ABSTRACT

 
On March 11, 2012, eleven workers died due to a fire in their accommodation at the large construction site of the Marmara Park Shopping Center in Istanbul. Crime scene specialists from the police determined that probably electric heaters had triggered a short circuit. The workers were doomed by their nylon tents, which were easily flammable, too close together and had only one exit each. It was sheer luck that the fire did not spread to four other workers’ tents. Just after the fire, the official line of accountability was shifted by the responsible construction company. The jurisdictional investigation around the workers’ deaths was followed by a court verdict that awarded the blame to sub-subcontractors of the German Company ECE Group. ECE Group was acquitted after filing a lawsuit to the Supreme Court. MAD Istanbul, an NGO concerned with urban rights and jurisdiction, aimed at problematizing the shift of responsibility zones and questioned the neutrality of the court verdict.

ABSTRACT

 
The destruction of the Roboski monument, erected in 2013 in Diyarbakır, Anatolia to commemorate 34 civilians of Kurdish origin who were victims of a deliberate air strike by the Turkish military in December 2011, is seen as symptomatic of a policy of repression against the Kurdish population.
The Turkish-Kurdish conflict is deep-rooted and ongoing. Kemalist ideology, a cornerstone of the modern Turkish nation-state strives for a homogenous state and for assimilation, respectively non-recognition of the culture of the Kurdish population. Kurds have been resisting state-driven violence and oppression continuously. There is a range of Kurdish monuments which have been forcefully removed by the Turkish government. Several more cases of military attacks, repression and human rights violations are not even being memorised in public space.
