Germans Protest Upcoming Visit of Turkish Premier over His Government's Human Rights Violation

Oct 31, 2012

BERLIN/ANKARA, (SANA) – Huge crowds gathered in front of Brandenburg Gate in the German Capital of Berlin to protest against the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit to Germany.

The protesters raised banners that criticize Erdogan's policies which violate human rights.

Earlier in the week, the Turkish security forces suppressed tens of thousands of Turks who joined massive popular protests against the attempts of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government to ban the celebration of the 89th anniversary of the foundation of the Turkish Republic. 

The Turkish police clashed with Kurdish protesters on Tuesday near a prison in the city of Diyarbakir in southeastern Turkey, where inmates are continuing their hunger strike for the 48th day in a row.

The Turkish Anadolu news agency said several thousand people joined the protest marching towards the prison and the police used tear gas and water cannon to disperse the protesters who reacted by throwing stones at the police personnel.

Shops were closed and the locals did not send their children to school in line with calls for a boycott.

The Anadolu agency also reported clashes in the city of Istanbul without reports on casualties. A protest also took place in Adana and most of shops closed in Van region.

Hundreds of Kurdish prisoners in dozens of Turkish jails have been on a hunger strike since September demanding increased rights for Kurds and improved conditions for the Kurdish detainees.

Council of the Turkish Peace and Democracy Party discussed the hunger strike issue and decided on many steps and activities in this regard, including declaring October 30 as a 'Resistance Day'.

The Council also decided sending messages to the Kurdish parties and human rights organizations in Europe and the UN and its bodies as well as heads of the European countries, the Turkish embassies, the U.S. Congress members and media channels to urge them to assume responsibility towards the prisoners who are on a hunger strike.

The Council said all organizations of the Peace and Democracy Party in all areas will lay black wreathes in front of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) centers in Turkey and will set up tents and organize oratorical events in solidarity with the hunger strikers.

For its part, the opposition Republican People's Party called on the Turkish public to be on the lookout towards the policy of the ruling AKP party which is trying to hold sway over the judiciary and the higher courts in the country.

From history: Germany - Turkey

Turkey was favoured as a potential ally by Hitler because of its important strategic location on the boundaries of Europe, Asia, and Africa, as well as its extensive history as a state hostile against the Russian Empire as well as the later Soviet Union.
To assure that Germany wanted to work with them on a long-range basis, the Turks were guaranteed an equal status in the German-dominated order, and were promised a number of territories which they might desire for reasons of security. These encompassed Edirne (Adrianople) and a rectification of Turkish frontiers at the expense of Greece, the creation of buffer states in the Caucasus under Turkish influence, a rectification of the Turkish-Syrian frontier (the Baghdad Railway and the State of Aleppo) and the Turkish-Iraq frontier (the Mosul region), as well as a settlement of "the Aegean question" to provide Turkey with suitable protection against encroachments from Italy. The Black Sea (which Hitler derided as "a mere frog-pond")was also to be conceded to Turkey as part of its sphere of influence, for this would ne:gate the need of stationing a German navy in the region to replace the Soviet Black Sea Fleet.

In November 2005, an agreement was signed for the sale of 298 German Army Leopard 2A4 tanks to Turkey. Turkey’s tank fleet is currently made up of American M-48s and M-60s, some of which have been modernized with Israeli cooperation into M-60 Sabra tanks, plus a large contingent of German Leopard 1s and Leopard 2s. That is hardy surprising. America and Germany are Turkey’s 2 most important geopolitical relationships, and this is reflected in Turkey’s choice of defense industry partners. The country’s industrial offset requirements ensure that these manufacturers have a long history of local partnerships to draw upon.

Note: The website of the Syrian Arab News Agency SANA is regularly blocked by Washington that doesn't stop its war propaganda and its financial and military aid to terrorist groups.
