The good news is that British muralist Banksy pays tribute and draws attention to Kurdish artist/activist Zehra Dogan who was sentenced to 3 years in prison for a single painting that re-imagined Turkish destruction wrought in Kurdish cities.
In the process, Banksy achieves what the Turkish state failed to do: he makes Dogan a Turk and thus grievously wounds her and every person in Turkish jails for their pro-Kurdish rights political activism. And that is the awful news.
Now every newspaper from here to Timbuktu reporting on this new mural in New York City mentions Zehra Dogan’s Turkishness, all because Banksy committed a serious factual error.
His fans have pointed out this mistake repeatedly on his Instagram page, but he has not bothered to issue a correction. It now becomes incumbent on a pro-Kurdish activist to correct his politically offensive error by doting the facts on the mural.
