Amnesty International has created a short video in English in which Amnesty International Researcher, Andrew Gardner, explains the on-going crisis in Turkey.

The video highlights both the nature of the crisis, in which excessive force by police “has reached new levels” and the key role that Amnesty International has played in helping victims and calling attention to what Turkey’s government is doing.

Watch the video, share it, and take part in the action.  Add your voice to the tens of thousands who have already added their names to Amnesty’s call to the Turkish government:

1. Immediately end the excessive use of force against peaceful protestors

2. Ensure the right to freedom of expression and assembly

3. Launch prompt, independent and impartial investigations into use of excessive force including beatings by law enforcement officials and bring to justice all those public officials  found to have been responsible
