Halte aux massacres à Sur en Turquie !

Appel urgent du HDP pour la levée du couvre-feu imposé sur le district de Sur depuis trois mois.

ATTENTION, certaines images peuvent heurter la sensibilité des plus jeunes ainsi que des personnes non averties.

A ce jour, 290 citoyens ont perdu la vie au cours des 58 couvre-feux imposés dans 21 villes, à travers 7 provinces kurdes. Déclaré par la préfecture de Diyarbakır le 2 décembre 2015, sans aucune base constitutionnelle, ni légale, le blocus sur le district de Sur, dans la province de Diyarbakir, est à son 91ème jour. 24 citoyens de Sur ont perdu la vie pendant ce couvre-feu. Ce chiffre représente uniquement les victimes qui ont pu être identifiées.

Durant des siècles, Sur a été le centre historique, culturel, social et économique de la ville de Diyarbakır. Le couvre-feu imposé dans ce district n’est rien de moins qu’un siège militaire qui viole ouvertement les droits et libertés fondamentaux, et en particulier le droit à la vie, le droit à la santé, le droit à l’éducation et la liberté de circulation. A Sur, la vie s’est arrêtée.

L’accès à l’eau et l’électricité est interrompu. Il en est de même pour les produits de première nécessité tels que les médicaments et le pain. Dans ce contexte alarmant – et sous les yeux du monde entier – des enfants, des femmes et des personnes âgées sont tués tous les jours. Des sites historiques et des lieux de culte appartenant au patrimoine de l’humanité sont détruits par les forces de sécurité appuyées par des groupes paramilitaires. La muraille de Diyarbakir inscrite au patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO a été endommagée par des tirs d’artillerie. La mosquée Kurşunlu, vieille de 500 ans, la mosquée historique d’Hasırlı, l’église syriaque Sainte Marie (1700 ans), l’église arménienne Surp Giragos et des églises protestantes figurent parmi les nombreux sites historiques détruits ou rendu inutilisables.

A Cizre, dans la province de Sirnak, 178 cadavres ont été extraits des sous-sols des immeubles bombardés tout au long des deux mois de siège sur la ville. Les membres des familles sollicités pour identifier les corps ont indiqué que ceux-ci étaient brûlés au point d’être méconnaissables. Nombre de ces dépouilles ont été envoyées par les autorités turques dans d’autres villes afin d’y être autopsiées, ce qui augmente encore plus la souffrance des familles.

La seule façon d’éviter que le massacre de Cizre se reproduise dans toute sa cruauté, sous le regard indifférent du monde, c’est de lever immédiatement le couvre-feu de Sur.  Le blocus militaire doit être levé pour que les personnes dont la vie est menacée puissent être évacuées en sécurité. Tout ce qui se déroule à Sur actuellement et tout ce qui pourrait s’y passer dans les jours à venir concerne l’humanité et la dignité humaine.

La stabilité en Turquie et au Moyen-Orient est de l’intérêt de tous les acteurs politiques internationaux.  Face aux évolutions dramatiques en Turquie, il est primordial de prendre une position claire en faveur de la liberté, de la paix et de la démocratie.

Nous appelons toutes les institutions et mouvements démocratiques à exprimer une réaction ferme face à la crise humanitaire et politique de Sur.

Figen Yüksekdag et Selahattin Demirtas, Coprésident-es du Parti démocratique des Peuples (HDP).

  1. I wished you would have made this post by adding with approaches of the all sides. There are 3 sides at the eastern of Turkey at these events. One of them civil public, second PKK terrorist organisation,and third Turkey police and army forces. And without certain knowledge, anyone should not add by blaming any side.

    For example I am wondering, if any terrorist organization like PKK was in any European country, and they would have created terror such as killing hundreds innocent people or burning villages, will any European country govern allow them? It would be kidding, the governments of Europe indeed would kill all them immedietly!

    You know me Earthling friend more or less anymore, and I have never been side by this govern. But as I said, do you really know how many of them at these pictures of the tweets are reflecting the truths? Do you know how many of them were killed by army or killed by PKK? Are you completly sure for these pictures are reflecting truths? I see more pictures and videos than those about the people at Cizre or Sur while they are saying that they have been killed by PKK, not Turkish Army.

    I see that I don’t know like yours even if I approach always with suspicion and look for truth, and while I am living and I experiences all in here on same lands. I guess, I might be blind:)

    And by the way, the upper map of Turkey by showing ethnics and religion’s groups is wrong. This is a wrong map. And the other side, this is exactly the similar maps of western imperialists made for their aims. It was very sad for me to see kind of this map on your blog…

    Anyway, I feel that I am talking non-essential right now…

    1. Hello Migo! The real issue is that people are dying there and this is more important that AKP’s politics against Kurds at the moment.

