Fire damage at Kurdish Centre

Photograph of the raided and damaged interior room of the Kurdish Centre, showing fire damage to its benches. On 2 February 2016, the offices of the Kurdish Centre in Sur Amed-Diyarbakir were attacked and raided. This took place during a time of national emergency in Turkey, when freedom of expression was critically compromised as Kurdish literary institutions and writers became targets of attack. This photograph was most likely taken by a member of the Kurdish Centre around that time.

Bancos quemados

Fotografía de una habitación del Centro Kurdo completamente dañada y saqueada, y unos bancos que parecen haber sido quemados . El 2 de Febrero de 2016 las oficinas del Centro Kurdo situadas en Sur Amed, Diyarbakir, fueron atacadas y saqueadas. Esto tuvo lugar durante la época en la que hubo emergencia nacional en Turquía, cuando muchas instituciones literarias fueron cerradas, escritores fueron perseguidos, y la libertad de expresión fue críticamente comprometida.
