Kurds disillusioned after party ban

Diyarbakir residents say Turkish government is trying to silence Kurdish voices.

The Kurdish Democratic Society Party (DTP) has been shut down by Turkey’s constitutional court follwing claims that the party had ties to the armed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

The court ruling has sparked anger among the country’s minority Kurds, and provoked violent protests.

Kurds say that the government’s move to outlaw both the PKK and the DTP is proof that they are being marginalised.
