2010’dan bu yana yazıyorum BirGün’de ve bu köşeyi kamu alanı olarak gördüğümden kişisel bir şey yazmamaya özen gösterdim bugüne dek. Bugün bunun dışına çıkacağım; içim dolup taşıyor ve seninle konuşmak istiyorum.

İçimin neden dolup taştığı malum! 30 yıldan fazla bu ülkenin üniversitelerinde ders vermiş, yüzlerce insana ilham olmuş, ürettikleri kadar saygın tutumuyla da ülke için ancak övünç konusu olabilecek bir kişiyken, 2 Mayıs’tan bu yana bir cezaevinin parmaklıkları arkasındasın.

It is part of the on-going crackdown on free expression and speech in the country.

"Memleketi hapishaneye çeviren hukuk sistemini bu hale getiren, Füsun Üstel’i hapishaneye gönderen düzenin hukukuna karşı bir cevap vermek istemez misiniz? Suskunluğunuz nedendir? Başka akademisyenler hapse giderken de bakacak mısınız sadece?"

Kişisel bir yazı ve acıdır yazdıklarım. Kişiselliği ayrı bir utançtır benim için...

Her şey gözümüzün önünde oluyor. Yıllardır mahkûmiyet cezalarıyla bilim insanları biçiliyor, öğütülüyor.

8h45. Un petit groupe de personnes se rassemble sur l’Esplanade dominée par l’imposant Palais de Justice d’Istanbul. On se salue, on discute des derniers événements émaillant les audiences presque quotidiennes des signataires de la pétition des Académiques pour la Paix. Ce mardi, une condamnation inédite a été prononcée : en plus des désormais habituels 15 mois de prison, une signataire de la pétition a été condamnée à rendre visite à la famille d’un militaire tué lors d’une attaque du PKK (Adal, 2019).
