a nation is composed of people of like genes. a country is an area that was claimed through treachory (war/killing). under the UN (united nations) a nation has the right to preserve itself. it is called soverenty. the kurds if they are in their home teritory and in a majority have the right as a nation to govern themselves and not submit to foreign rule. the turks are clearly not allowed under human rights acts in the UN to control the mountains occupied by the nation that has been there before them. one thing we all must acknowlege is that all kingdoms (domain) were achieved through killing and unethical conquest. even the queen of england has no land which was not gotten but by killing. she by no means represents the good people of her domain. all people must realize this before we can become true humans and rightfully separate ourselves from the brute beasts.

This photograph displays the cruelty racism and greed makes a savage man do. It is an image taken in the 1980s but seen everyday, even today in Turkey where racist savages call themselves a "democratic government". The leaders of Turkey and Turks as a culture with the exception of few, are so far behind in the art of society that they have yet to grasp the concept of democracy. To them the savage Ata-Turk is the mother of democracy, as they take pride in his savagry and hang his wolf face figure at all democratic government offices, and public places. With this thinking even the most optomistic of social scientists know that the turkish society is millions of years behind in the science of society and it will be thousands of years if ever, before they move away from thier racist ideologies and start to grasp the concept of democracy

This picture is more likely taken when Turkish troopers were looking for kurdish fighters (PKK) in Kurdistan region who tried to distribute the fear image among kurdish people in order to stop them from rising for their rights against the cruel and racist government.
Who took the photo: Unknown
Such armoured vehicles were widely used by the turkish police in the 80's. And the picture was probably taken by a danish photographer. Scandinavian journalist travelled a lot to Kurdistan after the military coup.

Isn't it funny that we always have Greeks & Armenians who are experts on anything anti-Turkish? Where were these same so called "human rights activist" when hundreds of thousands of Bosnians were killed right next to the so-called "center of democracy" Greece? Or how about the millions of others killed in atrocities in the last decade around the globe? Of course since it had nothing to do with Turkey, it didn't concern them. They are ready to attack Turkey whenever they get the chance, even by falsifying documents & twisting the truth. Remember that the so-called "freedom fighters" cost the lives of over 37,000 people in Turkey, most of whom were Kurds. They viciously killed women, children, the elderly as well as teachers, officials and policemen/soldiers. Kurds are free in Turkey, like any other citizen; as long as they do not rise against the state and fight for "dividing" the state. This is the natural right of any country, and there is no country in the world that will stand-still while it is being torn-apart by inside & outside forces keen on dividing up Turkey. Greece doesn't even allow the Turkish minority to elect its own religious cleric, arresting him numerous times. Armenia is the true terrorist state, as was evident with the assassination of its Prime Minister & several members of the Parliament a few years ago in Yerevan, Armenia. The Armenians have developed violence and terrorism into an art form, and adopted it as their own mean of "official policy". Both countries still have the nerve to criticize Turkey. Look at yourselves in the mirror before offering advice!

1985 is not history, 500 years is history.Who is to say who these people are and what they do?.Over 4000 known conflict today in the world, this picture was taken in only one of them, I do not see the relation to Kurds.

I dont understand you people. This is the way we were upressed. And instead of coming up and fighting for the honour of this people, we are asking ourselves what is the origin of this foto. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO FIGHT ANYONE BECAUSE WE HAVET HAD THE RIGHT TO HAVE OUR LAND.

Clearly the photograph depicts Kurdish civilians being rounded up and intimidated by Turkish soldiers who can be seen standing to the sides of the photograph with an armoured troop carrier to the back.

Clearly Kurdish civilians are being forced to lie down with their hands at their heads, intimidated by Turkish troops who can be seen in the outer reaches of the photograph with an armoured troop carrier centre back!

Who is in the photo: innocent towners
this is very similar to the the gathering of local kurds in the military rule during early 80s in n.kurdistan. it has a high probability of being in diyarbakir where people faced rough times.
Who took the photo: arm men in an army base
i think that it's showing how kurdish should fear other people and try not to become anything
Who is in the photo: kurds being oppressed
Who took the photo: i dont know
may be they wanted to fight for their country but got court by the turks and got arrested

Who took the photo: ?
I remember my grandfather telling me a story about how him and his villagers where trying to get somewhere i cant rememeber where or why becouse this story was told me a long time ago. He told me that as they were on there way to wherever they were going they were stopped by the turkish police or government. He said they asked them some question and when they found out that none of them could speak turkish they made them all lay on they ground while they searched them a few were against them doing this so they were pulled to one side and the others were let free to where they pleased without sayingor doing anything the rest of them went on there way. The people were pulled to one side were never seen again. I am not saying this is the answer of the picture but something like this was told to me when i was young by my grand father so im saying this could have been the picture of this event or maybe not hope this has helped.

Who took the photo: Danish photographer apparently
All the text is in Danish, and here is a translation: "2 May archive and photo" followed by the address in Copenhagen, followed by the phone number. To the right it says: "Date:" (no entry), "Subject: Turkey, MUST be returned", "In case of publication the following MUST be mentioned:" and what appears to be the photographer's name. If you want to know more, ask a Danish colleague to investigate that address in contral Copenhagen (the phone numbers have changed since then).
