      has ordered the removal of posters announcing a March 8 International
      Women’s Day panel because it included pictures of Marxist theoretician Rosa
      Luxemburg and members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’
      Party<http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/PKK>
      (PKK).

      “Who is this Rosa?” a member of the southeastern province’s police force
      reportedly asked the head of the panel’s organizing committee, Şaneşin
      Aydın, according to the online bianet news portal.

      The court banned the posters on the grounds that that they constituted
      propaganda for the PKK <http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/PKK> since the
      announcement featuredPKK <http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/PKK> members.

      The posters for the panel, “Your way is our way; your words are our words,”
      included pictures of the
      German<http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/German> Marxist
      theoretician, who was murdered in 1919, as well as Sakine Cansız, Fidan
      Doğan, and Leyla Söylemez, three members of the
      PKK<http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/PKK> that

      9. Also included was Clara Zetkin, a comrade of Luxemburg, as well as
      executed Iraqi Kurdish activist Leyla Qasım.

      “What do you mean by saying ‘from Rosa to Sakine?’” the police officer
      reportedly asked Aydın.
