This 2013 video is called The Kurdish Rights Alliance.

From British daily The Morning Star:

A TURKISH court charged an army colonel on Wednesday with incitement to murder on the suspicion that he had ordered the killing of Kurds who “disappeared” in the 1990s.

The court in Diyarbakir jailed Colonel Cemal Temizoz pending trial on charges of involvement in alleged summary killings of suspected Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) guerillas.

    TURKEY: A court charged 51 people, including several pro-Kurdish politicians, with membership of the illegal Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) at the weekend.

    Among those charged were several senior officials from a legal pro-Kurdish political party, the Democratic Society Party, which said that the police crackdown was a government act of revenge against the party after it defeated the governing party in last month’s local elections in the mainly Kurdish south-east.
