Prints – Kurdistan

Playing games while drinking tee in the cultural capital of the Kurds, Amed. Live looks slow.. However, the engine’s noise of the war plane and helicopters are in background, the voice of the street full of young people demonstrating too..

I think the elderly people, who Ive been drinking tee for a little while already have seen to much from this war, from this violence.. I think they are tired and only want tee and games, now…

After a little while, a cohort of young people, demonstrating against the state pops up in the street: they are thousands, they are loud, they are determined. Turning my head in they direction, I want to stand up and take a closer look. However, the hand of a old man, who I’ve been sitting with prevent me to do so, without any word, looking at his eyes, I understand I should just stay on my chair…

A few seconds laters, I notice that some people are warning AK47: they are the police, and take care of the security here. I did not feel so safe as they were around.
