Pzt, Eki

I’m writing to you today on behalf of the DİSK Basın-İş journalists union. My name is Faruk Eren – the chair of the union. For years, our union fought to organize among a vast group
from journalists to printing house workers in Turkey.

For a long time, freedom of expression and the press has been under great pressure in Turkey; the same goes for democracy. Today, close to 150 journalists are in prison – one of
whom is a colleague of yours, Musa Kart. These days, we’re in an era in which we’re struggling to make our voices heard as our colleagues languish in Turkey’s prisons.

At a time like this, we have a request from you, cartoonists: Draw a cartoon for Musa Kart and all of Turkey’s jailed journalists and send them to us. As DİSK Basın-İş, we’ll publish them on social media as part of our new campaign.

We’ve organized a number of campaigns to help secure the release of our colleagues, and I can’t imagine help from a better place than you, cartoonists, for our present project. I have no doubt your cartoons will leave a lasting impression. That’s because, at the end of the day, solidarity helps all of us.
