In recent years, Turkey has experienced a sharp declining trend in almost all democratic indicators, including civil, political, economic and social rights, freedom of expression and media. Apart from these, the violation of human rights against women and children have been in a disturbingly rising pattern. However, the situation deteriorated substantially in the aftermath of the attempted, doubtful coup of July, 2016.
After the failed coup, Turkish regime boosted the witch-hunt (which the government started after uncovering of their huge bribery) under an umbrella of the state of emergency calling the coup attempt "a gift from God".
By the end of August 2017, there are 668 children under age 6 in jails with their mothers who are denied their right to nutritious food and access to basic healthcare.
Age Number of children
0-12 months 149
1-3 years 381
4-6 years 127
The mothers of these children are just 668 of 17,000 women who have imprisoned allegedly, who face torture, abuse, and ill-treatment in Turkey prisons, not having a fair trial.
- 147,932 got sacked
- 130,214 detained
- 62,211 arrested
- 3,003 schools, dormitories, and universities shut down
- 5,946 academics lost jobs
- 4,463 judges, prosecutors dismissed
- 187 media outlets shut down
- 308 journalists arrested
as of December 5, 2017, with increase day after day
So, I think it is an important time for everyone to collaborate, from all parts of the world, regardless of ethnicity, nationality, and creed, hand in hand, to stop this tragedy, to support babies, women, journalists, judges, prosecutors, human rights defenders (incl. Amnesty International's Turkey staff) and many innocent others who are crushed under tyranny of Turkish dictatorial regime, who are imprisoned without any evidence, any trial.
It is an important time to show that we can really succor each other from other parts of the world!
Let us demonstrate that it is possible to change, to put pressure on a dictatorial regime and to force the authoritarians to follow democracy with the solidarity of nations.
Let us request from related organizations worldwide to put pressure on Turkish Government to:
- release mothers of 668 babies at least on pending trial,
- stop torture and ill-treatment against detainees and prisoners, including especially against women,
- stop witch-hunt under the umbrella of state of emergency regime, dismissing, detaining and imprisoning people allegedly,
- release human rights defenders, including Amnesty International Turkey staff.
- stop abducting people by mafiatic ways
I hope we all, together with you, will be able to mobilize some related organizations including United Nations, European Court of Human Rights and parliaments of most countries as much as possible.
And I hope this petition will also be an example of solidarity of nations, an example that will give hope to all victims of unlawfulness around the world.
