Freedom of expression, civil and political rights


A member of the Union of Education Professionals, a branch of the National Confederation of Civil Servants' Unions, she was dismissed in 2017 because of her political views. As part of the Turkish government's policy of repression of opposition voices, she is also denied the right to travel, work and be elected. In protest, she and her colleagues organised several public actions. Detained and prosecuted, she did not stop her activism. A member of the Human Rights Association since 2016, she also works within the Commission against Racism and Discrimination.
