Dear Colleagues,

In Turkey, since 16 August 2015, there has been 58 officially confirmed, open-ended and round-the-clock curfews in at least 19 districts of 7 cities. Human causalities increase day by day. You can find more info about the situation in the following links..

1. Fact sheet by Human Rights Foundation of Turkey http://en.tihv.org.tr/fact-sheet-on-declared-curfews-in-turkey-between-11-december-2015-8-january-2016/

2. Call by Amnesty International http://www.amnestyusa.org/get-involved/take-action-now/turkey-stop-imposing-arbitrary-restrictions-on-freedom-of-movement-ua-616

A group of academics launched a petition in Turkey, signed by 1128 academics in Turkey and supported by 356 international ones until yesterday, including David Harvey, Noam Chomsky, Etienne Balibar, Erik Swyngedouw, Judith Butler and many others..

And yesterday, after a very brutal attack on tourists in İstanbul by the ISIS; TR President Erdoğan made a defiant speech, mostly attacking on this petition and those who signed it.

Hereby, info by Guardian on this issue:
'In a typically defiant speech Erdoğan attacked foreign academics and writers, including Noam Chomsky for criticism of his government.
He said: “Pick a side. You are either on the side of the Turkish government, or you’re on the side of the terrorists'. (http://www.theguardian.com/world/live/2016/jan/12/istanbul-explosion-several-reported-killed-in-tourist-area-live-updates  )

Just 2 hours after this speech, Turkish Higher Education Council announced that it will launch an investigation against those who signed in Turkey. In this situation supporting the academics in Turkey is much more crucial..

I would like to ask you to sign this petition in order to show solidarity and if it is possible to convey this message to your colleagues.

You can sign the petition by sending a mail (stating your name, position and university) to Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam. Necesita tener JavaScript habilitado para poder verlo.

Thank you very much for your interest.

Best regards