      This post’s purpose was not to compare Sultan’s politics with PKK.

      Why Turkey supports Palestinians (it shouldn’t be compared with ) and human rights elsewhere and not trying to find a solution to the Kurdish problem as giving them more autonomy and rights ? Of course Kurds want to create their proper state into Turkey. Is it time to find a peaceful solution to this without thinking about AKP’s % in the elections?

      And of course there is a big Kurdish community in Turkey and even if the map is not 100% exact it can give an idea of the situation there as posts and researches made help people understand the current situation in Turkey.

      The article was posted by the French left, people who always supported the accession of Turkey in the European Union. But Erdogan and his propaganda regime i don’t believe that they have any place in the EU right now!
      I don’t think that a democratic Turkey could be a threat to the EU. But who said that the Eu of today has a better democratic regime than Turkey? A nazi party in Greece is acting as they wish in Greece? press freedom in Poland /Hungary? austerity, EU stealing money from banks in Cyprus (i know a lot of people who lost their economies) ,contracts of 0 hours in the UK, the new labour law in France, the no-go zones in France where you are afraid to pass through during the night?

      But honestly i don’t think that Amnesty International and other human rights associations blame Erdogan just for politics! And people’s lifes count more than sterile politics in our world.

      I just give an image of the moment i received from Turkey and the same image has being received by some European MEP as well.

      And minorities exist as Turkmen in Syria, Muslim or Turkish minorities in Greece/ Bulgaria and elsewhere and a map is not always exact , population changes from time to time in some not so democratic regimes

      And again this is my opinion. Maybe people living “into” Turkey might know a little bit more which they would like to share with us which are always welcome.

      However, this map and put another one showing only Kurdish minority in Turkey ,Iraq and Syria for less confusion.

      1. “Is it time to find a peaceful solution to this without thinking about AKP’s % in the elections?” Yes, but it would be never happen under these circumstances. Because it is too much complicated. No one can imagine. You mention AKP votes. Do you know before last election how much vote AKP got at that region, so at south eastern Anatolia. Two years ago, and before AKP and Kurdish parties, like BDP(previous name HDP) and after HDP were getting same vote rate. %50-%50 during 15 years.Even some of them AKP %60. But 6 months ago everything was changed.

        Today, I believe Kurdish people have got the right of the own country. But I don’t believe this will be solution for them. Because the real problem of this part of Anatolia is not about they don’t have own country. The real problem are religion communities and terror. Yes, we can blame the govern policy for they couldn’t find a solution for terrorism. But for the religion communities, we blame to whom? They all created for green belt project by USA govern after cold war. And there are so many.

        Lets say, ok HDP and the other Kurdish politicians made this and they established the Kurdish state at the region. What will happen?
        1 years ago, 2 years ago, 3 years ago, and before every year Hezbollah, PKK and BDP (previous name HDP), HDP were meeting at Diyarbakir with over 1 million people participant. They want every year that Sheria came back.

        Today 70% members and deputies of HDP are wanting Sheria and Islamic government ! I am sure you didn’t know this. Almost everyday one of deputies of HDP gives speech for this. For example recently, one of HDP deputies gave a reaction for a banner. And he said “the girl who is child can marriage, and this is proper for Islam”
        Yes, child girl can marriage with older man! This is what they think!

        And the economy issue at the region.

        2/5 of all Turkey economy belongs to Kurdish riches. They do have many industrial and other business, but they rarely invest at the region. And you can imagine what a huge number 2/5 of all economy. Why they don’t do this. They do have many lands and they run the people like slave at the region. There is still feudalism at the region. This is becuase of them.

        The other side, HDP has always supported USA policy at the region, still it is.

        If you think with all I saying, do you think “this HDP and Kurdish notables will bring the peace at the region, is that so?”

        Under these circumstances, if Kurdish state would be establish by all part of the game, it will be worse than right now!

        If you ask me, what is the solution Migo? My answer would be “the solution is the SOCIALIST govern for all Anatolia people.” Not this govern type. Because, if socialism does not come to these lands, the solution will never be, not just for Anatolia, for the all region.

        Also,

        You said, “The article was posted by the French left, people who always supported the accession of Turkey in the European Union.” Despite Erdogan! You are kidding me? Which left would be support Erdogan? This can be never true my Earthling friend. LEFT has got not this mentality!

        “..population changes from time to time in some not so democratic regimes…However, this map and put another one showing only Kurdish minority in Turkey…”

        If you think like that, what if I say right now, “Turkish people population more than Kurdish people at south eastern Anatolia 30 years ago on the contrary right now.” If you want I can send the documents about this. So in this case, if there was any anti democratic situation at there, how Kurdish population grown up 4 times more than Turkish population?

        And this map is still wrong, and if you want I can send real one.

