Kurdistan Diaries: Diyarbakir

Rachel Stacy kept an audio diary of her October 2011 trip through the Kurdish regions of Turkey and Iraq with Chicago-based service group Christian Peacemaker Teams. In this excerpt, Stacy tells the story of a young woman whose humanitarian work on behalf of Kurdish communities in Diyarbakir, Turkey got her into trouble with local authorities.

Stay tuned to Lodge 6 for more excerpts from Stacy’s diaries, or check out my two-part series on poverty and inequality in Iraqi Kurdistan here and here.
