We must act now!!

There are two types of Kurds those who are  fat, rich and bedazzled by the economical bubble. Then there are those in Kubani, and the poor villages throughout Kurdistan. Iraqi Kurds cannot stand by and watch, the least they can do is to stop the hundreds of truckloads of Turkish goods entering Kurdistan every day. Some may argue that we cannot afford to stop food entering the country and yes they are right it will be difficult.  Yet our politicians have placed us in this situation by the systematic destruction of Kurdish village life, agriculture, Kurdish crafts and small industrial units. Everything has been lost to the ready availability of imports from neighbouring countries! In Kurdistan we now look to the south (Baghdad) for our dollars and to the north and east for our food and goods.
