Spanish State arrests Writer Akhanli on Request of Genocidal Erdogan

The German government has asked Spain not to extradite the Turkish-German writer Dogan Akhanli, who was arrested on Saturday in Grenada under a search and arrest warrant for his subsequent extradition by Interpol, at the request of Turkey, for “membership of an armed band and terrorist “.Image may contain: text

The Spanish police have yet to reveal any reason for the arrest.

A German citizen, Akhanli is committed to memorializing the genocides of the twentieth century, including the Armenian Genocide, and to promoting cross-cultural dialogue with a view to reconciliation.

Akhanli wrote two novels on the mass killings of Armenians in 1915, ‘The Judges of the last Judgment’ and ‘The Last Dream of the Madonna’.

After the 1980 coup d’etat, Akhanli went into hiding and was a political prisoner in a Turkish military jail between 1985 and 1987. He fled Turkey in 1991 and settled in Germany.Image result for Dogan Akhanli, arrested ERdogan dictator

In August 2010, he returned to Turkey to visit his dying father, but was arrested at the airport and thrown into prison for four months. Thanks to a campaign in his defense, organized by civil rights activists and Turkish and German intellectuals, he managed to leave Turkey and return to Germany  http://panarmenian.net/m/eng/news/245724

Turkish State also murders with Spanish made arms

 Turkish  army kills with ‘Made In Spain arms

Spanish companies like Indra, based in Barcelona, ​​obtain lucrative contracts for the export of military technology in Turkey, despite the human rights violations committed in that country
translated from research by GUILLE LARIOS at La Directa

It was in 2006 when the president of the Spanish government José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero and the then Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan co-sponsored an initiative of preventive diplomacy aimed at reducing tensions between the West and the Islamic world and fighting against international terrorism for others Roads that were not the military.

The Alliance of Civilizations was born with the support of the United Nations and the interest and approval of most (military) world powers.  Turkey became the third largest trading partner in Spain and the third largest importer of Spanish weapons, behind Thailand and the United States. Since the nineties, the Spanish State has supplied Turkey with military transport aircraft through the company Construcciones Aeronáuticas (CASA),  F-100 military frigates through Bazán (Navantia), artillery equipment from Santa Bárbara Systems and electronic war material of Indra.

by  mikail firtinaci         An anarchist comrade along with several others were arrested violently by the police during a solidarity demonstration with Nuriye Gulmen and Semih Ozakca*.

Yesterday an anarchist-comrade along with several others were arrested violently by the police during a solidarity demonstration with Nuriye Gulmen and Semih Ozakca*. Comrades in question are held arbitrarily by the police in custody and in protest of their treatment, yesterday they went on an indefinite hunger strike until they are released.

As the anniversary of the Gezi Revolt approaches (the end of May) fascist Erdogan government fears another revolt against its violent dictatorial regime. It is keeping every protester it can arrest as hostage. I will update this as more information arrives. As always, but as it becomes more and more clear everyday, our only weapon against the state and sectarian violence directed everywhere against the working class is international solidarity!

Can a Fascist Dictator be Elected? YES.. and Erdogan threatens Prison, Dismissal and Death to NO voters

The  referendum in Turkey is to give the president Erdogan nearly total dictatorial powers. But can a Fascist Dictator really  be Elected?

YES because in this case Erdogan has already seized dictatorial powers.. he’s supposed to be a generally symbolic president yet see below  the endless list of atrocities he has ordered.

But is he a fascist? Well, he is the absolute power in the populist far right AKP party which advocates extermination of 18 million kurds and the creation of an Ottoman Empire.

Though he screams and bullies abroad he is at home a master manipulator, head of a criminal family and business mafia, adept at abusing nationalist, sexist  and racial prejudices and feelings of resentment (even working class resentment against rich europeans) to whip up frenzied mob fervour and pursue witch-hunts against Kurds, leftists, feminists, Gulanists, minorities and anyone who dares to criticize him (or is a friend or family of any of the above).

Is this fascism.. in my definition YES. The referendum in this climate is a black joke, with every kind of pressure imaginable against No campaigners, with zero international observers coming, and with the most recent elections in Nov 2015 described as ‘stinking of mass fraud’. Continue reading Can a Fascist Dictator be Elected? YES.. and Erdogan threatens Prison, Dismissal and Death to NO voters
