Release Emine Demir from prison sign now

We the undersigned submit this petition asking for the release of Emine Demire from Diyarbakır Prison...

In December 2010 Emine Demir (a 24 year old newspaper editor for Azadiya Welat) was sentenced to a ridiculous 138 years imprisonment charged under terrorist laws and allegedly spreading propaganda for the PKK. Emine Demir is innocent, she is not a terrorist and was not spreading propaganda. She worked for a newspaper and was reporting and editing news. I understand you and your government have certain issues over freedom of speech and through further investigation discovered that there are many other Kurdish reporters locked up serving vast sentences which do not fit the 'crime', the 'crime' being reporting news and exercising free speech. We are asking you to give Emine Demir her freedom and her life back, many changes are sweeping across the Middle East and Europe, many political and social systems are being challenged, We hope you can find the justice in your system to allow Emine to walk free, the eyes of the world are upon Turkey at this moment in time, for many different reasons and also with Turkey wanting to play their part within the European Community it would be a wise decision for you to make. Please re-open the case for Emine Demir, please see the injustice and give back her freedom, she is a young woman who has no reason to have her life stolen from her. This is not a political petition, we are of many different cultures and ideologies but to lock up a human being for 138 years for editing and reporting news is insane and we as human beings cannot tolerate such behaviour. Release Emine Demir from prison, you can make the right choice, the world is watching.
