you provided World. This

cornerstone of all our democracies. This
is where parliamentarians have gradually invented what a party, a
platform and Finally a majority.»
Sarkozy has forgotten it was France and England which divided Kurdistan in
1916, the truth is that the misfortune of Kurdistan between the superpowers

We writers of Kurdistan, members of the French section PEN KURD in
France we ask for your intervention with the Turkish authorities and
Syrian, Iranian to ensure that our Kurdish people can celebrate its
National Day on Newroz. 2008. We ask you Mr. President your intervention
with the authorities of Turkey and Syria and Iran
in accordance with the Constitution of the USA and the UN Charter and
the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that the right to
self-determination of the nation of Kurdistan is respected under
international law. In the history of mankind, intervention by the United
States in alliance with the anti-Hitler coalition in the USSR
in the fight against fascism and German destruction of the regime of
Saddam Hussein fasciste is identical and has a role ' historical. It is a
victory for the USA, and for we writers of Kurdistan use of military
potentiel USA and the UK in the fight against fasciste and colonialiste
regime of Saddam is the fundament the Kurdo-American alliance in the
particularity of the process Revolution of Kurdistan.
your speech dated March 19 you said Dear
President G W Bush «Today,
in light of the challenges we have faced in Iraq, some look back and call
this period the easy part of the war. Yet there was nothing easy about it.
The liberation of Iraq took incredible skill and amazing courage. And the
speed, precision and brilliant execution of the campaign will be studied by
military historians for years to come.
our troops found in Iraq following Saddam's removal was horrifying. They
uncovered children's prisons, and torture chambers, and rape rooms where
Iraqi women were violated in front of their families. They found videos
showing regime thugs mutilating Iraqis deemed disloyal to Saddam. And across
the Iraqi countryside they uncovered mass graves of thousands executed by
we acted, Saddam Hussein no longer fills fields with the remains of innocent
men, women and children. Because we acted, Saddam's torture chambers and
rape rooms and children's prisons have been closed for good. Because we
acted, Saddam's regime is no longer invading its neighbors or attacking them
with chemical weapons and ballistic missiles. Because we acted, Saddam's
regime is no longer paying the families of suicide bombers in the Holy Land.
Because we acted, Saddam's regime is no longer shooting at American and
British aircraft patrolling the no-fly zones and defying the will of the
United Nations. Because we acted, the world is better and United States of
America is safer;»
fully agree, but this approach is valid for T Erdogan Abdullah Gul in Turkey
for Ahmedn, edjat For Iran and Bashar al-Assad in Syria, contrary to your
statement I think that the founding of an independent state of Kurdistan
is not a detriment of the People

Dear President George
The respect of Human Rights plays an important role and is
interesting more and more people in modern societies. In the international
sphere, the fact that Human Rights and democratic principles define the
International Relations is a concept accepted by every society appearing as
The international organizations are the arena of the discussions
about the breach of the Human Rights which mostly are topical. Turkey , due
especially to its illtreatment against kurdish people is often with other
countries on the top of the list of the violation of Human Rights.
Member of the United Nations, the NATO and the European Council,
associated to the European Union, Turkey is less a democracy respecting the
expression differences as it is a real european state. That's the reason for
which the fight for democracy of kurdish people seems to be an impossible
mission. After seventy years of persecution, after all these massacres,
deportations, summary death proceedings, tortures and forbiddings , after
the horrible consequences of the "special war" lead for more than
ten years in Kurdistan, an improvment of turkish mentality during the very
next years seems to be more and more impossible. In a such repressive
turkish context, a nation needs courage to require its elementary rights.
The fact that a few assimilated Kurds have some of the highest places
in the bureaucracy ,- these Kurds who have given up their national identity
as they are used to show pro-turkish nationalist ideas , more cruel then
their masters- doesn't deny that regle. Though Ankara's officials claim that
" any distinction between Turks and Kurds exist and that they have the
same rights" seven members of Turkish Parlement, belonging to the
Social Populist Party (SHP)were fired as they had attended a conference in
Paris in 1989 about Kurdistan. In the whole history, there were 28 uprisings
against central authorities and these revolts have been hushed up in blood.
The Movement for Liberation National of the Kurdistan.
During your meeting with Recep Tayip Erdogan on 5th November you
announced that the PKK was the joint enemy of the USA and Turkey. On 8th
January you repeated these words during your meeting with President Abdullah
writers of Kurdistan we have no confidence in the political ed your country
for two raison. USA sold chemical weapons in Iran and Iraq, the CIA and the
Shah of Iran have left our people in the hands criminals Saddam in 1975 and
1991In other words, it seems very logical to use the military potential of
amaricains and British against the Saddam regime ed for democracy, but our
ideal is to establish the independent state of Kurdistan we do not want to
be co; loon other states Turkey, Iran and Syria including the USA.
We surprised Sir President George
W.Bush your offensive
Call Dana Perino Peter MacMahon. This person has no scientific
knowledge about Kurdistan, it seems to me as a
illiterate, despite a communication master How why she said that the PKK is
danger to the USA? You can see that we are a nation of 45 million. This
party has never pursued a strategy of armed struggle against the USA. It was
NATO and the USA who helped the Turkish style and our to day
is subjected to genocide? The question that arises is what your
spokesman Dana Periono
is for the genocide of the people of Kurdistan?
is your response to Mr. President that Kurdish children Cuneyt
tortured and bass broken by Turkish police? If it were your son or
son of Dana Perino me what was your reaction, it is a member of the PKK? If
not, why these crimes geurre? Crimes against Humanity why your government
has not condemned these crimes colonialist Turkish state?
truth I am not a member of the PKK, but there is a scientific and
sociological reality, I am a philosopher born in the region of North
Kurdistan in Dersim, on the order of Mustafa Kemal in 1937, 250 families in
the side of my Mother Meleka Hemede Silemani tribe of
Demenu twere killed and burnt with the gas and 52 children were shot
and three people in my family were hanged and is a scientific and academic
responsibility to write to you in behalf of the writers of my country in the
name of my people.The
PKK is a political party with the most popular support in Kurdistan and
everywhere where Kurdish people live. The PKK is a people's movement and at
the forefront in the Kurdish struggle for freedom. By declaring the Kurdish
struggle for freedom 'terrorist' you are not only insulting the Kurds but
you are also putting them in opposition. The consequence of this is not only
the negative effect it has on the USA's already tarnished reputation in the
Middle East, but it is also in conflict with US interests. By adopting this
stance, you are becoming the collaborators of Turkey's policies of
assimilation and annihilation which are implemented through the most
inhumane of methods such as torture, forced migration and genocide.
Kurds are not and do not want to be enemies with the USA. The Kurds, just
like any other people, want to live freely in their country. The PKK is the
defender of these rights.
we simply cannot understand on what foundations you are basing your claims.
The PKK, in its thirty year struggle, has never targeted a single American
citizen or American interests. On 17th November, your assistant to the
Foreign Secretary Matthew Bryza, in a statement made to the Turkish Press,
acknowledged that 'the PKK had not attacked a single American, and declaring
the PKK an enemy would only put us at risk'.
as good as anyone else, must know that the Kurdish problem is a historical
problem awaiting a solution; you know that it is not merely a terrorism or
security problem, you know that it is a struggle of a people that have not
even been given the most basic of rights and it is a struggle for very
existence. I would also like to remind you that your current position only
condones the gridlock seeking militarist approach of the Turkish State which
can only mean further loss of life..
the past week our people in Kurdistan North participations with millions of
citizens with the deputy of the Party of the Company democratie__DTP
celebrated the Feast But today but; the Turkish security forces have
attacked the civilian population, hundreds of Kurds are hospital; women and

