Taner Kilic & the Istanbul 10


As part of a crack down on human rights Turkey has falsely charged 11 human rights activists with terrorism related offences.

Right now, 11 people who have dedicated their lives to defending the human rights of journalists, activists and other dissenting voices in Turkey are themselves in danger. Among them are Amnesty International’s Taner Kılıç and İdil Eser. All are on trial for “terrorism” related crimes – an absurd attempt to choke their human rights activism.

Act Now

  • Tell Turkey to stop persecuting these human rights defenders and drop the charges against them.
