Friend of the Kurds Dario Fo Dies at 90

Dario Fo the great Italian Nobel Prize winning playwright, actor, composer and director has died at the age of 90. 

Many Kurdish people will know of Dario Fo's powerful prose written to describe the situation of the Kurdish people. 

'Kurdistan lives. It burns in the mind of every single person of the 35 million people who were robbed of their identity and made into refugees in Turkey, Iraq and Europe. It is burning and living in the fires of Newroz and in jails where 12,000 political prisoners are buried in isolation cells. It lives in the memory of those who disappeared and in the scars of those who disappeared and in the scars of those who were tortured. It is burning and living in the mountains of the popular resistance, called terrorism by the western world.'
