Trend Update: Turkey, Pro Kurd Politicians Arrested, November 2016

November 4, 2016: President Recep Erdogan of Turkey has shut down social media. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and WhatsApp are examples. WhatsApp was instrumental in the coup attempt this past summer.

Pro-Kurdish political figures have been arrested and detained. Violence in Pro-Kurd areas is increasing as result.

Economic conditions are deteriorating in Turkey. President Erdogan has reportedly sold U.S. Treasuries. The Turkish Lira is dropping in value and is at its lowest level historically. The stock market continues to decline. The ten year bond is yielding 10.37% and rising.

Remember, the United States has nuclear weapons at the Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey.

Erdogan’s actions and posturing continue to be aggressive.
