Pointing out that 34 journalists are still in prison and that only one fifth of the journalists are employed under the Press Labour Act while the others have been employed without any social security, several journalists organizations in Turkey, with support from EFJ, IFJ, EJN and RSF have stated in their campaign demanding "freedom for information and freedom of expression in Turkey where thousands of journalists are being sued”.

The petition can be read and signed on EFJ dedicated webpage .
