Turkey: Stop the cycle of violence

Turkey campaign logo

In Spring 2016, War Resisters' International launched a new campaign focusing on the escalating cycle of violence in Turkey. Initiated in response to demands from WRI activists in Turkey, the campaign has included two delegation visits to Southeast Turkey and Istanbul, a report and a research document on the situation in the country, a petition calling on the European Union not to lose sight of the situation in Turkey and to take action on the escalating violence in the country, an advocacy trip by human rights defenders from Turkey to Europe, and a number of observer visits to the trials of human rights defenders in the country. More recently, we have been working on organising a nonviolence training to take place with the participation of peace and human rights activists in the country.
