Your so right Annemaria, haringay is a mini turkey, so why I love it here
The marches have been going on for the last 20y I have been living here, and probably many years before- long may they feel able to do so in our streets so long as peaceful
So much better than the big gang fights on green lanes and across into the garden roads that used to go on between the gangs, mostly amongst younger kurds and turks. That was until someone got killed during one, around top of mattison road( cant remember exactly) around 15years ago-Then a police mobile van moved into green lanes with police 24/7 for few months, until they had "dealt with the situation", made arrests. And so far, all quiet on that front since
Good job done
Hear hear Pavlos. The Kurds are one of the most oppressed groups in the Near East and so many live here - I totally support their right to demonstrate peacefully.
So Suruc has finally pushed Erdogan to get over his more parochial concerns and recognise his regional/world obligations.
Erdogan also decided to start bombing the Kurds again, breaking a cease fire:
A few years ago there was a fascinating documentary on how the RAF spent some of the period between WW1 & WW2 bombing rebellious Kurds who were unhappy at not getting a nation, including interviews with some of the pilots. Haven't got a link for the documentary, but there is some discussion here.