Kurdish New Year Day is called Newroz, which means a new day. It coincides
with the beginning of the spring – 21st March, and its celebration marks
the affirmation of the Kurdish national identity and freedom. Newroz has
been forbidden in Turkey until the beginning of 1990s when the president
Turgut Ozal, who was with half Kurdish origin, declared this day as
“Turkish holiday called Nevruz”. The Turks accepted Newroz as Turkish
“Nevruz” after that more then hundred civilians have been killed during
the Newroz celebration in 1992.
21st and 22nd March 2008 several hundred thousand Kurds celebrated Newroz in
many Kurdish cities, but also in Turkish cities as Istanbul, Izmir, Adana
and Mersin. Several hundred people have been arrested during the
celebrations; many ten of them have been injured by the security forces in
Van, Siirt and Hakkari. One Kurd has been reported to killed.
Dozens were injured and 300 detained Saturday as police used truncheons and

President Slams Syrian Regime For Killing Three Kurds
President of Southern Kurdistan, Massoud Barzani, has condemned an incident

in Qamishli in Syrian-occupied Kurdistan on Thursday night when a group of
Kurdish youths were celebrating Newroz.

northern, Kurdish-dominated region, following violence over the weekend,
which left three people dead. The killing occurred during celebration of the
Kurdish New Year - Newroz - in the city Qameshli close to the border with
Turkey, according to several local news sources.
know that Dear President G W
BUSH , The United
States condemns the attack on the Kurdish Syrian population by Syrian
security forces that left three civilians dead and others severely injured
in the northeastern city of Qamishli following the March 20 Nowruz
celebrations. We call upon the Syrian government to refrain from using
violent measures to repress Kurdish civilians and to open a full,
independent investigation of the incident.
court has sentenced four Kurds to prison terms of up to 10 years on charges
of seeking to annex parts of the country to a separate state, a human rights
group said on Monday."Hamid Suleiman Mohammed and Adnan Muwaymesh were
jailed for 10 years and Ibrahim Haj Yussef and Ahmed Hassan Habash for
seven," the National Organisation for Human Rights in Syria said in a
state security court convicted the four of "seeking through their
actions, plans or writings to break away areas of Syrian territory so that
they can be annexed to an independent state."The four were arrested in
March 2006 after taking part in a demonstration in the town of Afrin, north
of Syria's second city of Aleppo, on the eve of celebrations for the Kurdish
new year holiday of Newroz.They were originally accused of attacking a
security force patrol in the town, which lies in the heavily Kurdish region
of Kurd Dagh, the rights group said.The state security court also sentenced
two suspected Sunni Islamists to two-year jail terms for "inciting
communal and ethnic tensions."

and arrested many Syrian Kurds in Qamishli
without any warning, the police opened fire at the peacefully celebrating
crowd. Although there had been women and children among them the shots were
fired arbitrarily in the Kurdish city Qamishli in Syrian-occupied-Kurdistan
(we received short film shows the way of killing the Kurds). While the world
is paying attention to what is happening in Tibet, the Syrian Regime is
killing innocent civilians.. The Kurds have responded with protests in
various areas of Western Kurdistan, which has led to further increase of
security and moving thousands of military forces to Aleppo, Qamishli,
Hasakah, Kobani and Efrin.We at the Western Kurdistan Government condemn the
violence and the new massacre of Syrian regime on the people in Western
Kurdistan and demand the immediate withdrawal of all Syrian forces from
Western Kurdistan. We demand a full investigating from the UN, the EU and
the USA.We are wondering; why the world supports human rights in Tibet when
at the same time a fascist regime as Syria has a free hand on killing
Kurds!! HumanRights are universal: What is good for Tibet is also good for
Kurdistan.We expect from the United Sates, European Union, and the rest of
the free world to remove the Syrian regime from power, the second Baath
regime, to takeserious measures in democratizing the country so the both
main nationalities in Syria, Arabs and Kurds, could enjoy freedom and
equality with two federal governments for the Arabs and for the Kurds. At
the same time we would like to encourage the Kurdish people in Syria to
doeverything in their capacity to obtain their natural right of self
determination and to ask for referendum as the peoples of Kosovo and
Montenegro. Assad's Dictator Regime killed three Kurds in Qamishli

