..’Erdogan is by now clearly mentally unfit to hold office. His worsening paranoid schizophrenic symptoms, linked to his extreme megalomania has led him to force a civil war with the 18 million Kurdish minority, who were well embarked on a process of peaceful integration. Gaining popularity and power in a controlled press by his xenophobic excesses his paranoid obsession with possible enemies has nevertheless let loose massive purges, torture, blackmail and invasions in Syria and Iraq that would make dictators like Pol Pot or Josef Stalin blush’.

Erdogan ya ha detenido 195.000 personas desde el supuesto golpe
Las pocas horas que duró la asonada les están sirviendo de mucho al presidente turco. Sin ningún juicio, sin pruebas, sin elementos de juicio, sin observadores internacionales Erdogan sigue con su purga… sin límite.
El OHAL, decreto de Estado de Urgencia, ha servido, para detener a 195.000 opositores, disidentes o, simplemente, no afectos. Las cifras las ha recopilado la Asociación de Derechos Humanos ( İHD) de Estambul que las ha presentado frente a la prisión de mujeres de Bakırköy.
En la misma denunció que “el aislamiento de las presas las mata”, solicitó la libertad de las presas enfermas y denunció la situación de indefensión de los niños que están encarcelados con sus madres.
En total se trata de 510 menores de 6 años.
La asociación ha cifrado en 5.971 las personas menores de edad que están en cárceles de Erdogan y 79 más por ser LGTB.
Los principales problemas que sufren los presos de Erdogan son una nutrición muy deficiente y con alimentos poco saludables que originan en el malestar estomacal o falta de higiene en celdas de 6-7 personas.
Sin embargo la situación peor es para los/las presos/as políticos/as: son sometidos/as a torturas en la cárcel y a desnudos forzados.
This is the award winning ‘DeadCity’ (Ciutat Morta) with English subtitles, finally seen on TV in Catalonia by over half a million this week (with 5 minutes censored).
Ciutat Morta (Dead City)
It tells the story of a police vendetta, torture, and frame-up of 5 obviously and totally innocent people in vengeance for an ‘accident’ when a plant pot fell or was thrown on a policeman’s head, leaving him paraplegic, during a mass raid on a squatters party in Barcelona. How police, politicians, press and Courts at every level combined to blame bystanders who looked like anarcho punks and hound to her death a lesbian poet who wasn’t even there.
Patricia Heras poeta
The documentary is an eye-opener on how rampant fascism, racism and sexism still rule in never reformed police and judicial systems, but more than that it’s a moving immersion into suffering and struggle, using the poems of Patricia Heras, written before she was finally driven to suicide.
After the docu was shown to a record audience on the 2nd channel people spontaneously took to the streets for a 1.00am demo through the city. Continue reading Ciutat Morta- Dead City- watch here + Review (English subs)
