Tell Turkey: free Amnesty staff members İdil Eser, Taner Kılıç and other rights defenders

They dedicate their lives to defending the rights of others. Now they need us.

It should have been an ordinary day for İdil Eser, director of Amnesty Turkey. She was attending a meeting with colleagues in Istanbul, when the police raided the building and arrested them. 

None of them have done anything wrong: Turkey has jailed them, just like they have jailed hundreds of journalists, fuelling the propaganda that human rights defenders are dangerous and must be stopped. 

We won’t stop until they’re all free. Join our call to release the human rights defenders  we will make sure your voice is heard when it’s needed most and let Turkey know the world is watching.
