DIYARBAKIR - Condemning the confiscation of Xwebûn Newspaper by the police, Licensee Kadri Esen said that they would continue to write despite the obstacles.
Xwebûn Newspaper made a statement to protest the seizure of newspapers by the police, who were taken to Diyarbakır Intercity Bus Terminal Management (DİŞTİ) on September 17 to be sent to Mersin. The Dicle Fırat Journalists Association (DFG), Democratic Regions Party (DBP), Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) Diyarbakır Provincial Organisation and Mesopotamia Language and Culture Research Association (MED-DER) executives and members and journalists participated in the statement made in front of DİŞTİ where the police seized the newspaper.
In the statement, Licensee of Xwebûn Newspaper Kadri Esen said: "We condemn these pressures, seizures and obstructions. This intolerance is actually directed towards Kurdish. The state does not want the publication of a newspaper that publishes in Kurdish.They can confiscate and block our newspapers, but we will continue to do our job. Xwebûn Newspaper will continue to write. They implement this policy so that the Kurds do not gain their freedom and survivee, but to assimilate them. Many Kurdish publications have been published from the Ottoman period to the present day. These publications were banned both at that time and during the Republic period. The name meaning of Xwebûn is a radical dictionary for the Turkish state. Banning Xwebûn in Kurdistan is unacceptable. Under any circumstance, the Free Press and the Kurdish press will work despite the bans."
