The mass repression against the Kurdish people and labor continues. Kurdish teachers organized under the teachers Union Egitim-Sen decided to resist the move to abandon their students in the Kurdish city of Diyarbakır. The government demanded the evacuation of all government employees to launch a war against the people in these towns and communities. The president Erdogan has unleashed a murderous attack on not only the schools, students and teachers but the entire population in a pogrom. This mass repression and terror is also being unleashed against journalists and workers throughout the country.
This forum will provide an update on developments and how trade unionists and people in the US can build direct solidarity action for the Kurdish people and workers in Turkey.
