Amnesty International: Turkey: End abuse and reveal extent of injuries

519905_150_2Turkish citizens continue to be beaten, unjustly detained, and abused by police forces amid massive protests.

This violence has got to stop, but only massive international outrage from supporters like you can move the needle now.

Please send an urgent message to authorities demanding an end to the use of excessive force against peaceful protestors. Authorities must restore the right to freedom of expression and assembly. They must also ensure justice by undertaking prompt, independent and impartial investigations into the excessive use of force. For those law enforcement officials found to have ill-treated demonstrators or other members of the public, they must be held accountable.
