SIGN THE PETITION
As academics around the world we strongly condemn the coup attempt carried out by a faction within the Turkish Armed Forces, now identified as the Gulenist junta, on Friday July 15th, 2016.
We stand against this military intervention which threatened the unity and security of the Turkish Republic by attacking the Turkish Parliament, National Intelligence Service Headquarters, Presidential Complex, Special Forces Unit, and many other municipality headquarters and councils, and opening fire on civilians.
We stand with the people of Turkey who took to the streets and stood firmly against the military intervention at the expense of their lives. We expect and make a call to academic institutions, international NGOs and media to recognize and support Turkish people's political will.
We offer our condolences to the 240 martyrs, wish for the wellbeing of the 1492 injured and hope that people of Turkey will recover from this tragedy soon.
