Humans of Hizmet

A Peacemaking Project by Fitnat M.

What is the injustice we are solving?

Humans of Hizmet will address the current violation of humans rights within Turkey. Men and women, and even elderly and children are imprisoned under undemocratic and degrading conditions. Innocent educators, businessmen and women, lawyers and judges, journalists, and thousands of contributing citizens are detained and imprisoned. These individuals are denied access to basic rights (such as food, water, and even restroom facilities) that every person should have. Individuals are imprisoned for years on end without due process of law, access to a lawyer, or even given a specific hearing date. Freedom of speech and press is largely limited; anyone that disagrees with the government, or even if people do not express compliance, are treated unfairly, ostracized, and imprisoned.
