THE INFINITE DRAMA OF THE CURDI AND THE TURKISH

Today an intense day of debate ends at the Fondazione Mediterraneo to take stock of what is happening in Turkey and, especially, to the Kurds.
We listened to many members of the International Committee and connected with Turkish and Kurdish intellectuals to learn about their thinking.
The result is discouraging: the main defendant at the global level is a political and government class unprepared, slovenly, devoted to miserable special interests and unaware of the Common Good and the Value of Life and Human Dignity.
"As women we are determined to fight until we achieve the victory of peace, freedom and justice": this is how Kurdish women in a book turn to the world, as they assist the advance of Turkish troops in their territory and try to stop them. They demand that the international community act to put an end to the "invasion and occupation of Turkey in northern Syria". They do this with a letter entitled "To all the women and peoples of the world who love freedom".
It is the testimony of the situation that is faced today by the Kurds who live in northern Syria, since the territory where they live is hostage to the offensive of Turkey.
The text reads:
"We are writing to you in the midst of the war in Northeast Syria, forced by the Turkish state into our native land. We have been resisting for three days under the bombing of fighter planes and Turkish tanks. We have witnessed how mothers in their neighborhoods are targeted by bombing when they leave home to get bread for their families. We saw how the explosion of a NATO grenade tore Sara's seven-year-old leg to shreds, and killed her brother Mohammed by twelve."
