We'll be holding another rally outside the Turkish Embassy on behalf of the human rights of peaceful protesters in Turkey. We'll also be calling on the Turkish government to respect the fundamental human right of free expression in general. In the words of John Dalhuisen, Amnesty International’s Director for Europe and Central Asia,
“The right to freedom of expression is under attack in Turkey. Hundreds of abusive prosecutions are brought against activists, journalists, writers and lawyers. It is one of Turkey’s most entrenched human rights problems.”
Please join us as we exercise our own precious right to free speech in solidarity with those whose rights are being denied.
You can also take action online in solidarity with the Turkish protesters.
