The first edition of sanat vehayat was removed from the news stands by the Turkish government because it contained the word “Kurdistan”.� But the political magazine was not discouraged, later re-releasing that edition with the word Kurdistan crossed out with black marker.
During my visit to the Asia side of Istanbul I had a chance to visit the modest headquarters/social club of the radical magazine. A representative took the time to answer my questions and explain why and how they do what they do, and just what the situation is for the publishers of a magazine that is politically on the opposite side of the spectrum from a conservative government that has little concern for press freedom.
