Democratic Road Closed for Kurds in Turkey with yet more repression.

The BBC reports that the supreme court in Turkey are making moves to close down the only legal Kurdish Party in Turkey, the DTP. Elected to parliament in the Turkish elections in the Spring, the Kurdish deputies have faced a barrage of legal and media attacks culminating in this closure. DTP supporters attacked by police as democratic rally in Van is broken up.
And some people wonder why the Kurds support the armed struggle?
