Brusk Reshvan Supports ROJ TV from Canada

Your Excellency Mr. Anders Fogh Rasmussen,

I hope you are doing well. Before I start my mail I wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

As you are well aware, Turkish authorities in recent weeks have resorted to an orchestrated campaign of accusation and smearing propaganda against the Kurdish satellite television, ROJ TV. The aim of this unjust and antidemocratic endeavour is to divert the attention of public opinion and EU countries from the realities of Turkey and military assaults against Kurdish people.

While Turkish state discriminates against Kurdish language inside Turkey, wants to export its archaic and unacceptable policies to European countries as well.Turkish latest effort is contrary to Turkey's accession to European Union.

Your Excellency;

I, as a Canadian citizen, urge you to defend the right of existence and free broadcasting of ROJ TV and protest against unjust campaign of Turkish authorities. Instead of trying to ban the voice of millions of Kurds, Turkish state must provide TV and radio broadcasts in Kurdish and form institutions to teach Kurdish language and culture to Kurdish people.
I hope this message finds you.

Yours respectfully,

Brusk Reshvan
