT and the Turkish state.

The International and European Federation of Journalists (IFJ and EFJ) yesterday organised a press briefing at the Brussels’ Europe Press Club to protest the on-going clampdown on media in Turkey and to urge the government to lift the ban on news channels.

The Turkish government recently shut down about 20 TV and radio channels, including the Kurdish Channel Med-Nuçe based in Belgium that was removed on 3 October by Eutelsat SA, a French satellite provider, on Turkey’s request.

In Turkey, 90 journalists are in jail, more than 2,500 journalists lost their jobs and arrest warrants have been issued against hundreds of media workers since the coup attempt on 15 July.

Speakers invited to the IFJ/EFJ briefing included Füsun Erdogan, freelance journalist for TV and radio channels Bianet, Özgür Radyo and Med Nûce; Baki Gül, journalist at Kurdish Channel Med Nûce and Bayram Balcı, journalist at Özgür Gündem. They shared their personal stories and called on the international community to take action against the discriminatory measures that Turkish authorities are using to silence criticism.

“I’ve spent 8 years in prison under false accusations and without trial,” said Füsun Erdogan. “Our responsibility as journalists is to inform the public and to report what is going on in Turkey.” Füsun Erdogan said he was falsely accused of being a membership of a terrorist organisation in 2006. After spending 8 years in jail, she went into exiled in the Netherlands.

Baki Gül denounced the arbitrary way in shutting down his channel which broadcasts from Belgium. The workers of Med Nûce TV have called on European institutions to put pressure on Turkey to respect fundamental rights and have questioned the legitimacy of the suspension by the Higher Council of Audio-visual in Turkey (RTÜK) of the channel that broadcasts from Europe.

Özgür Gündem journalist Bayram Balcı recounted how he was arrested and called on the European journalists to stand in solidarity with their Turkish counterparts.

IFJ General Secretary Anthony Bellanger announced that IFJ will launch a solidarity campaign for Turkish colleagues, who are fighting to maintain their rights. “Turkey was the biggest prison for journalists in Europe before 15 July. Today, Turkey is, with China and Iran, one of the biggest in the world! We are not defending only free press or freedom of expression, we are defending human rights and citizen’s right to be informed,” said Anthony Bellanger, who also has called for global solidarity with Turkish journalists.

EFJ Project Officer Mehmet Köksal said that “The IFJ and EFJ have reported all the cases that took place in Turkey to the Council of Europe Platform for the promotion of journalism and the safety of journalits, and is keeping updated a list of jailed journalists in Turkey. It is a way of knowing how many days they have been in jail, so that we don‘t forget them“.

Keine Böhmermann-Ermittlung / Erdogan scheitert endgültig

Dieses Schmähgedicht muss er aushalten: Die Generalstaatsanwaltschaft Koblenz wies Erdogans Beschwerde als unbegründet zurück – und bestätigt damit das Mainzer Urteil.

Der türkische Präsident Recep Tayyip Erdogan ist mit seiner Beschwerde gegen die Einstellung der strafrechtlichen Ermittlungen gegen Jan Böhmermann gescheitert. Die Generalstaatsanwaltschaft Koblenz wies sie als unbegründet zurück. Ende März hatte Böhmermann in seiner ZDF-Show „Neo Magazin Royale“ das Gedicht „Schmähkritik“ vorgetragen, das aus lauter Beleidigungen bestand, um – wie der Moderator meinte –, vorzuführen, was auch in Deutschland nicht erlaubt sei.

Die Staatsanwaltschaft Mainz hatte gegen Böhmermann wegen des Verdachts der Beleidigung nach Paragraph 185 und 103 Strafgesetzbuch ermittelt, ihre Untersuchung aber mangels Verdachts eingestellt. Die zu klärenden rechtlichen Fragen seien von der Mainzer Staatsanwaltschaft „im Ergebnis zutreffend und im Einklang mit der Rechtsprechung beantwortet“ worden, stellte die Generalstaatsanwaltschaft Koblenz fest. Die Entscheidung, dass Böhmermann mit seinem Schmähgedicht keine strafbare Handlung begangen habe, sei nicht zu beanstanden. Die Erfolgsaussichten einer Anklage seien gering. Nun kann Erdogan noch versuchen, durch ein Klagererzwingungsverfahren vor dem Oberlandesgericht Koblenz dafür zu sorgen, dass die Staatsanwaltschaft doch wieder ermittelt.

