Cette lettre est un article écrit par la journaliste politique turque Ece Temelkuran. Trés célèbre dans son pays, cette commentatrice politique c’est attirée les foudres du parti au pouvoir et a été licenciée suite à des pressions, il y a un an et demi maintenant, après avoir écrit des articles notamment sur la situation de la population kurde.

[Editor’s Note: Here are two articles written by one of Turkey’s best-known journalists and political commentators Ece Temelkuran in which she criticized the regime’s repressive policy towards journalists and its militaristic policy towards Kurds, a policy that culminated recently in the Uludere massacre that killed over 35 people among them 19 kids. Ece Tumlekuran’s articles were published last week on her former newspaper Habertuk and resulted in her firing from the newspaper under what seemingly was a political pressure from the political establishment.]
