The Turkish Erdogan government and it’s police and military have launched attacks on the Kurdish people and other minorities throughout the country.
At the same time the Erdogan government continues privatization and attacks on working people and the unions in Turkey from airline workers to Artigas workers, Metal Workers and Istanbul Hyatt and Dora Workers.

The struggle against the growing repression and assassinations of people throughout the country is moving the country toward civil war.

This forum will have speakers from the Turkish community, Kurdish community, Armenian community and reports on the growing repression of labor and journalists who are being kidnapped and terrorized.

The forum will also look at the United States role in breaking up Iraq, Libya and Syria which has created massive flows of refugees and growing threats to the lives of millions.

Turkey is again being forced into a civil war. Non-Turkish citizens are once again being massacred by the Turkish police, army, special forces and the jihadist gangs of ISIL. Progressive Turks are also getting their share of the oppression.

The only way to stop the the massive state repression is by having all peoples of Anatolia and the Middle East to join forces against the Turkish State's traditional oppression of anything that it sees as a challenge to its ideology of one state, one nation, one language, one religion, one race.
