Arzu Torun Must Be Released Immediately!

In Turkey, which is known by ongoing violation of freedom of thought and long-years of imprisonment of many journalists, new attacks, arrestments and attempts of disappearing people under police custody are recently being of the agenda. While we are worried about the lives of some of the people who have been taken into custody because of letting them to speak with nobody and existence of torture in Turkey, it is being learned that Arzu Torun and somebody else together with her have been kidnapped by the police.

Verhindern wir neue Fälle von Verschwindenlassen in der Türkei!
Arzu Torun muss unverzüglich freigelassen werden!

Es ist bekannt, dass die Türkei ständig die Menschenrechte und die Meinungsfreiheit verletzt und viele Journalisten seit mehreren Jahren im Gefängnis sitzen. Nun sind neue Fälle von Angriffen, Festnahmen und Entführungen bekannt geworden. Da den Festgenommenen kein Kontakt zum Rechtsanwalt und ihren Verwandten gewährt wird und die Türkei Folter weiterhin anwendet, ist man sehr besorgt um das Leben der Festgenommenen. Weiterhin gibt die Entführung von Frau Arzu Torun und ihrem Begleiter Anlass zur Sorge um neue Fälle von Verschwindenlassen.

Der Kampf von Flüchtlingen braucht Geld!

Die Karawane ist maßgeblich auf Spenden angewiesen. Unsere Organisation besteht überwiegend aus Flüchtlingen, die (wenn überhaupt) nur über sehr geringe finanzielle Mittel verfügen. Aus diesem Grunde haben wir 2008 den „Förderverein Karawane e. V.” gegründet. Unser Verein ist als gemeinnützig anerkannt und kann deswegen auf Wunsch Spendenquittungen ausstellen, so dass sie steuerlich absetzbar sind. Wenn bei der Überweisung die Adresse mit angegeben wird, verschicken wir die Spendenbescheinigung automatisch spätestens am Anfang des Folgejahres.