Doch auch wenn Erdogan den Weg der Klageerzwingung gehen sollte, seine Chancen dürften gering sein. Die Einlassungen zunächst der Staatsanwaltschaft Mainz und nun der Generalstaatsanwaltschaft Koblenz sind eindeutig. „Aus der maßgeblichen Sicht eines verständigen und zur Gesamtbetrachtung unter Berücksichtigung des künstlerischen Gesamtkonzeptes bereiten Beobachters liegt der Aussagekern der Darbietung des Beschuldigten in der Kritik an dem Umgang des türkischen Staatspräsidenten mit den Grundfreiheiten aus Art. 5 Grundgesetz“, schreibt der Koblenzer Generalstaatsanwalt Jürgen Brauer in seiner zwanzigseitigen Begründung zur Einstellung der Ermittlungen gegen Böhmermann.

Keine Beleidigung, nirgends

Es sei, „nicht zu widerlegen, dass die Darbietung aufzeigen sollte, wie weit aus Sicht des Beschuldigten die Vorstellungen des türkischen Staatspräsidenten von den Grenzen der Kunst- und Meinungsfreiheit von denen des deutschen Rechtsverständnisses entfernt sind“. Es sei „unzulässig, sich bei der Beurteilung der Darbietung auf den Wortlaut der Gedichtverse zu beschränken, ohne den Gesamtkontext, in den sie gestellt wurden, zu berücksichtigen.“

Der Deutsche Journalisten-Verband (DJV) teilte mit, die Entscheidung der Generalstaatsanwaltschaft Koblenz sei „erwartungsgemäß“ ausgefallen. Der türkische Präsident Erdogan, sagte der DJV-Bundesvorsitzende Frank Überall, „sollte seine Energie nicht weiter auf aussichtslose juristische Auseinandersetzungen verwenden, sondern sich stattdessen mit der gleichen Vehemenz um die Wiederherstellung der Pressefreiheit in seinem Land bemühen. Dazu muss gehören, dass die inhaftierten Journalisten sofort auf freien Fuß gesetzt werden.“

Medienzensurkampagne der Türkei erreicht Europa: Fernsehsender MedNuce TV gestoppt

http://de.share-your-photo.com/img/98da83d6ed.png

Heute Morgen um 10 Uhr hat der Satellitenbetreiber Eutelsat die Ausstrahlung des kurdischen Nachrichtensenders MedNuce TV gestoppt. Damit hat das französische Unternehmen die Forderung des türkischen Staates, welcher seinerseits erst am 29. September gegen kurdische und oppositionelle ein Ausstrahlungsverbot verhängte, in die Tat umgesetzt (wir berichteten hier).

In den letzten Minuten der Ausstrahlungszeit führte der Nachrichtensender ein Telefoninterview mit der HDP Kovorsitzenden Figen Yüksekdag, die darauf aufmerksam machte, dass der türkische Staat mit einer breit angelegten Medienzensurkampagne derzeit versuche, seine Vergehen in den kurdischen Siedlungsgebieten des Landes zu verdecken. Ziel sei es, über gleichgeschaltete Medien eine unkritische Bevölkerung im Land zu erzeugen. Doch diese Versuche würden am Widerstand der Bevölkerung scheitern und hätten trotz aller Repressionsmaßnahmen der AKP keine Aussicht auf Erfolg.

Nach dem Gespräch mit Yüksekdag führte die Moderatorin von MedNuce TV ein weiteres Telefoninterview mit der Kovorsitzenden der Demokratischen Partei der Regionen (DBP), Sebahat Tuncel. Diese rief in den letzten Minuten der Sendezeit des Fernsehsenders die Zuhörerschaft dazu auf, die Familienpatenschafts-Kampagne des Rojava-Hilfsvereins zu unterstützen. „Viele Familien in Şirnex (Şirnak) befinden sich in derzeit in einer dringenden Notsituation“, so Tuncel. In der Folge der Ausgangssperren und des Angriffskrieges des türkischen Staates gegen die Bevölkerung der Stadt, hätten viele Familien ihre Wohnungen und Häuser verloren und würden derzeit in Zelten leben. Tuncel erklärte, dass dies bei den derzeit schnell sinkenden Temperaturen in der Region eine äußerst schwierige Situation darstelle. Ähnlich schwer sei die Situation auch in der Stadt Nisebîn (Nusaybin). Weitere Informationen zu der Kampagne der Familienpatenschaften finden Sie hier.

French satellite company Eutelsat has suspended the broadcast of Belgium based pro-Kurdish MED Nuçe Tv.

Following the coup on the opposition media by the fascist Turkish state and the plug being pulled in over 20 networks that were the voice of Kurds, Alevis and workers, Eutelsat ordered Med Nuçe TV’s broadcast be stopped last week. Kurdish people and allies in Paris gathered in front of the Eutelsat building and held a protest.

