Boycott Travel & Trade with Turkey - 686 Babies & 17,000+ Mothers Imprisoned by President

This petition had 5,255 supporters

Over 686 babies and 17,000+ women and their husbands are imprisoned in Turkey by Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan. Many of these people are imprisoned for simply not agreeing with the Turkish President. They have not been charged nor have they had a date set for trial. The women, including teachers, journalists, judges, and victims of war, are in limbo, many women separated from their babies. A large amount of women have been subject to rape and torture. When they were arrested their businesses and properties amounting to 42 billion dollars were taken from them by president Erdogan. We need to make a passive protest against President Erdogan‬. Tourism and trade puts a lot of money in his bank and money is his interest. We must now please boycott trade and travel. Do not go to Turkey on principle and I ask that countries please stop trading with Turkey.

Turkey is dangerous, especially for any LGBT people. Although homosexuality is legal in Turkey, it is frowned upon and President Erdogan is a known homophobic and is spreading his homophobia amongst his people and not giving them a voice.

We will reinstate tourism and trade when Erdogan releases these people, returns their belongings to them and/or gives them a fair trial. He has imprisoned 437+ judges so he will have to either release them or appoint others.
All these people have not been charged or proven guilty of terrorism or anything so they are entitled by European law to have a fair trial. If necessary judges and lawyers from other countries should act for these people. If Erdogan doesn't allow these trials, why? Is it because he knows he has no proof against these women and their babies and these young and old men? Will he let them rot in jail while he enjoys their hard earned money?

Also ‪the Turkish President @RT_Erdogan‬ continues to purchase weapons from the UK Prime Minister Theresa May, and the U.S. have 50 nuclear Hydrogen weapons stored in a base in Turkey. Are the UK and US involved? Is Turkey to follow Syria in a genocidal war? Turkey is not safe, Boycott Turkey for the sake of the dead women children and babies. Some of them had the choice of staying and getting locked up or freedom. You will see that many families who chose freedom drowned in their desperate attempts to leave the hell that is now Turkey. Please sign this petition so that this subject may be heard by the UK Parliament and discussed worldwide. Until trade with Turkey is stopped please #BoycottTurkey yourselves, do not travel there, unless you can help the situation and stop these terrible crimes being committed by President Erdogan‬ and his associates. #BoycottTurkey
