Gunaz TV sign now

Sayэn Tьrkiye Cumhuriyeti Bьyьkelзisi, Nabi Юensoy, Aydemir Erman, ve Akin Alptuna.

Bu mektubu son gьnlerde AB-Tьrkiye bilgi aрэ ABHaberde yayэnlanan bir rapora dikkat зekmek iзin yazэyoruz. ABHaber bu raporda Эran hьkьmetinin T.C. hьkьmetinden istediрi muhalefetteki Azeri Tьrk TV kanalэ Gьnaz TVnin Tьrksat lisansэnэn iptali isteminden bahsetmektedir. Bizler, bцyle bir kьltьrel sindirme harekatэndan son derece endiюeliyiz ve sizden bu endiюemizi T.C. hьkьmetine iletmenizi цnemle rica ediyoruz.

Nisan 2005te Эran Azeri Tьrkleri Gьnaz TV adэnda bir uydu kanalэ kurdular. Юikago, Эllinois merkezli bu kanal, Эran Azeri toplumunun dil ve kьltьr mirasэnэ muhafaza etme amacэnэ gьtmektedir. Kьltьrel ve dil yakэnlэрэ ve aynэ zamanda Azerilerin Tьrk kardeюlerine olan gьveni sebebiyle Gьnaz TV Эran iзinde ve dэюэndaki Azeri toplumunun mьthiю teveccьhьne mazhar olmuюtur. Bu seviyede bir teveccьh bцyle bir medya organэnэn ne kadar gerekli ve geз kalэnmэю bir kurum olduрunu gцstermektedir.

Azeri Tьrkleri Эran yцnetimi altэnda her zaman kьltьrel ve ekonomik ayrэmcэlэрa maruz bэrakэlmэюtэr. Bu ayrэmcэlэрэn tek sebebi kьltьrel farklэlэktэr. Azeri Tьrklerinin kendi anadillerinde eрitim gцrme haklarэ yoktur. Daha kцtьsь, зocuklarэna Azeri Tьrk isimleri verme haklarэ bile yoktur. Eskiden beri yaюamakta olduklarэ topraklarэn Azerice isimleri deрiюtirilmektedir. Bu sindirme gayretlerine raрmen Эran Azeri Tьrk toplumu kьltьrel mirasэnэ, dilini, geleneklerini ve mьziрini muhafaza etmeyi baюarmэюtэr.

Эran Azeri Tьrk toplumu temel insan haklarэnэn korunmasэ iзin defalarca Эran yцnetiminden istekte bulunmuюtur. Aюaрэdaki adreste UNESCOya gцnderilen, anadil haklarэnэn iadesini isteyen dilekзeyi gцrebilirsiniz:

Эran Эslam Cumhuriyetinin isteрi doрrultusunda Gьnaz TVnin Tьrksat lisansэnэn iptal edileceрine dair sцylentiler artmaktadэr. Bizler buradan sizin vasэtanэzla Tьrkiye Cumhuriyetinin bu isteрi reddetmesini bekliyoruz. Bцyle yapmakla Tьrk Hьkьmeti ifade ve basэn цzgьrlьрьne olan saygэsэnэ gцstermiю olacaktэr. Bu юekilde bir tepki Эran Azeri Tьrk toplumunun kьltьrel varlэрэnэ devam ettirmesi iзin зok цnemlidir.

Saygэlarэmla,

Dear Mr. Nabi Юensoy, Mr. Aydemir Erman, Mr. Akin Alptuna

We are writing to bring your attention to a recently published report by the EU-Turkey information network ABHaber . In their report, ABHaber points to a request made by the Iranian government to the Turkish government to find a way to revoke the Turksat license of the opposition Azeri Turkish TV channel, Guney Azerbayca Television, Gunaz TV. We are extremely concerned about this attempt at cultural suppression, and urge you to pass this concern onto the Turkish government.

In April 2005, Iran Azeri Turks started a satellite TV station called Gunaz TV. Based in Chicago, IL, this station aims to help the Iran Azeri nation to further preserve its language and cultural heritage. Due to cultural and lingual proximity, as well as the trust Azeris have in their Turkish brothers, Gunaz TV has received an overwhelmingly positive response from the large Azeri audience both within Iran and outside. This would indicate that this media presence is much needed and long overdue.

Azeri Turks have always suffered cultural and economic discrimination at the hands of Iran. The only reason for this discrimination is because of cultural difference. Azeri Turks are forbidden to educate their youth in their mother tongue. Worse, they cannot even give Azeri Turkish names to their children. The geographical names of their historical lands are also being changed to non-Azeri names. Despite this suppression, the Iran Azeri Turks have preserved their cultural heritage, language, traditions and music.

Iran Azeri Turks have repeatedly asked the Iranian Authorities for basic human rights. Please see a recent petition sent to the UNESCO, which asks for mother tongue rights: http://www.petitiononline.com/anadil/.

Rumours abound that that the Gunaz TV Turksat license is in danger of suspension because of the request from Islamic Republic of Iran. We hereby urge the Turkish Government, through you, to reject this request. In so doing, the Turkish government will show that it respects freedom of speech and freedom of the press, especially when it comes to the cultural survival of a nation the Iran Azeri Turk nation.
