kchikurdi:

turkey shut down and attacked the attendees of 3 kurdish schools (in cizre, gever, and amed) that taught on in kurdish. the riot police came and severely injured the mothers and fathers who were trying to protect their children’s right to learn their own mother tongue. the government has now made it illegal in those regions to teach in kurdish even though a month or two ago the PM made it completely legal.

the entrance to the school in amed was barricaded by hoards of police and tape. yesterday the tape was taken down; today it is back up again.

the police severely injured dozens of kurds with batons and tear gas.

this is ferguson-esque situation has been happening to the kurds for over a century but will anyone bat an eye?
