Title: Protest outside Turkish Embassy, July 2017
Description: Amnesty International members and staff along side supporters from RSF, Index on censorship and English Pen outside the Turkish Embassy In London, England, 12th July, 2017.

Activists in more than 30 countries will join protests outside Turkish embassies this week demanding the release of Amnesty International Turkey’s Chair and Director as well as other prominent human rights defenders behind bars amid a spiralling crackdown. The demonstrations mark one month since the organisation’s Chair, Taner Kiliç, was remanded in prison on baseless charges, and five days since the Director, Idil Eser, was detained alongside seven other prominent human rights activists. They all face criminal investigations on the absurd suspicion of being members of an ‘armed terrorist organisation’. Amnesty International Ireland will hold a demonstration outside the Turkish embassy on Wednesday, 12 July at 1pm.
