>The PKK are the Kurdish People! The Kurdish People are the PKK!

A day that will go down in the history of the struggle of the Kurdish people for their freedom as epic. Which says a lot as the Kurdish Freedom Struggle is an epic struggle of biblical proportions in itself!

A day after the Palestinians had breached the untouchable borders of Israel, the Kurds threw off any semblance of fear and walked in their thousands for hours, over the border of N. Iraq and into a theatre of war, where the Turkish army were carrying out massive military operations against the Kurdish freedom fighters of the HPG, armed People’s Defense Forces.
All the information is still not clear as events are still continuing but Hevallo believes that hundreds of people had marched and arrived in the area where the Turkish army were continuing military operations with military helicopters buzzing around and scoured the conflict zone for the bodies of Kurdish guerilla fighters that had been left on the battle field.
At some time last night 3 of the fighters bodies were recovered and brought down the mountain on the shoulders of the people who went to get them. On their way back down the mountain they were attacked by Village Guards who rolled large bolders down the hill at them and soldiers who fired live ammunition over their heads and tear gas directly at them. They ignored all of this and instead, carried on with the bodies of the young Kurdish martyrs shouting, “Sehid Namerin!” (Long Live Our Martyrs) and carried to vehicles and brought down the mountains.

The Turkish army eventually stopped the cars and confiscated the bodies after more scuffles and more live shots fired.
I have seen video of a large group of civilians being surrounded by the fully armed soldiers in a threatening manner and the crowd fists in the air shouting, “Biji Serok Apo!” A breathtaking show of resistance and bravery. Many were detained and no doubt will suffer torture.
As this news was being digested around Kurdistan, hundreds of thousands of people came pouring onto the streets and in Istanbul a large crowd burst into Taksim Square to chants of “We are the PKK, the PKK are us!” A defiant slogan that exposes the relationship of the PKK with the Kurdish people.
In Mus, Nusaybin, Dogubazazit, Hakkari, Diyarbakir, Silopi, Silvan, Antep, Siirt, Viransehir, Suruc and including other places, in total, millions of people poured onto the streets in fury and rage against the killing of more young Kurdish men of the HPG. The inevitable battles took place and continue as more gas and water is sprayed on the Kurdish people. But pressure is building up to an intolerable level and Kurdistan is now a powderkeg and the Kurds are nearing the end of their tethers!
A frustration that is boiling over as the Kurds have faced the most brutal treatment at the hands of AKP police and the Turkish army as they, the Kurds, have tried to create the conditions for a peaceful settlement of the Kurdish Question by initiating a Civil Rights Campaign to stimulate and push the politicians to come to the negotiating table and solve, in a peaceful and negotiated way, the Kurdish Question in Turkey!
But the Turkish Army and AKP keep attacking the Kurds on every level.
I think everyone now understands that we are arriving at a crossroads, one signalling a long and protracted war that could polarise Kurds and Turks in Turkey and force people to take sides in a conflict that would destroy Turkey and cost the lives of perhaps hundreds of thousands more. Or the other road pointing to peace and a Turkey that could integrate the Kurds into some sort of federated or autonomous system and live in peace and prosper.
The funerals of these young men are still to take place. God willing, tomorrow!
As of moments ago, 5 corpes (the original number of 12 casualties was wrong) have been taken to Malatya hospital and the body of one of the martyrs was collected by 50,000 in Cizre.
One thing is clear to anyone who had thought the PKK were a small and insignificant group with no support and represented no threat to Turkey. They were wrong.

The PKK are the Freedom Fighters of the Kurdish People!

“The People are the PKK, The PKK are the People!

UPDATE:

Today, in Hakkari the Kurdish people buried one of those they brought down the mountain side on their shoulders!
