Stand in Solidarity with Turkish Academics

IT'S TIME TO SHOW OUR SOLIDARITY 

Turkish academics who exercised their academic freedom are facing criminal charges in their country.

Trials began in early December and are expected to continue through to April 2018.

Since July 2016, the Turkish government has dismissed thousands of academics without providing any individualized justification or evidence for their dismissal. If convicted, these academics face years in jail for exercising their academic freedom.

It is important that our academic community show solidarity with our colleagues in Turkey.

Make a donation and send a letter to the President of Turkey.
