TAKE ACTION ; STAND UP FOR HUMAN RIGHTS IN TURKEY ON INTERNATIONAL DAY OF HUMAN RIGHTS, DECEMBER 10TH

On December 10th, Human Rights Day, we stand up for our rights and those of others. The absence of equality, justice, and freedom causes violence and prevents peace as we are seeing today in Turkey.  Human rights are relevant to all of us, every day and on this day in particular, we are going to hold a bigger and better rally in the center of Manhattan.  Our last vigil and peaceful protest (made possible by you!) was very successful. More than 500 people are expected to be in attendance on December 10th. By working together, we can have a bold voice for a great impact. Please show up and be a part of the protest in New York that day!

2. Visibility is fundamental to creating awareness about the ill-treatment of people, especially young children and babies in jail, in Turkey. AST will design and display an 8-second digital billboard advertisement for 4 weeks. This 14’ x 48’ billboard placement has the potential of reaching over 1.6 million viewers.

FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE

CALLING EVERY DISSIDENT ABROAD AS TERRORIST, ERDOGAN VOWS TO KILL “TERRORISTS”(!) BY JUSTIFYING THIS ATTEMPT WITH A REFERRAL TO THE OPERATION AGAINST BAGHDADI

It has now been over three years since the failed coup attempt and the Turkish government has been targeting its dissident citizens abroad since then. Until very lately, the issue was a concern of countries where some kidnappings and abductions took place and where authorities acceded to Ankara’s demands for their extradition.

However, lately, The U.S. administration also came to face the unpleasant reality of such inhumane practices after the unlawful arrests and imprisonments of American citizens in Turkey. Moreover, while opponents of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan have been captured in Moldova, Ukraine, Kosovo, Malaysia, Gabon, and many other countries, last year Erdogan’s spokesperson Ibrahim Kalin hinted that Turkey would conduct such operations on the U.S. soil as well. Following all these intimidations in terms of human rights, this week we faced the most concrete and frightening threat voiced by the Turkish President. While giving a speech on recent happenings in Syria and Baghdadi’s death, Erdogan said Turkey’s actions would be justified in targeting individuals living in foreign countries if these individuals are viewed as terrorists by them and labeled as threats to national security. President Erdogan also added that he hoped he could deliver “good news” on this issue soon.

We emphasize our great concern about such targeting threats and urge the U.S. authorities to seek clarification from the Turkish administration over these threatening remarks. In this respect, a determined stance by the U.S. would play a deterring role for any reckless attempt by the Turkish government against Turkish dissidents living in the U.S.

Valizdeki Bebek

Kimi zaman valizde … konforsuz belki… her şeyden habersiz, bir bebek sessizliğiyle sınırları aşmak zorundayız. “ Dünya benim evimdir” diyebilmek için…
Rana hanım’a da yağmurlu, Karlı yollarda sert rüzgara karşı yürüyeceği bir sahnede rol verilmiş. Anne olmanın, kadın olmanın, eş olmanın verdiği bir güç ile bu sahnenin hakkını vermiş ve şimdi yeniden başka “ bilinmezleri” aydınlatmak için çetin bir yolculuğa daha başlamış…
