Newroz in Diyarbakir, Turkey

Newroz, Kurdish new year, is a celebration marked in Turkey by deep suspicion between Kurds and the Turkish government. Political violence was expected, and the government banned celebrations in both Istanbul and Ankara. In the morning, heavily armed police killed a young man who refused to open his bag and wielded a knife. Nevertheless, celebrations continued relatively peacefully between the allotted hours of 11am and 3pm. March 21, 2017

Over the years, Newroz has become increasingly politicized for Turkish Kurds, who use it as an opportunity to speak out about their right to self-determination and nationhood. As a result, the Turkish government has controlled or banned Newroz celebrations in Turkish cities, only sharpening Kurds' resentment. March 21, 2017
