Turkey’s Erdogan stages his own coup – against ALL opposition

Arrests of opposition MPs are currently underway in Turkey. This is an escalation of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s 15-month-long coup against his political opponents. And while there has been widespread condemnation of these arrests, this alone will not bring Turkish democracy back to life. In the latest state crackdown, Turkish authorities have detained 11 lawmakers across the country from the left-wing Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP). Two of those detained are HDP co-chairs Figen Yüksekdağ and Selahattin Demirtaş. There are also arrest warrants out for other HDP MPs relating to what Amnesty International calls “trumped-up terrorism charges”. Erdoğan has sought to link the pro-Kurdish HDP to rebels from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) ever since ending promising peace negotiations with the group in July 2015.
