I have been following the story of Plymouth’s Kurdish community for a while now and have a few blog postings on the topic.  But the story of intimidation and repression goes much deeper and well beyond the city limits of Plymouth…as we knew.

Today Hevallo posted a must-read article on the high-level government complicity (with Turkey) in the harrassment of the Kurdish community in the UK.  The incidents of harrassment and detention are on the rise in the Kurdish communities across the UK.  Read the article.

In Plymouth, another Kurd, Himen Abas, was given a (temporary) reprieve in his deportation struggle.  Abas was detained by police back in early February and was set to be deported earlier this week.