NEWRUZ IN NORTH KURDISTAN
Dear President G W Bush,
For Amnesty International There were continuing reports of
fatal shootings of civilians by members of the security forces. The usual
explanation for these killings was that the victims had failed to obey a
warning to stop, but such killings often demonstrated disproportionate use
of force and in some cases may have amounted to extrajudicial executions.
There were concerns about Article 16 in the revised Law to Fight Terrorism
which failed to be explicit that lethal force could only be used when
strictly unavoidable to protect life. There were fears that Article 16,
which permitted the "direct and unhesitating" use of firearms to
"render the danger ineffective", could further hinder thorough and
impartial investigations into shootings by members of the security forces.
of the security forces continued to use excessive force during the policing
of demonstrations. Demonstrations in March in Diyarbak¹r, to mark the
funeral ceremony of four PKK members, escalated into violent protests. Ten
people, including four minors, were killed, eight of them from gunshot
wounds. Many demonstrators and police officers were injured. Investigations
into the killings were continuing at the end of the year. The demonstrations
spread to neighbouring cities; two demonstrators were shot dead in the town
of Kiziltepe, a stray bullet killed a boy aged three in the city of Batman,
and in Istanbul three women died when a bus crashed after being set on fire
by demonstration .In September a bombing in a park in Diyarbak¹r resulted
in 10 deaths. The perpetrators were unknown.»
One area has been an increase in reported cases of torture and
ill-treatment. It was emphasised that security forces have carried out
extrajudicial killings and that most of those responsible have been left
unpunished. The report
also described conditions in prisons as “poor, with problems of
overcrowding and insufficient staff training.”
a press conference he held yesterday after a meeting with Prime Minister of
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Ralph Gonsalves, Erdoðan said DTP
officials had recently demanded to meet with him to discuss the Kurdish
issue. "As the prime minister of the Turkish Republic, I cannot have
talks with the DTP unless they designate the outlawed PKK a terrorist
organization," he said.

and EU fear for Kurdish-Turkish war…The United States and the European
Union fear a prolonged military campaign inside Iraq would raise the risk of
serious clashes between Turkish and Iraqi Kurdish forces and also undermine
the fragile U.S.-backed government in Baghdad. U.S. Defense Secretary Robert
Gates said earlier that Turkey's campaign would not solve its problems with
the rebels and urged Ankara to take political and economic steps to isolate
the PKK. However USA is the biggest supporter to the Turkish army with its
military intelligence and wapens. The
civil war between Turkish army and Kurdish-PKK guerrilla has coast around
30-40,000 live since PKK launched its armed struggle in 1984.

The Turkish army generals who are actually running the Turkish estate
behind the scenes have influenced the Turkish Parliament to decide on 17th
October 07, on the name of Turkish people and their governments, to violate
the sovereignty of Iraq by crossing its border.
the unsuccessful wide ranged attacks of the Turkish army launched with most
recent arms technology during the recent years, they have started an even
wider attack on Friday 21st February 08 violating again the
sovereignty of Iraq by attacking Kurdistan.
Turkish regime attacked this time with 100,000 troops, tanks, artillery and
war planes with most recent technology violating again the borders of
another neighboring country and thus once again ignoring all the
international agreements while the whole international community and the
democratic forces are watching but almost turning a blind eye over what
Turkey is doing apart from few voices asking them to withdraw.
has been few days that the Turkish army is targeting the areas with
civilians' populations and damaging roads and bridges in Kurdistan and thus
damaging its infrastructure. By doing so it has become apparent that the
intention of the Turkish authority is not only PKK but the destruction of
our people's achievements in South Kurdistan as declared by few Turkish army
and authority sources through media channels recently.
Turkish military attacks and their regime's hostile attitude do not only
bring war and destruction on our people but attacking all the values of

world to stand up for the values of humanity and try to put an end to ugly
attacks of the Turkish regime and its army against our peace loving people.

killing, destroying, and attacking those wanting to preserve, promote and
practice their culture are attacks against the values of humanity in
Kurdish nation like any other nation in the world has the right to live
freely on its land Kurdistan to practice its culture and live peacefully
with its surroundings.
Kurdish PEN Centre is therefore calling upon the progressive freedom loving
forces in the world, the United Nations and all the PEN centers and the head
office through Writers in Peace Committee of the International PEN Writers
to condemn the attacks of the Turkish regime and their army generals.
Dear. President G William Bush we kindly ask you to intervener with the Turkish authorities and Syria; Iran to stop the aggression against the Kurdish people, respect fundamental rights of the nation of Kurdistan and find our previous report demonstrating that since 1994 until this day nothing has changed in Turkey and in Syria.

and call Turkey for dialogue to solve the
Kurdish question in Turkey
America-Kurdistan Friendship League (AKFL) condemns
Turkey's shelling of the Kurdish Villages and crossing into Iraq's northern
Kurdish region in a bid to crack-down on Kurdish rebels who are battling
Ankara. It condemns any violence in the region and urges Turkey to adopt a
peaceful and political approach to resolving the Kurdish question within
Turkey. Furthermore, we call upon Turkey to pull out its troops from the
Kurdish Region immediately. The AKFL urges the US administration and the
world community to put an end to maintaining the status quo or ignoring the
Kurdish question in the Middle East. The AKFL considers any comprehensive
peace deal in the Middle East to be destined for failure if it does not
address the Kurdish issue. It is now necessary to address the fate of 40-45
millions Kurds living in the region at the same intensity as that being
provided to other nations.

the trap of enemy's press lies. This press is controlled by the chief of
general staff and Turkish intelligence. Our moral values not allow to hide
our martyrs but to announce them immediately because they are source of
proud and power that inspires us, and we declare them with much proud and

Commandership Headquarters published the war balance for September. The war
balance includes numbers from clashes with both the Turkish and the Iranian
from the war balance:
the recent aggression of Turkish army into Iraqi Kurdistan Region, a
spokesman from the office of Kurdistan region president issued a statement
which bellow is a full text: 
days of 21th and 22th February, 2008, Kurdistan president, Mr. Masoud
Barzani paid a visit to the Kurdish province Duhok. During a meeting with
relevant administration and military officials of the area, and following
being informed of borders situation and discussing latest development
subsequent to Turkish assaults into Kurdistan Region , it shed light on the
point that Kurdistan region will not side either Turkish or PKK fights.
any aggression against a citizen of Kurdistan region or any settlement, the
necessary order has been made for a whole defense and for this aim full
readiness has been taken as well." The statement said.
we are doubtful about the real intention of Turkish attacks which aims at
Kurdistan Region not PKK, otherwise the destruction of those bridges locates
in depth of reconstructed areas and being used by citizens what do they have
link to PKK.?" HPG guerrillas shot down Turkish Cobra helicopter
According Popular Defense Forces Kurdistan (HPG), they have brought
down a Turkish Cobra helicopter during first days of Turkish army occupation
in Federal Kurdistan.The attack to Turkish helicopter take place in Zap
region in Federal Kurdistan region.
In a press
release, HPG informed that the helicopters were bombarding guerrilla bases.
To counter this, a group of HPG special force guerrillas in white camouflage
under the cover of brought down Turkish Cobra helicopter.
first deny the news but later after video and photo show from HPG had to
accept the they lost a Cobra helicopter and 3 Turkish officers has been
killed after the HPG attack. The
Turkish Army has lost many helicopters during the long war with Kurdish
guerrilla in Turkish part of Kurdistan region. 
forces and the legitimate fight of the kurdish people abolished the taboo
over the kurdish question . Since 1984, once again, the Kurds have been
taking up their duties and asserting intensively , with all their forces,
their national identity. In that period of time, one could believe that the
kurdish problem would be solved, that question waiting for an answer for
seventy years. The late president of the Turkish Republic , Mister Ozal
claimed:"For seventy years, this problem is poisining our political
life" and called to bring the recognizing of the kurdish
identity.Consequently he made a public debate in which the different
solutions to that question. - with respect of the state's frontiers and the
democracy- were topical.
March 1993, the Movement for National Liberation of the Kurdistan,suggests
an unilateral ceasefire. Ozal wants to take measures for the dialogue and
the peace. Unfortunately, he couldn't have enough time to bring these
measures to real life since he died.
Ozal's death , things have changed and the hope of the dialogue and peace
after Ozal, Miss Ciller chose the oldest policy according which "There
were neither Kurds nor kurdish problem in Turkey. There is only one problem;
terrorism to be eradicated with steadfastness." She will give her
agreement for military operations in Kurdistan.
The political parties founded by Kurdish delegates were forbidden and
became targets of the Contre-guerilla forces' terrible attacks, making 74
victims among the national or local leaders.
Miss Ciller did have no difficulties for claiming such things,
because the Turkish Constitution and its laws express such things very
clearly. There's still in Turkey a system of "jure" and "de
facto" which denies the identity of kurdish people.
This denial is not only political , it is naturally part of a
sevent-year old tradition. As a brief study of the turkish juridicial system
can show; since the declaration of independence and the republic, laws have
been prepared without any weakness points and any chance for Kurds. Special
laws prevent the Kurds or those with a kurdish identity from having the
fundamental rights and being free.
course neither the Constitution nor the penal code use the word
"Kurd" and at the same time, kurdish nationality and kurdish
are the words used against those who threaten the national and
territorial integrity of the state.
ignores agreements and international treaties.In addition to its refusal for
recognizing the existence of kurdish people, Turkey is unable to warrant
conditions of life conforming to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
That appears clearly when we compare the Turkish laws with international
Conventions. Moreover a comparison between the international law and the
turkish national law show that the turkish government has a racist policy of
assimilation against its kurdish population. That kind of poliey seems to
exist only in Turkey.
these facts, the turkish state is keeping on claiming to the whole world
that the Kurds are under any pression in Turkey, that they are not a
minoritary population but real citizens. These shameless lies are declared
to the whole world. By that lack of respect and with such a denying, noone
may discuss or accuse the turkish government unless paying that insult with
citizen of Turkish extraction has all the rights recognized by the turkish
national law and the international law: the right for an education in
turkish language, the right for creating political parties or to be a member
of these parties, the right for expressing his thoughts in turkish language
through the means of communication as the television, radio or the press.
The citizen of Kurdish extraction, in fact, has no other right than becoming
silent and saying that he's turkish.
a judicial systeme with such huge injustices never existed except in the
dictatorships and totalitarian regimes. Depite its iniquitous judicial
system, its totalitarian constitution and its restrictive legislation
against individual freedom, Turkey is yet a part of the democracies `
aware of the summary and totalitarian system of this country, some
governments and some of the International Organizations are still going on
accepting Turkey as a democracy and keeping relations on the political,
eceonomical and military spheres whereas they should ban it. These ones, by such
policies, are doing nothing else than supporting the turkish policy of
dehumanization and extermination against Kurdish people in Kurdistan.
Regarding the gravity and urgency of the situation, if any coercitive
measures are not taken rapidly against Turkey in order to stop the war lead
by this state in Kurdistan, it can balance off and put in danger the peace
in a region which is allready fragile. A general scorching or more can then
victims of the war....
Kurdistan has been the fighting field of a pityless war for eleven years
now. This war which never stopped to grow is admitted by the turkish press
(which doesn't hesitate to support clearly the turkish army in that war), by
the President of the Republic; by the Prime Minister and the Minister of
Internal Affairs as it is by the Chief of the General Staff.
spite of such a recognizing, it is very important to underline the fact that
