Ottawa Gezi Platform: illustrated message of solidarity with ODTU Resistance

We stand shoulder to shoulder with our friends in Oslo, Berlin, New York, London, Boston, Goteborg, Metz, Paris, Amsterdam, Dresden, and Frankfurt to offer this symbolic act of tree planting to ODTU faculty and students in Ankara.

Firuz - ODTU

Illustration by Firuz Kutal, Oslo.

We stand by OTDU’s right to follow through all political and legal means of dissent and appeal as outlined by the decision of the university Senate on October 23, 2013. We condemn in strongest possible terms the occupation of ODTU campus by riot police and the illegal destruction of 3000 trees in the middle of the night on October 18. We support the tree planting campaign ODTU is organizing and extend this caricature as a token of our solidarity!
