Turkey: Kurds mount resistance to war drive | World War 4 Report


Turkey: Kurds mount resistance to war drive | World War 4 Report: In the largely Kurdish city of Diyarbakır, residents on Aug. 20 started the first day of what will be a daily walkout to protest the internal war in Turkey. The Democratic Regions Party (DBP) has called for citizens of Diyarbakır to stop business as usual every day for five minutes to call a halt to the government's offensive. Neighborhoods in the city have declared their own autonomy, electing local assemblies. The Sur district of the city has seen intense street-fighting with the security forces since declaring self-government. (JINHA, Aug. 21) Leaders of the People's Democracy Party (HDP) and other pro-Kurdish parties were arrested as the autonomy declarations were announced. The co-mayors of the Kurdish-majority towns of Silvan and Sur (Diyarbakır province) were among those detained. A new HDP policy has two co-mayors, one female and one male, running towns controlled by the party. (MEM, Aug. 19)
