Scattered files and overturned desks

Photograph of scattered files and overturned furniture on the floor of the Kurdish Centre’s offices. 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.

Papeles por el suelo y muebles tirados

Fotografía de documentos, papeles y fotos esparcidos por el suelo al lado de un escritorio y un armario tirado al suelo en el Centro Kurdo. 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.
