A Twitter message triggered a long list of heartbreaking human rights violations in the last decade…

A political Twitter phenomenon Twittered this:

Many critical citizens started to subtweet announcing what moments they would not forget and thus would vote against the ruling party. I have read most of them at midnight a few days ago and I got very upset with some of the moments.


TravisandTylerDurden posted this photos. A group of deputies voting to save corrupt ministers. The process led to Reza Zarrab case in the US.

A huge selection can be found either under the Twitter message I shared above or here.

Here is my selection. But, honestly, this is not doing justice. All these are hard to digest… Among a people who continually boast to be merciful, tolerant etc such level of hostility… It is hard not to cry…



This is Kemal Kurkut just before he is shot down by police. The police claimed that he was a suicide bomber but when the moment he was shot was released, it just turned out to be another extra-judicial killing. It is hard to forget this image.

This lovely high school teacher was not presentable enough for the governor. He was scolded and a few days he died of a heart attack.

An image I can never forget. When he was dying, he said I will just be forgotten… Zafer Açıkgözoğlu, a temporary non-unionised laborer, was forced to clean sewer without protective measures. He was infected and died soon afterward.

Metin Lokumcu.
