PEN Canada members have joined a solidarity campaign launched by Amnesty International on Twitter for release of imprisoned journalists in Turkey.
Members of the organization sent a joint message of solidarity to Turkey’s imprisoned journalists by taking photos with #FreeTurkeyMedia signs and posting them on social media.
AI launched the campaign on Twitter late in March 2017 to support jailed journalists in Turkey, calling for their release, with the hashtag #FreeTurkeyMedia.
Since then, a Twitter account under the pseudonym @FreeTurkeyMedia has been calling on Twitter users to make a #FreeTurkeyMedia sign, take a photo with it and tweet it with the hashtag to support the release of all journalists in Turkish jails.
To join the campaign for release of journalists in Turkey:
1) Make a #FreeTurkeyMedia sign
2) Take photo
3) Tweet it with hashtag #FreeTurkeyMedia
