There is a camp that sets up outside the gates of our local park nearly every year.
We live in a predominantly turkish neighbourhood and although they are a lovely peaceful people, there is some unrest amongst them.
It rarely spills out for us non turks to see but occasionally there is graffiti declaring that they want ‘kurds out’ or similar. I don’t profess to understand the intricacies of the difficulties between the kurds and the turks but it is long standing and unlikely to end any time soon.
Whilst I sympathise with lots of people’s plights, the weight that this week long vigil is attempting to give to the situation is somewhat ruined by the peppering of dreadful spellings on their huge poster.
I was particularly horrified by the use of ‘freshold’ instead of ‘threshold’.
