GFTU Sponsors Journalists’ visit to Turkey

The forthcoming referendum in Turkey seeks to give further tyrannical powers to the head of state in his clampdown on democracy, civil rights and opposition movements. The GFTU is pleased to be supporting a visit by two award winning journalists to Turkey over this crucial period to observe the appalling situation that has unfolded with the imprisonment of opposition MPs, mass sackings of public sector workers and academics and the destruction of some Kurdish areas. Reports and articles by the journalists we are supporting will be available to affiliates upon their return.