Turkey still refuse to comply with the Geneva Convention of 1949 and the
additional protocoles of 1977 concerning the war prisoners and the civilians
in opposition to The Movement for National Liberation
which has been enforcing these rules since the first years of this
years of war mean eleven years of distress, of sufferings and misery for the
kurdish women. These years were the years of rapes, imprisonments and
tortures. Such a horrible and unbearable situation is found in a few miles
from the Western societies, who preferred being tolerant against the terror
policy of the Turkish State.
these eleven years of war, thousends of Kurds were imprisoned, among which
three thousend of intellectuals, writers, reporters, researchers and
trade-unionists. Some of them were killed by the DeathSquadrons.
were burnt and depopulated. More than five million Kurds were obliged to the
exodus and other thousands - among which women and childres-, were crowded
in concentration camps.
The situation of women....
in Kurdistan are one of the important targets of the "special war"
. She's the victim of military operations , bombs and mines. She's at the
saea time one of the victims of concentration camps.
fact that the kurdish woman became the principle target of the turkish State
is far from being unsignificant. She was chosed because she's the symbol of
honnor in the kurdish society.
the growing importance of the Fight for National Liberation, the military
regime , by choosing women, was trying to push the Kurds to apathy and
is hard to give the right number of raped women, but in order to humiliate
the kurdish woman and the Kurds in general, the rape was the favourite
weapon of turkish soldiers.
such abominable and vile crimes, the soldiers, the policemen and the
torturers were acting freely conforming to the fifteenth article of the
antiterrorist law; any suite can be engaged against the members of the
reason which explains the turkish attacks against the kurdish woman is that
she gives life. So the medical teams sent to Kurdistan try to stop the
births by sterilisation practices, the same as those used by nazi doctors on
jewish and tsigane women during the Second World War.
woman is also the principal victim as she stayed alone in cities, villages
and concentration camps in order to assume the responsabilities of a whole
family. The medical structures are fast non-existent. There is no medical
aid in neither refugee camps nor in shantytowns -which don't stop growing
with the whole refugee flows.
kurdish woman has no medical aid during her pregnancy , no medical aid
during the labour (see document number 1). It is very important to
remark that a great number of women have a breech presentation because of
the violences and brutal methods of turkish militaries, so the babies die.
(see document number 2)
families who were obliged to be exiled in kurdish cities like Diyarbakir,
Bingôl or Van and in turkish metropoles like Istanbul, Adana or Aydin, are
living under precarious conditions.
they arrive in shantytowns and try desperately to live in wood huts or in
very little old plastic tents. They have neither water nor electricity in
these places. Unable to bear nomore such a catastrophical situation, these
families expressed by thousends their wishes to go back and live in their
natal villages. But these wishes can only be carried out if some emergency
measures are taken rapidly in order to stop that "dirty war" which
has made until today thousands of victims.
Destiny of the children....
children are said to be the future of a nation. Can we promise a future to
the children in a context of war? If yes, what kind of future can this be?
We shall be more watchful concerning their education in that context of war
as in a normal time in order to prepare them to the future.
Kurdistan, there's after all a high rate of infantile mortality, which is
the result of the lack of medical care during the pregnancy and after the
labour. The children benefit from no medical aid. This situation brings a
great number of infantile afflictions which give a higher rate of infantile
mortality. Concerning the children who survive despite all the lacks and
diseases, they live with the permanent stress afflicted by the war.They
usually grow up alone with their mothers because their father has been
killed or imprisoned or fled to Europe or in other cases had joined the
kurdish Resistance.This make the children aware of the responsabilities in a
very young age. A 11-12 year old boy becomes also the chief or the man of
his family and replaces his father. He begins to work as a labour in
workships, buildings or factories.
consequence of the war is the decline of the scholarship in Kurdistan. It's
true that kurdish children had never an education in their own language and
the schools teaching in turkish language are the best places for the
official ideological propaganda.
the children could learn how to read and how to write. Nowadays most of the
schools are closed and those, who still are open, are used as military
barracks. Therefore one can nomore provide schooling to kurdish children.
in order to control the kurdish children, the turkish state has taken new
consist on sending the children in internal schools directed by military
leaders or in religious schools which are in fact real centers for
brainwashing. The children sent there are carefully chosen. According to the
general law, they are coming from families near to the kurdish Resistance.
The goal of such proceedings is of course to assimilate and make them more
turkish as the Turks themselves in a short period of time. Formerly the
Ottomans were doing the saine thing against Christian children in order to
convert them into Islam.
effords engaged in that policy by Miss Ciller are very significant. In fact,
while Miss Ciller uses against the West the Islamic threaten in order to put
the kurdish question in the second rank of the discussions, she allows the
development of coranic schools on the other hand.
kurdish children are sent there against their willings in order to follow a
coranic teaching. Consequently a great number of orphans of the war are
pushed towards the fundamentalist terrorist groups. The Hezbullah, the
fundamentalist part of turkish Secret Services,became a specialist of
recruitment of kurdish children.
it can be remarked, the consequences of these eleven years of war are
particulary significant on children. Therefore as far as the governmentssaid
to be democratic- will go on regarding their own interests as much more
important then a fight for freedom and the respect of Human Rights and
providing Turkey for weapons, the kurdish children are bound to undergo the
brutalities and sufferings of this war impressed on kurdish people against
its own willing.
kurdish children are killed by american weapons, crushed by
german , french or english panzers, and
tortured with the materials produced in Switzerland or in the Netherlands.
supporting in this way, such a state which openly jeers at the Human Rights
and which commits barbarian acts and crimes against the humanity, these
countries stand as guarantor for Turkey and consequently become its
it into consideration, it is also important to underline that though the
