Turchia: fosse comuni nella regione kurda 0

 

 

Newala Kasaba, due parole che il popolo kurdo ha in testa come se fossero state scolpite nella loro mente. E in effetti è così. Newala Kasaba concentra in sé la maggior parte di ciò che è stata la guerra sporca contro il popolo kurdo. Newala Kasaba è un ampio campo collinare, alla periferia immediata di Siirt. Potrebbe essere una discarica. E infatti si possono trovare immondizie. Ma basta camminare a piedi per pochi metri per capire che questa terra nasconde qualcosa di più raccapricciante e orribile. Come sacchi della spazzatura, stanno venendo a galla, però non contengono spazzatura. Pezzi di vestiti rivelano ciò che è veramente nascosto sotto questi campi. La gente di Siirt conosce da molto tempo quale verità è stata sepolta qui per essere occultata ancora una volta, nelle intenzioni di coloro che commisero l’orrendo crimine di rapire gente, torturarla, ucciderla e infine scaricare e seppellire i loro corpi come fossero spazzatura. Newala Kasaba è un enorme cimitero, un cimitero dove sono stati sepolti gli orrori della guerra dello Stato turco contro i kurdi. Ma la verità non può essere sepolta per sempre. E infatti coloro che sono stati sepolti stanno lottando per uscire, per ricordare a tutti gli orribili, crudeli crimini commessi dallo stato turc
Si dice che più di 100 corpi sono sepolti a Newala Kasaba. Alcuni dicono che potrebbero essere anche 200. Tra questi si dice sia qui anche uno dei fondatori del PKK (Kurdistan Workers Party), Mahsun Korkmaz.
