Release Human Rights Activists Unfairly Detained

Target: Süleyman Soylu, Interior Minister of Turkey

Goal: Release ten human rights activists unfairly detained by Turkish police.

Turkish police have forcefully detained ten human rights activists, including a director for Amnesty International. These activists are being held without charge and no reason for their arrest has been given.

This act by Turkish police is only the latest in a string of arrests and abuses by the Turkish government. These men and women who were arrested are individuals who were doing nothing other than defending and fighting for equal rights for all. No government should deem such actions as threatening.

Turkey must release these activists, who come from different countries, immediately. Not only is it alarming that they were arrested without charge, but also that they are still detained without charge and without updates on their well being. Demand their release.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Soylu,

Ten individuals, all human rights activists from around the world, have been arrested. They are being held without charge. This is only the latest in a series of human rights abuses in your country.

The men and woman your nation has detained have done nothing wrong. If Turkey really wants to thrive as a nation and be welcomed into international agreements and deals, it must take human rights seriously. I demand that you take a first step in doing so by releasing these activists.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
