Very interesting Sohel Ahmed,

So you think "the Turkish people were satisfied of individual freedoms, "

Very interesting that people talk about Turks from another country. More freedom ha? We are living pure Hitler facism now. You are really comic.

I write here and everyday waiting that my door will be forced open 5.00 am and take me into a cell, waiting for more than a year untill I learn with what I am being charged with. All Turkish intellectuals, journalists, university professors and writers, and the only and just only crime in Turkiye now is being against AKP policies on strategies in the world and economical unmanagement and selling everything we habve to other countries and stopping all manufacture and agriculture and raising our debt to foreign countries twice that we had in 80 years, which is the easiest road to loose all the freedom we have as a nation and individually. The rate of unemployment is increasing like a snowball, since the government closed or caused bankrupt all our factories. The government raised income taxes and VAT. We give 1/2 as income tax and 1/4 as VAT. We use the most expensive fuel oil and natural gas because of the taxes. Villagers are starving and gave up agriculture and livestock farming since instead of profit they are always in loss and their debt increases; so doing nothing is better for them.

There is no external enemy that can do so much harm to a nation as AKP. Taking revenge from secularism, and trying to isolate Turkiye so that they can convert Turkiye to Iran.

So we are so free! so free!, you can't imagine dear Sohel.
