Trouble in Kurdistan

Trouble in Kurdistan, originally uploaded by Paulien Maria.

Since February there are protests in Northern Iraq / Kurdistan.

The last days the demonstrations are suppressed violently, yesterday there were almost 100 wounded, Sunday about 50.

My Kurdish partner M. is worried.

The international press has been almost absent the last months.

I found this report in English, it is already one month old, but gives a lot of information:

And these short ones, which are more recent:

CNN

Reporters without Borders

UPDATE April 22th 2011: Fred Branfman gave me the following links:
