During the Gezi Protests last June, Turkish police set upon Hakan Yaman as he was returning home from work. They brutally beat him and dragged him into a street fire. One officer gouged out his eye.
Hakan is one of thousands of victims of police violence during the Gezi protests. He was featured in Amnesty’s report on the Gezi protests and in videos that Amnesty produced (available in English and in Turkish).
Today, October 10, is Hakan’s birthday. Let’s give him the birthday gift he most deserves: Justice.
