Solidarity group holds a demonstration in DC for Turkey's dismissed educators

Support for Nuriye Gülmen and Semih Özakça, two dismissed educators from Turkey who have been on a hunger strike for over two months in protest of their unlawful dismissal, has grown further within the past week.

A number of civil society groups and politicians expressed their support for Gülmen and Özakça, as well as, for all other individuals whose rights have been violated under the ongoing massive crackdown of Turkey’s current government.

At various platforms, people demanded justice for all victims of the decrees of the government passed in reference to emergency law, which was declared last year in August as a response to a failed coup attempt.

Citizens of Turkey living in the USA also held a demonstration in front of the White House on Saturday (May 13) to show support for Gülmen and Özakça and for all others who have been targeted under emergency laws.

Organized by Solidarity Platform for Democracy in Turkey, the protest was attended by a group of individuals demanding ‘rule of law in Turkey to be put back into practice and for democracy to be embraced’.

Speaking to BirGün reporter Ömür Keyif Şahin, demonstrators expressed their concerns about ‘continued violations of rights in Turkey’ and the ‘decline in enforcement of democratic principles.’
