Serj Tankian has called to join campaign launched by the Amnesty International calling to end use of force against peaceful protesters in Turkey.
Tankian posted the link of the Take Action Now campaign on his Facebook.
“Today’s Turkey is a sad reality of a polarized society naively supported by the West as a model Middle Eastern ‘democracy’- one with powerful control over the media, and the most journalists in jail in the world.
Turkey needs a strong awakening of this type-hopefully the beneficiaries will be justice, equity, historical reflection and the like instead of more repression,” he wrote.
