Where are the Assyrians?

Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) Mardin Deputy Erol Dara said, “Once upon a time, Ezidis were living in Anatolia. But they migrated. Alewis are like them. There is no freedom of religion in this country. Djemevis shall be opened as soon as possible. In fact, Alewis should decide this!” and added, “We would not live in comfort unless the Kudish issue is solved. Do you know any administrator who is assyrian? Why isn’t there a high level assyrian administrator? Why is Ragıp Zarakolu in jail? Why were the journalists sentenced? Religion should not be stated in identification cards. The Assyrians can not learn their native language here.”
 
Cultures diminish

Yetvard Danzikyan, coloumn writer of Agos said, “Those having been oppressed have reached today’s condition. The State should find a solution,” and added , “The number of cultures in this country is rapidly decreasing. The State is able to add articles to make possible for the origins of cultures to live on. Greek and Armenian channels can be activated on the Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT)”.
