Arrived!

So yesterday I arrived safely in Wan :)
I am so beyond happy to be here in Kurdistan. To be and breathe everything Kurdish. 💚❤️💛

Yesterday was 30th of August, victory day for Turkey. Yani as if they don’t praise that dog Ataturk enough already, yesterday was all about him. Turkish flags eve-ry-where. You even get a fine if you don’t put up a flag.
On the other hand there are so much more Kurdish flags here in Wan and that makes me even more proud!

I’m leaving for Kurdistan you guys!
This is the plan: Wan - Batman - Diyarbekir - Merdin

Then we will go to Turkey Pamukale and Izmir.

I hope my dark skin offends you. I hope pronouncing my name forces you to twist your tongue in ways you never imagined. I hope me speaking loudly to my parents in our language hurts your ears. I hope our fragrant food burns your nose. I am not here for you.

We are not here for you.

Fucked…. 

I hope that this image travels the world …

“While newspapers and television talk about the lives of celebrities, the chief of the Kayapo tribe received the worst news of his life: Dilma, “The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant (the third largest in the world). It is the death sentence for all the people near the river because the dam will flood 400,000 hectares of forest. More than 40,000 Indians will have to find another place to live. The natural habitat destruction, deforestation and the disappearance of many species is a fact.”
What moves me in my very bowels , making me ashamed of being part of Western culture, is the reaction of the chief of the Kayapo community when he learned of the decision—his gesture of dignity and helplessness before the advance of capitalist progress, modern predatory civilization that does not respect the differences …

But we know that a picture is worth a thousand words, showing the reality of the true price of our bourgeois “quality of life”.

400,000 hectares gone, forever, in the name of “progress”.
