Kürkçü: Sur residents have all

“Evacuating Kurdistan’s maybe the oldest district, Sur, without having the consent of the residents can only be seen in the practice of imperialist states. Kurdish people have all kinds of rights including rebellion, the basic citizenship right. Sur residents have all," said he.

'Real problem is whether Kurds will have equal rights on state level'

Kürkçü drew attention on the peace process and noted, "The solution process must resume. There is no need for a dialogue any more if a true negotiation process based on 10 principles drawn by Öcalan won’t be carried out. The real problem is whether Kurds will have equal rights on state level. Kurds are ready but the state is not for it. That is the source of all this chaos."

When is fraternity if not now?

“İzmir Metropolitan Municipality had declared Diyarbakır Metropolitan Municipality as sister city. When is fraternity if not now? If peoples of Turkey won’t respond to this question, then we might enter a worrisome process. NGOs and intellectuals now have to wake up to themselves. It might be too late after two weeks," asked he.
