The honor and conscience of our geography, human rights activists, the Stateless Journalist Doğan Özgüden is targeted in Brussels, the European Union’s capital where he has been living in exile for 44 years and nationalists try to turn him into a target of their racist assaults, threats, slanders and lynch campaigns.
The nationalist circles initiate their assaults and campaigns during the commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the 1915 Genocide / Massacre and the nationalist assaults and campaigns after the Massacre of Hrant Dink were the same. This is meaningful.
We know very well the studies which were carried on for more than 60 years, consistent freedom and equality struggles against injustice and unfairness, uncompromising attitude against the power elites in Turkey, honorable rising against the denialist official thesis in respect of the 1915 Genocide / Massacre of the Journalist Doğan Özgüden who was brought down to a “Stateless” position and we are also aware that his consistent, upright stance made Doğan Özgüden the target of the racist, nationalist and denialist circles of the Turkish State.
Doğan Özgüden is our conscience, Doğan Özgüden is not alone!
We declare our solidarity and support to our conscience and we also declare that we are with the Stateless Journalist, and also we call progressivists who live in Belgium and migrated from these lands for duty and we call all parties concerned for sensitivity and we ask them to take due precautions.
