Turkey election: 'Fight' for Kurdish identity

It is the final week of campaigning before Turkey's general election on June 7th.

The votes of Turkey's 15 million Kurds could decide whether the governing AK Party consolidates its grip on power or whether it is deprived of its majority by the pro-Kurdish HDP party crossing the parliamentary threshold.