effords of the institutions and kurdish organisations in different european
countries, any serious and concrete measure has been taken until today by
the competent international organisations. If they could fulfill expertise
reports on the area, they would have see the gravity of the situation and
the real damages on kurdish children.
such a mission is one of the abilities of a prestigious and credible
organisation such as the UNICEF, we are convinced that this one could take
the initiatives in that way in order to define the emergency needs of
kurdish children, in order to compensate the damages or to decrease their
consequences and anticipate the others.
The attacks of the state against legal kurdish organisations , the
institutions, the political parties and dissident persons.
parties, the newspapers, the organisations for Humans Rights, the
trade-unions, the scientists and the writers who are trying to make the
kurdish voice heard, are the victims of the democratic platform , the most
touched by turkish extermination policy.
draw the international public opinion attention on the violations of Human
Rights, they keep their close relationships with international organisations
and refuse the state's military policy for the kurdish question, requiring a
political and democratical solution and applying for the Brotherhood between
the kurdish and turkish peoples.
Ozgür Gündem and Ôzgür Ü1ke:Voices of the Fight for Democracy, Freedom
and Brotherhood. Opposed to the
policy of turkish authorities and read by a great number of Kurds, the daily
newspaper Ozgür Ülke, published in Europe, in Turkey; in Kurdistan,
followed the newspaper Ôzgür Gündem. This one, founded in May 31st 1992,
stopped its publication on April 14th 1994, due to the pressions and attacks
against it. However, two weeks later the newspaper Ozgür Ülke began to be
edited , following the same objective as Ôzgür Gündem.
two daily publications were aiming at informing the public opinion about the
violations of Human Rights in Kurdistan and in Turkey, in a general way,
about the military actions of the turkish state in Kurdistan, as the social,
political and economical situation in Turkey and in Kurdistan.
fought to create a democratic climax in Turkey, to make the turkish and
kurdish peoples live together in equality and to make the democratical,
political and social rights of the kurdish people recognized and admitted.
Both defended the freedom of press expression, the democracy and the
universal principles of Human Rights. That's why in Turkey and in Kurdistan,
they became symbols of these principles.
they had to pay hard their attachment to such principles. Nine reporters of
Ozgür Gündem and Ozgür Ülke were killed by contre-guerilla forces. Three
persons were kidnapped , one was injured, five distributors and nine
salesmen were killed. There were (as it still exists) police-operations in
the offices of the newspaper and the personal were arrested, tortured. This
newspaper , the favourite of Kurds, and whose printing number is normally
over one hundred thousend(100000), can't arrive till the farthest cities of
Kurdistan and the salesmen in metropoles who have it, are regularly followed
by police forces. Those, who buy it despite all these difficulties are
classified in files.
despite all the pressions and impediments , the state couldn't impress
silence to the reporters of Ôzgür Ülke. In front of their resistance and
determination , the turkish state is choosing other methods, more radical
and at the same time more cowardly. On December 3rd, the offices of the
daily newspaper in Istanbul, in Ankara and in Adana, were the targets of a
serial of devastating deadly bomb attacks.
the occasion of the murderer attacks on December 1994, one could learn that
157 daily publications among the 164 published since April 26th 1994, had
been grasped by turkish justice. On August lst 1995, two reporters of Ôzgür
Nazim BABAOGLU are still reported missing.
Pressions of the State against the Defense Organisations for Human Rights.
Human Rights Organisations are the targets of the turkish attacks too. They
inform the public about their rights and are caring for both the situation
of prisoners their families and victims of torture. IHD (Association for
Human Rihts) publishes a magazine
every month about the violation of Human Rights and keeps contacts
with international institutions. The turkish police patrols carry out
regularly military operations in IHD's offices. The police forces submit
such organisations to a constant observation , threaten them permanently and
arrest or kidnap the militants or members. Some have been killed. On
February 1993, the corpses of the President of the IHD, Metin CAN (lawyer)
and Hasan KAYA (doctor), members of IHD, were found under a bridge in
Dersim. That was the same case concerning the corpse of
Yusuf TALAN , disappeared during November
1997 of the same year in Dersim. Yet are the activities of Defense
associations for Human Rights in Turkey really impossible. The Turkish
Republic wants, with such proceedings, to hide the massacres and killings
from the international public opinion.
Imprisonment for offence of thought.
the last years, the writers and the intellectuals had their part among the
measures taken by turkish authorities againt the kurdish people. The Law
Court for State's Security judged and sentenced them to imprisonment and
imancial penalties. Some of them are still judged with death penalty. With
that behaviour, the turkish government puts in jail the expression of the
thoughts from past and future concerning the Kurds. They accuse the writers
with "terrorïsm" and "separatism" , with
"betrayal" and judge them according to the clause n°3713 of the
Anti-terrorist Law. Every assertion for democratic and legitimate rights are
regarded as crimes by these Court Laws for State's Security. So it is
important to know if somewhere around the world, there exist writers who
can't write. These courts have been judging for a longtime writers
researchers and scientists as Dr. Ismail Besikçi,
Dr. Haluk Gerger, Dr. Fikret Baskaya and Ibrahim Guçlu
a great number of reporters have been sentenced to imprisonment or financial
penalties. The estimated number of Kurds in prison nowadays is over 10000.
This number is fourth time more important as the number of Kurds arrested
the military regime on September 12th 1980 The Kurds in prison are
from all the social classes (students, intellectuals, peasants, members of
Parliament,politicians). Apart from inhuman actions against the prisoners in
jail , they are judged according the clause n° 125 of the turkish penal
code (Anti-terror Law) by the Law Court for State's Security, founded by
special laws in order to protect entirely the regime. For more than one
year, the Kurds have been contesting the sentences delivered by these
Courts, since they are not able to study legally a proceeding. Their
functionment is wholy against the international laws. One of the practices
of the turkish government in prisons is the attacks conducted by military
forces against the prisoners in Diyarbakir during the last days. On October
4th 1994, two prisoners were killed and 71 were severly wounded during that
military operation. A great number of prisoners were sent to prisons of
Turkey, far from those of Kurdistan.

