Turkey: Kurdish Mothers Tortured for Requesting Peace

On August 7, millions of people gathered at a meeting venue in Istanbul’s Yenikapi area for a joint demonstration called the “Democracy and Martyrs Rally” to protest the July 15 coup attempt.

The pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), the country’s third biggest party, was not allowed to attend.

The Turkish newspaper Hurriyet, covered the rally, declaring, “Millions stand for democracy in Turkey.”

    And those who refused to stand for Erosogan’s version of ‘democracy’ were quitely arrested.

    I wonder if Islam has anything to do with anything in this story ?

    Turkey….the sick man of Europe…but in a different context of course.
    I fear Turkeys convalescence may be a long cure….if there is one.

    Bear in mind my dear colleagues that that shit Blair (and Cuntess Merkel) only recently called for a speed up in Turkeys acceptance into the EU.

    Karma….spread your wings and descend upon the EU elites and especially that shit Tony Blair…
