The Kurdish city of Diyarbakir is Under Siege by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who continues a months-long assault on Kurdish politicians, news media, and intellectuals.

Internet access in Diyarbakir has been shut down, Kurdish leaders arrested or jailed, and Kurdish TV is shut down, even the children’s Tom and Jerry cartoon series is too much for Erdogan.

The Turkish Lira is in a freefall and Erdogan warns people about hoarding money.

Please consider Kurdish City Under Siege as Turkey Intensifies Crackdown.

For the past two weeks Diyarbakir, the unofficial capital of Turkey’s 15m Kurdish citizens, has been a city under siege.

Its mayor, Gultan Kisanak, one of the country’s best-known Kurdish politicians, was jailed. City Hall was cordoned off. Armed riot police roamed the streets under the shadow of hulking water cannons, the whiff of pepper spray in the air.