SOCIAL AND ECONOMICAL CONSEQUENCES OF ELEVEN YEARS OF WAR.
consequences of eleven years of war in social and political spheres are
catastrophical. In fact, being a model for the Developing Countries till
recent years, Turkey is today in a very difficult economical crisis because
of the high costs of the war investments in Kurdistan. It is both an
economical, social and political crisis. During the economical forum in
Davos, Switzerland , the specialists in economy didn't fail to draw the
attention of the President Demirel on this point.
external credits and the budget shorting are going up . The inflation
increases dramatically, it has now reached its peak about 200°Io.
to the International Institute of Peace, whose principal office is in
Stockholm, the turkish military expenses are about 7 billion dollars per
year, that's to say half of the national budget. Turkey is now in such a
position that it can't even repay the interests of the credits. On this
purpose, Miss Ciller, the Prime Minister, announced on November llth 1994,
in a public meeting, that :"The interests of the borrowings have
increased from 24 trillions TL `turkish lira' to 222 trillions TL, (or
Sbillion dollars). We are now unable to refund . We borrow in order to pay
the interests..." Turkey is in a fragile position during the meetings
with the international financial organisations. The International Monetary
Fund insists on the increase of prices. The government makes the people pay
a hard bill of war. In that way,the price increases were decided in January
1994. In 1993, the devaluation of turkish money overcame the devaluation of
Latin America's money. The report Of Swiss Bank Union labels Turkey among
the unreliable states .Turkish economy is suffocated by the cost of eleven
years of war. All the investments are fast "dead". A great number
of economists and specialists , among them the turkish bosses, the TUSIAD,
claim that turkish ecenomy can't have an improvment unless the kurdish
question is solved.
THE APPROACH OF THE CONFLICT BY THE TURKISH STATE:
all the fundamental rights of kurdish people, the turkish totalitarian
regime has a policy of total destruction in North-West Kurdistan. That's the
reason for which there have ever been killings and they are a part of
everyday life in Kurdistan.
should be known that since the foundation of Turkish Republic in 1923
North-West Kurdistan has been governed by the turkish occupying power with
Special Laws. Kurdish people never know or had the peace.
April 1990, in order to prevent the Fight for National Liberation in
Kurdistan frspreading to other areas, Ankara announced -besides the
emergency state measures- several special decrees.These decrees enforce trhe
power of the "super- governor" (a system dating back to 1987) of
kurdish provinces under emergency state measures. Moreover these decrees
legitimated the massive deportations and summary practices.
purpose of the turkish government is to create buffer areas by deporting
villages which resist against the opression on the one hand and those who
have relationships with Resistance forces on the other hand.
army , to achieve its purpose, loots, sets fire to villages and mines roads
after the deportation of the local population.The army kills the livestock ,
sets fields and forests into fire in order to create a " no-man's land
". By doing this it balances off the ecosystem in that area.
The inhabitants of the villages are systematically brutalized,
tortured and even killed if they refuse to live their villages. Until today,
more than 2.3 million people have been deported under miserable conditions.
They are deprived of everything as the army destroyed all their properties.
At first , the regions near to turkish-iranian border line and those near to
Syria have been concerned by massive deportations. Then as far as the Fight
for National Liberation of Kurdistan spread to other areas, the policy of
devastation expanded to the 21 kurdish provinces. So some of the villages in
Dersim and other frontier areas were submitted to the policy of
dishumanisation or deportation. Such military operations could achieve their
goals with no great difficulty for Turkey announced on August 1990 to
European Council the adjournment of the European Convention of Human Rights
in 13 kurdish provinces under the emergency state measures.The consequences
of massive deportations included in turkish state's policy are really
worrying. The number of destroyed villages in Turkey is much more important
then those bombed by Saddam Hussein's army during the operation called
"Anfall". In fact an estimated number of 3.5 million kurdish
peasants have been deported from their villages to the cities where any
measure was taken to shelter them. After the deportation operations the
peasants are in complete misery since the government doesn't pay any
indemnity to compensate the damages. Some of them urged to join the turkish
metropoles like Istanbul, Izmir, Mersin hoping to find there rapidly a job
while the others remain in slashytowns near kurdish cities like Hakkari,
Van, Mus, Diyarbakir, Mardin. Their living conditions are under the level of
extreme poverty. Everything is a lack: Water, lodginig, medical and
schooling aid . These kurdish families have lost everything they had because
of the damages made by turkish army. Some live in tents, some have no
shelter and have to face bad weather and climatic changes.Winter is really
har there, the temperatures reach their peak araund -35°C. During winter
and springs of the year 1995 only 20% of the emergency necessities could be
provided to the deported familles thanks to defense organisations for Human
Rights in Kurdistan.Ostentatiously reformations of form or the
"reformette" of Miss Ciller... Because of the criticisms and the
pression of international organisations such as the European Council and the
UEO's Assembly, Turkey tries , by the projects of constitutional changes
during the last months, to fight against potential penalties. The projects
of reformations announced by the turkish parliamentary delegation during the
springs meeting of the European Council and the summit of UEO's Assembly on
June don't even mention radical changes. The turkish political class can't
apparently forget the 1982's militarist constitution written by the generals
, the military regime of September 12st 1980. These projects bring only
ostentatious changes only in the form or appearence and it is clear that any
basical change. Yet a "reformette" can't bring democracy in
Turkey. Turkey doesn't need a "reformette" but an important
constitutional change, that's to say a constitution prepared by the
constituent power . Besides the Minister for Culture
, aware of this fact, tendered
his resignation to the government of Miss Ciller on June 24th 1995. the
Minister for Culture announced
that there was no hope for democracy with this government , because it
allways suspend the discussions concerning the constitution revision. Unable
to work under such conditions of constitution discussions' adjournment he
thought that his resignation would be a better solution.Consequently
it is out of question to
ban the offence of thought or solve the kurdish question -important
for the democaratisation proceedings in Turkey- only
by increasing the number of the parliamentaries from 450 to 600 or
set the coming of age in 18 instead of 21.
KURDISH POINT OF VIEW CONCERNING THE CONFLICT:
the fact that kurdish people has its own language, a common culture a
history and a teritorial unity which are the bases of the concept of nation
, The Movement for National Liberationrises up with all its forces regarding
these realities in order to obtain the rights for the kurdish peopleadmitted
for all the nations in the Chart of the United Nations." The front for
National Liberation in Kurdistan is now developing the legitimate fight of
the People which is now being known in the international sphere.
the destiny of 30 million of souls on a territory about 520000 km2, in a
such a fragile area - considering the international extent of the events in
Kurdistan on the one hand, the silent genocide on the other hand - would
interfere with the credibility of these institutions. Differing for a
longtime in discussions and in studies on this subject would mean failing to
the duties defined in the chart.
it would be discerning to enforce the rights and the principles deimed by
international community and in particular in the Chart of United Nations
which is as follows:"(chapter 1 ): One of the aims of the United
Nations is the development- between Nations- of friendly relationships based
on the respect of the equality principles concerning the rights of peoples
and their right to self-determination." In the chapter of
"international social and ecenomical cooperation" (chapter IX ,
clause n°55), we remark that the last part of this clause announces
the"right for self-determination for the nations, the universal respect
of Human Rights and Fundamental Liberties for everyone, without any
distinction of race, of sexe, of language or religion." This has been
enforced by the United Nations" in order to create the conditions of
stability and welfare which are needed to develop pacific and friendly
relationships based on the respect of the equality principle concerning the
rights of peoples and their right to self-determination. " The war is
against the interests of both turkish people and the kurdish people.
kurdish people has been settling in Kurdistan for three thousend years. But
it is deprived of its rights , even its existence is refused and denied by
the ocupation powers. The foundation of Turkish Republic in 1923 changed
nothing, on the contrary, the new turkish totalitarian constitution has
worsened the status of the kurdish people.
NAT04S pillar in the Middle-East due to its strategic situation , Turkey
could violate the Human Rights and frighten the civilians. The destruction
of 4000 villages, the deportation of a whole nation, the 20000 prisoners of
thought tortured systematically eve'ryday, the arrestment of kurdish and
turkish intellectuals , the summary killings by the attacks of the Death
Squadrons are the concrete evidences showing the situation.
ratifying the international conventions , the governments commit themselves
to respect the conventions. Turkey has signed a great number of
international conventions among which the United Nations' Chart, The Chart
of Paris, and the European Convention for Safeguard of Human Rights and
Fundamental Liberties. But the United Nations General Assembly passed a bill
in 1960 concerning the decolonisation proceeding of peoples. Despite this ,
Turkey is breaking these conventions and laughs at the international
institutions , injuring the reputation and the credibility of these
kurdish people suggested many times the dialogue and the peace to Ankara's
authorities. In that way, the PKK acted first by announcing an unilateral
ceasefire which lasted 83 days. But Ankara accuses The Movement for National
with separatism and considers it as the enemy of the territorial
unity. As for the states preaching a political solution to the Kurdish
question , they are examined critically and their way of acting is regarded
as an interference
with turkish internal affairs.
war is against the interests of both the Kurds and the Turks. Aware of this
reality, the civilian society blamed and exposed the war and its
is a mosaic of cultures and peoples suych as the Turks, Kurds, Arabics,
Greeks, Armenians, Assyrians, and the others? These nations have lived
together for centuries on the same country. They can't go on living together
without the respect and the admission of their neighbours.
considers itself as a democratic , laic state, which enforces no particular
etnical or religious group. Yet the persons who are not from turkish
extraction have no other right as remaining silent. Yesterday, the West was
silent on the violations of Human Rights because of the fear for communism,
today the islamic fundamentalism frightens and some have the same behaviour.
The agreement to see an antidemocratic Turkey as a member of International
Organisations brings to debate the question of the attachment of these
states to basic principles of democracy. That's why if the international
institutions wish to keep their credibility alive , they should look over
the respect or not of the minimal democratic standards by their members .
penalties and acts are needed. That's only under such conditions that the
turkish state will be obliged to take the way of the democracy.
that the democracy in Turkey needs a pacific and political solution of the
kurdish problem, the international institutions should judiciously take into
consideration The Movement for National Liberation suggestions for peace.

