Click to read the article in Turkish / Kurdish

Since the day it was launched, bianet has treated the people’ use of their mother tongue and the right to education in mother tongue as a priority. On every February 21, bianet has reported on the statements and demonstrations on the occasion of the Mother Tongue Day.

We picked “justice” as this year’s theme. We repeated the demand for “justice for everyone and every language” in Armenian, Laz language, Georgian, Adyghean, Greek, Pontus Greek, Ladino, Assyrian and Turkish.
