Amnesty International High Tea with Women's Rights Defenders Network
Sat. 10 December 2016, 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm AEDT
Join the Women's Rights Defenders Network for a High Tea to mark Human Rights Day on 10th December!
Lawyer Eren Keskin refuses to give up on justice. In 2014, she was convicted of “insulting the Turkish state” because she spoke out against the killing of a 12-year-old boy by the army. Since then, she has repeatedly faced arrest for articles published in the newspaper she used to edit. The government wants to throw her in jail for speaking out for justice. But Eren will not be silenced. She is a human rights defender.
Eren’s only crime has been to speak out against injustice. And time is running out for her. More trials mean she could be jailed at any time, for a long time. Tell Turkey not to jail Eren.