security in the world, shall take every useful and necessary measures in

In the international sphere, every measure should be taken to bring the
refugees back to their home with all the security guarantees.
We inform the defense organisations for Human Rights in order to provide
necessary aid to the civilianbs and to find a sane solution to the problem.
International comunity must react against the measures opposed to the clause
n'13 of the International Chart for Human Rights aiming at separating the
Kurds from their national area, depriving the local rural kurdish
populations from their incomes and creating a social class made of refugees,
exiled persons living under the level of poverty , this in a periode of time
where the economical development and stopping the rural exodus are regarded
as the international priorities.
international community must accept some resolutions and take the necessary
measures in order to stop the collective repression of the kurdish civilians
, this repression which is becoming more and more important in the context
of war `de facto' in Kurdistan.
International Comunity blames the genocide onkurdish people . The turkish

democratic states used their power in the United Nations to change the regle

Security Council of the United Nations , according to the Chart, studies the
kurdish question and takes into consideration the suggestion of The Movement
for National Liberation on the one hand, and the threat against the peace
(the turkish attacks and the quarrelsome will of the turkish state) in order
to organize an international conference on Kurdistan.
President G W Bush
the Foreign Policy Program has four main project fields. In order to
facilitate full accession to the European Union, the Foreign Policy Program
are analysing several aspects of Turkey's accession process and the
questions that have and will arise through this. Such topics include
Turkey's affect on and harmonization with European Security and Defence
Policy and the economic impact of Turkish accession. TESEV's Foreign Policy
Program has sought to bring a solution to the Cyprus problem not only to
smooth the progress of European accession but also to seek a peaceful
solution for the Cypriots themselves. Thirdly, TESEV believe that the
process of Middle Eastern democratization is of paramount importance for
Turkey and the people of the region. The Foreign Policy Program is working
with a number of partners to develop solutions to the regions problems and
support internal democratisation efforts.Finally, the Foreign Policy Program
has organised ad hoc projects on aspects of Turkish Foreign Policy, which
warrant further study. “

President G W Bush
has organized an international conference with IFRI (Institut
français des relations internationales), one of the leading think-tanks in
France about the relations between Turkey, EU and France. In her keynote
speech, Elisabeth Guigou, the Former Minister of Justice in France,
currently the Vice President of Foreign Affairs Commission and Deputy of
Seine-Saint-Denis clearly expressed her opposition to the idea of privileged
partnership status. Guigou stated that there is a priviliged partnership
between Turkey and the EU for 40 years now and it would be meaningless to
propose this idea as it is a new proposal.
Guigou continued her speech stressing one of the common talking points for
all the speakers, the communication problem. It was further expressed by the
French speakers who attended the conference that the French public opinion
about Turkey can be described as misled and prejudiced considering the low
level of information they have regarding Turkey's membership to the EU.
Elisabeth Guigou further stated that the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership
which would be an efficient mechanism when evaluated as a separate
initiative was wrongly opposed after it was presented as an alternative to
Turkey's membership. »
