Let us rebuild our cultural togetherness!

Turkey has spent its last 30 years with the terror problem that is unclear what purpose it serves; this problem has almost incorporated a business and become the subcontractor of many hidden enemies. These unrecoverable lost years have affected the lives of current and future generations negatively.


Unfortunately, nowadays, the pillages winning new bids from dirty powers again, continue to assault our society's serenity.
While all these take place, a political party marketing themselves as the spokesmen of Kurdish people and the defender of their rights has fallen into the carelessness and infidelity of declaring “democratic autonomy”. With this attitude they present, it is once more declared that their actual problem is not to solve Kurdish people's problems but to seek their own sovereignty.

Turks, Kurds, Lazes, Circassians, in short, everyone has problems in this country. Joys, sorrows, problems and troubles of nations are all one. This is what makes a nation “a nation”. Not only no problem can be solved by ethnic nationalism, but also this is overtly separatism. Solution of problems will be possible by bracing up on our most valuable assets and our cultural togetherness which makes us “us”. Giving credit to those who enforce separation as solution instead of conserving the cultural richness we have is a betrayal to not only our past but also our future.

Besides, despite these circumstances, there is great effort for shifting development from the west towards the east in the recent years. There are regional development projects which are under way. However, they almost strain every nerve to maintain the terror environment with tattered discourses they have inherited from the past.

The power governing Turkey asked a very simple question:
