No, no war; children banned this hope in Turkey

...of all the crazy things, Hope is a victim to the "Turkish" politic, children in Turkey cannot hope for Peace in these "sensitive" times.

A regional education administration in Turkey has banned publicity and production of a children’s play, “Environmentalist Rascals”, at local schools for being “anti-war and anti-violence”, the Turkish newspaper Cumhuriyet reports.

The educational authorities in the Akhisar district in western Turkey sent the order to a teacher’s union leader, giving the reason that one of the characters in the play expressed “anti-war” sentiments, while another voiced opinions that were “against violence”.

The order, shared on Twitter by journalist Erk Acarer, said that a play with an anti-war theme would be “problematic” during the “sensitive period” Turkey is going through, referring to the ongoing Turkish military operation in northwest Syria.
