Young musician appeals: Please help get my journalist mother out of Turkish jail

The Royal Conservatoire in The Hague today issued the following notice. Please share it widely:


‘We would like to ask your attention for our student Aktas Erdogan’s journalist mother. She has been in prison for 7 years in Turkey and on the 5th of November she was given a life sentence. Erdogan: “This demonstration is about the freedom of press and about my mother, so we will be protesting to Turkey. The aim is to have a lot of effect on Turkish authorities in the international arena. In that way we can make their decision change at a higher court.”‘

  1. I thought that the life sentence is for terrorists, assasins, violators…
    Shameful, anyhow. Doesn’t matter what she wrote or said.

    So there is no difference between the American and Turkish government…..

    Dit is een straf tegen de moed van vrij durven denken en doen,
    Helaas, tientallen mensen leven nog steeds in deze omstandigheden.