        Already, you can always ask me, want me what do you want to know, if you want to make a post which has not one-sided view. It is not neccesary to wait of my sharing. Your questions are always welcome too.

      2. There are too many links but I don’t know how much they tproper that would be excepted as serious source by France left, my Earthling friend. We at east, accept these sources as serious, but we also know that the western propaganda tools tend to not see these with same way. They always claim that they know much better everything even more than the public on the east lands. But I believe the truths will come out the light one day.

        Anyway, if I turn back your question. Here its answer:

        HDP’s first name was DEHAP(1997-2005) and HADEP(1994-2002), after new party with coalition DEHAP-HADEP has been DTP(2005-2009), after it was named BDP(2009-2014) and then at todays, its name is HDP anymore(2014- until today), all the same political structure into these years.

        Here some of speech examples form HDP deputies:

        Altan Tan: He is HDP deputy now. But his political life dates to old times, he came from HADEP, after BDP deputy, and now HDP.
        While he was BDP deputy, he made a call to Tayyip Erdogan, by offering to establish Sharia Court.
        “Let’s we discuss what are the rigts of Kurdish according to Islamic Law, and we would discuss this subject by establishing Sharia Court”
        the news about this:
        http://haber.sol.org.tr/devlet-ve-siyaset/altan-tan-basbakana-seriat-divani-kurmayi-onerdi-haberi-63763

        Altan Tan almost every week gives a similar speech like that, already he never rejected these, beside he seems always proud with his Islamic side.

        Adem Geveri: He is new HDP deputy.
        He made a speech about parliamentary oath:
        “At the first legislation our first priority is to eliminate this oath which is fascist, monistic, disbelieving, also incompatible with Islamic laws”

        the news about this:
        http://odatv.com/hdpnin-islamci-vekilinden-cok-konusulacak-aciklamalar-0512151200.html

        When we look at Adem Gevgeri personel carrier, we see that he carried his duty as Secretary General of Azadi Movement and Kurdistan Islamic Movement during many years.

        What is the Azadi Movement, here their link:
        https://www.facebook.com/hareketaazadi/

        This is one of the Islamic communities part at the region. There are too many like these communities.

        Already, Selahattin Demirtas gave a statement about Azadi Movement before June election,
        what was he saying after he spoke with Azadi movement at press conferance:
        “God willing, our candidate Adem Ozcan will represent to Azadi Movement with HDP identity at parliament”
        http://www.cnnturk.com/turkiye/demirtas-azadi-hareketi-hdp-kimligiyle-parlamentoda-insallah

        This is not only one example for Demirtas. He and the others made/make a lot of meeting with Islamic communities.

        Here another one, also HDP had made it tweet.

        this example is about “Oze Donus Platformu” with Demirtas and HDP deputies contact.

        What is “Oze Donus Platformu”? here their link: http://www.ozedonus.com.tr/

        Already HDP is one of biggest supporters of Democratic Islam Congress, you can see at the below link while one of important woman deputies of HDP Gultan Kısanak is sitting among them, the below link,

        http://haber.sol.org.tr/turkiye/hdpnin-destekledigi-demokratik-islam-kongresi-21-ilde-kutlu-dogum-etkinligi-duzenleyecek

        The other participant of this congress, HDP Siirt deputy Prof. Dr Kadri Yildirim, HDP Istanbul deputy Huda Kaya, HDP Kars deputy Ayhan Bilgen.

        Here link about this:
        https://www.cihan.com.tr/tr/demokratik-islam-kongresi-1968786.htm

        And they do have very interesting relationship with Hezbollah.

        It was able to see the “holy birth of Mohammed” meeting every year at Diyarbakir with over one million people participant, and we were able to see the people who gave the votes to HDP and Hezbollah side by side.

        Already, last year Abdullah Ocalan(so-called leftist leader of PKK) gave a statement about the activity of “holy birth of Mohammed”

        “Turkish people should know that common life of Turkish and Kurdish people is based on brotherhood and solidarity under the Islam flag about 1000 years.”

        But there are some conflicts, and most important has been experienced among them(Hezbollah and PKK) last summer. Sometimes they make peace, sometimes they fight with each other.

        But very important PKK member Murat Karayilan made very important statement at Sterk TV by going live programe from Qandil Mountains, he said that at 3 september 2015 at live broadcast:
        “Hezbollah should know that we never gave any instruction against them, they should join Kurdish struggle, we must act as a nation.”

        So what we should understand this? If Karayilan says “we never gave any instuction against them” so is it means, they never fought with them?

        Anyway, there are too many informations and speeches but I tried to summerize for you as I could. I hope these would be usefull for you. And I want to repeat, the biggest problem of these lands is the Islamic communities and their power. There is not any big danger more than the other problems at Anatolia. And HDP is not a leftist party.
