Reblog: EU commission letter to Turkey on renewing accession negotiations


The letter on the deal the EU made with Turkey has finally been made public. Member of the European Parliament Marietje Schaake has published it together with her thoughts on the situation in Turkey.

This paragraph, in my opinion, sums- up the situation in Turkey:

“While the EU seemed to be focusing only on the refugee crisis, over the past few months, the situation in Turkey has slid to worrying proportions. Leading journalists have been arrested, there have been a number of high-profile terror attacks and the government is intensifying its campaign in South-East Turkey against the PKK. This fight against terrorists has led to many civilian casualties and a curfew being enforced for many weeks.”

You can read the whole blog, including a copy of the letter in Marietje Schaake’s blog here

    Maybe the world can have a rational discussion about the ills suffered throughout mankind when people realise all religion is a man made fairytale. Once logic and rationality can be restored we may begin to fix this broken planet.
