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.

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’.

Sara Kaya was detained by police of Erdogan last January. The democratic mayoress of the devastated border town is accused of “wanting to break the unity and integrity of the Turkish state.”
She was decreed jail without bail on 27 January. She was detained in prison of Mardin E-type but now has been transferred to solitary confinement in a high security prison of the type E, Wan.Children shelter from the indiscriminate police and army attacks on Nusaybin
No one knows why. E-type prisons are a high security level but below the dreaded F-type prisons where torture is practiced regularly.
Sara Kaya is one of dozens of Turkish mayors and Deputies arbitrarily imprisoned without trial in Turkey

..’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.
