Demand safety for journalists!

PLEASE SUPPORT the campaign to protect the safety of journalists in Turkey and to free those in jail - write to your local Member of Parliament (MP), and contact your European parliament representatives, calling on them to take immediate action to stop the crackdown from escalating. And as of early August, there were 64 professional journalists in prison in Turkey - the highest number for any country in the world. See the International Federation of Journalist's campaign webpage at europe.ifj.org/en/pages/turkey-campaign-set-journalists-free - and to find your MP use theyworkforyou.com and for Members of the European Parliament see europarl.org.uk/view/en.

If you are concerned about a colleague who may be working in Turkey then please get in touch via campaigns@nuj.org.uk
