DIE WELT CAMPAIGNS FOR ALL JOURNALISTS IN PRISONS

German newspaper Die Welt started a campaign after their Turkey correspondent Deniz Yücel is released from prison. The campaign is for the freedom of all the arrested journalists. A photograph and biography of a journalist will be published each day. The campaign is organised in social media with the tag of #FreeThemAll and with a note;

“Deniz is free since last Friday. However, hundreds of journalists are in prisons around the world. Their only crime is doing their job with passion like Deniz. It is very normal in democratic countries. However, it is very risky in a country like Turkey. Our colleagues did their job bravely despite this risk. They sacrificed their freedom for the freedom of the press. Deniz is with us again, and we owe this to politicians, media managers and many people who campaigned over the last year for his release. They reminded Deniz each day. Now we will remind those who are still in prisons with publishing their portraits.”
