Kurdish Centre stairwell and doorway

Photograph of the stairwell at the Kurdish Centre looking down onto a shattered door at the entrance. 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.

Escaleras del Centro Kurdo

Fotografía de unas escaleras en el Centro Kurdo en la que al final de ellas se puede ver una puerta prácticamente destruida. 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. Esta fotografía fue tomada probablemente por un miembro del Centro Kurdo durante ese tiempo.
