Petitions for Turkey’s oppressed lawyers and journalists

This week we received information about two important petitions that need your support.

The first is a Change.org petition for Selçuk Kozağaçlı and his colleagues at the Progressive Lawyers’ Association in Turkey who have been in detention without bail since their arrest in January this year:

AVUKATIM/MESLEKTAŞIM DERHÂL SERBEST BIRAKILSIN! RELEASE MY LAWYER/COLLEAGUE RİGHT NOW!

The second calls for justice for journalists in Turkey and is one the European Federation of Journalists’ (EFJ) many efforts in the last two years to oppose government repression of journalists and media workers in Turkey:

Justice for Journalists in Turkey
Journalists are not terrorists. The justice system in Turkey has failed its journalists.

Please sign the petitions and share widely!
