Journalists have supported academics who have released a statement titled “We will not be a party to this crime” and called for peace and negotiations to resume.
Over 200 journalists said the following in the statement:
“We find it dangerous in terms of freedom of thought and expression that academics educating future of Turkey are being targeted by certain media outlets and the government for saying ‘we sue for peace’”.
“We want to do journalism in time of peace, not war”
“Over 1,000 academics from Turkey and the world have signed the statement released by Peace for Academics. There is a truth revealed by the fact that the number of signatures has exceeded 2,000 despite all threat and targeting; that is society’s desire to immediately return to peace process.
“We, as journalists suing for peace, declare that we stand with the academics saying ‘We will not be a party to this crime’ and want to do journalism in time of peace, not war”.