France Democratic Kurdish Council (CDK-F) officials met with Eutelsat officials and afterwards made the announcement that “Eutelsat officials have admitted that the Turkish state has sent a letter to Eutelsat via RTÜK (Radio and Television Supreme Council) demanding Med Nuçe’s broadcast be stopped.”
Mednuçe TV started to broadcast in 2013.

Eutelsat had suspended the broadcast of Kurdish Roj TV in early 2012.

Kurds are expected to hold protests across Europe starting from today against the action of the French satellite company acting in line with Turkey’s demand.

Islamic State executes 75 prisoners in northern Iraq

http://en.shafaqna.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Erdo%C4%9Fan.jpg

Radical group of the Islamic State (ISIS) has executed dozens of prisoners in a major detention centre in the Iraqi northwestern city of Mosul on Sunday.

“At least 75 prisoners were executed by ISIS in the Mosul Central Prison,” local media activist Abdullah al-Malla told ARA News, citing an ISIS official.

Most of the victims were young Iraqi men who have been recently arrested by ISIS militants in Mosul and other parts of Nineveh province.

“The Islamic State’s leadership has charged them with treason,” the informed source reported.

The executed civilians included at least 25 media activists.

Speaking to ARA News, Iraqi security officer Zanoun Sabaawi said that the ISIS radical group has threatened all journalists and media activists of execution if they report on local developments in areas held by the group.

“Terrorists of Daesh (ISIS) want all their violations and atrocities against the Iraqi people to go unnoticed. That’s why they try to prevent reporters from covering local news in places like Mosul,” Sabaawi said.

Mosul is the main ISIS bastion in Iraq. The group has taken over the city and other Iraqi territories in June 2014. Since then thousands of people have been arrested, tortured and executed at the hands of ISIS militants. Also, hundreds of thousands have been displaced, mostly heading to the Iraqi Kurdistan.

NYC: Rojava Will Be the Graveyard of Turkey and ISIS

http://de.share-your-photo.com/img/958a51453e.jpg

While the world descends into a dark authoritarian nightmare, the guerrilla fighters in Rojava, in northern Syria, have forged a new path for revolutionaries everywhere. With a politic built on feminism, anti-capitalism, anti-state, and communal praxis, Kurdish revolutionaries assisted by anarchist and communist guerrillas are ushering in the most important revolution in the 21st century.

The primary fighting units in Rojava, the YPG and YPJ, have faced insurmountable odds, battling Daesh, Bashar Assad’s forces, and various other counter-revolutionary forces in Syria. Armed with conviction and fighting against some of the most fascist forces in the world their battlefield victories have resonated all over the globe. The YPG/YPJ’s successes are so profound that their political model is the only viable political option for Syria, and has created a viable alternative for revolutionary movements worldwide.

This is the exact reason Turkey’s fascist leader, Erdogan, has chosen to intervene in Syria. He recognizes that Rojava’s anti-state, anti-capitalist, and anti-patriarchal values are a direct threat to his chauvinistic throne. The Turkish state has undermined the revolution since its inception and has supported every reactionary force in the region to crush the revolutions gains: funding and granting political support to Daesh and Al Nusra and recently colluding with Assad’s forces against the movement.

Turkey condoned Daesh’s sex slavery, beheadings, and conquests; it harbored Daesh fighters, provided money and arms, explosives, purchased oil and helped Daesh organize combat operations.

Turkey has ridiculously attempted to claim that it is merely liberating towns from Daesh, while simultaneously naming its invasion Operation Euphrates Shield, since it is shielding the area west of the Euphrates from the Kurdish-led revolution.

Turkey’s goal is clear: destroy the capacity of the liberatory armed forces and put an end to the most promising revolutionary movement in the world. Every day that Turkish troops attack revolutionary operations aimed at liberating towns from Daesh are halted.

For those who have built a new life in liberated territory Turkey promises a return to the reactionary days of the past. But the revolution in Rojava has already faced great odds and excelled.

We, at NYC Anarchist Action, urge all people to increase resistance against Turkey and to support the struggle in Rojava as they carve out a way forward for the liberation of all humanity. We placed this banner in solidarity with the fighters of Rojava and in complicity with their struggle, over the FDR highway during the convening of the UN General Assembly in New York.

Rojava’s example will be expanded with action, not words!
Rojava will be the graveyard of Turkey and ISIS.

As they say, ‘Resistance is life, silence is death!’

Long live Rojava!
Long live free life!
