The Struggle of Turkey’s Kurds

Rights advocate Leyla Zana tells the story of her struggle as a member of the Kurdish ethnic minority in Turkey. Zana describes how she and her husband were considered traitors for advocating for the basic freedoms of the repressed Kurds. She recounts the imprisonment and torture she endured for questioning her government and speaking out for the rights of Kurds in Turkey and beyond. Despite the harrowing experience she faced, Zana expresses her optimism for the future as peace, freedom, and democracy begin to take root all over the world.
