first_img Rector Hopkinsville, KY Por Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Nov 5, 2012 Curate Diocese of Nebraska Episcopales miembros del CCA escuchan una presentación el 30 de octubre (hora local) durante el cuarto día de la reunión del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano en Auckland. Ellos incluyen (de derecha a izquierda y en contra de las manecillas del reloj) a Ian Douglas, obispo de la Diócesis de Connecticut, la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori, Josephine Hicks y la Rda. Gay Jennings. También aparecen sentados a la mesa los miembros de la delegación al CCA de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá: el Muy Rdo. Peter Elliot (al frente), Suzanne Lawson (a su izquierda) y Susan Moxley, obispa de la Diócesis de Nueva Escocia y de la Isla del Príncipe Eduardo (menos visible a la derecha). Foto para ENS de Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service – Auckland, Nueva Zelanda] En el cuarto día de su reunión del 27 de octubre al 7 de noviembre, el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano aprobó varias resoluciones sobre el medioambiente y la salud así como sobre asuntos relacionados con los refugiados y migrantes y la violencia de género.El CCA comenzó por considerar un informe de 123 páginas de la Comisión Permanente Interanglicana sobre Unidad, Fe y Orden, que cubre el Pacto Anglicano, la futura evolución de los instrumentos de la Comunión así como los diálogos ecuménicos. Esa discusión continuará, junto con las posibles resoluciones, el 31 de octubre, y el 2 y 3 de noviembre, la discusión sobre el pacto se fijó para el 31 de octubre.Los miembros también oyeron a Sally Keeble, directora de la Alianza Anglicana, quien explicó que la labor de ayuda, desarrollo y promoción social de la agrupación comenzó a solicitud del CCA durante su última reunión en Jamaica en 2009Keeble le dijo al Consejo que la Alianza no pretende ser una agencia programática, sino más bien una que brinde capacidad de construir, intercomunicar y hacer promoción social  través de la Comunión. Y, agregó que “un absoluto principio fundacional” es que las prioridades de la organización en la lucha contra la pobreza “deben venir de esas personas que la tienen más cerca”.Por consiguiente, la Alianza celebró cuatro consultas regionales durante 2011 para empezar a sostener conversaciones respecto a esa orientación. Esas regiones son Asia, África, América Latina y el Caribe, y el Pacífico, dijo ella, añadiendo que ya han comenzado a discutirse la celebración en breve de una reunión semejante en alguna parte de América del Norte.Las prioridades de desarrollo que surgieron de esas conversaciones incluyen temas de potenciación económica, paz y reconciliación, gobierno, cambio climático, seguridad alimentaria y migrantes y refugiados, así como la potenciación de la juventud, las mujeres y las comunidades. Todas esas prioridades han de verse respaldadas por la reflexión teológica, dijo Keeble.Una grabación en audio de la presentación de Keeble puede encontrarse aquí.Los miembros del Consejo, que estaban sentados por región y que dedicaron tiempo a discutir la presentación de Keeble, informaron de una creciente conciencia de la necesidad de sostener más conversaciones regionales sobre estos temas, así como la necesidad de mejorar los canales de comunicación de manera que ese tipo de información pueda compartirse más fácilmente.Por ejemplo, Joanildo Burity, miembro del CCA de la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana del Brasil [Igreja Episcopal Anglicana do Brasil], planteo los problemas de la traducción en muchos niveles, incluida la de cómo ayudar a las personas a sustentar la labor de ayuda, desarrollo y promoción social en el Evangelio. Dijo además que algunos de los términos, tales como “seguridad alimentaria”, no siempre tienen acepciones extendidas o comúnmente aceptadas. Y, en algunos casos, la gente de Iglesia, los académicos y los funcionarios gubernamentales no siempre hablan el mismo idioma, arguyó.El presidente del CCA y obispo de la Diócesis de Malawi del Sur, James Tengatenga dijo que los miembros de su mesa debatieron el hecho de que la alianza podría aportar “una voz más potente” en toda la Comunión para abordar los problemas regionales. “Eso ha tenido muy pero muy buena acogida”, afirmó él.Él reiteró la insistencia de Keeble de que “es realmente muy importante para la alianza no convertirse en una agencia de financiación”.Durante una posterior conferencia de prensa, Keeble dijo que el hecho de que la Alianza Anglicana no es un financiador ha significado “que podemos librarnos de las discusiones respecto a las relaciones entre donante y receptor y podemos hablar de cuáles son las necesidades de la comunidad, y podemos construir a partir de ahí”.Keeble catalogó ese cambio como “energizante”, especialmente “dada la historia de las relaciones entre el mundo en desarrollo y el mundo desarrollado”.Por ejemplo, durante un reciente taller sobre potenciación económica “las personas estuvieron conversando acerca de lo que podían hacer, no acerca de lo que no podían hacer, y estaban hablando de crear planes de micro-financiación en su comunidad y el problema respecto a cualquier inversión de capital venía mucho después” y cuando lo abordaron buscaron primero tal financiación a nivel local.El reconocimiento de que los cambios en la economía mundial significan que hay recursos económicos en el mundo en desarrollo” inaugura una manera de trabajar completamente diferente y da paso a oportunidades mucho más constructivas para abordar el modo en que uno confronta la pobreza y la injusticia”, afirmó.Si bien la Alianza está preocupada tanto con el desarrollo como con la promoción social, lo tercero de lo que Keeble denominó sus “pilares” [de la Alianza] es la labor de socorro a la que llamó “el área más compleja de nuestro trabajo”.“Eso es sólo parte debido a la magnitud de la escala y al hecho de que hay tantos países en la Comunión que enfrentan justamente los mismos desastres horribles, tanto naturales como relacionados con conflictos bélicos”, añadiendo que la oficina de la Alianza recibe solicitudes de ayuda casi semanalmente en relación con desastres que no han aparecido en los titulares de la prensa.“Habría sido muy sencillo haber dicho que simplemente nos ocupamos de los desastres en países pobres, pero lo que se desprende de las consultas,  y con toda razón, es que en verdad uno tiene que responder a necesidades donde quiera que surjan”, afirmó. “Uno no puede decir que una víctima de un huracán en Nueva York es menos que la víctima de un huracán en una isla del Pacífico o en una isla del Caribe. Y lo que hemos tenido que pensar al respecto es la manera en que vamos a responder”.A veces esa respuesta es “apoyo mediante la oración” o ayuda con acceso inmediato a dinero en efectivo, dijo Keeble, y a veces consiste en ayudar a las iglesias en zonas propensas a desastres a incrementar su capacidad de responder de manera más eficaz a los desastres.Comienza la labor de las resolucionesEl Consejo comenzó a considerar las resoluciones propuestas por las redes oficiales de la Comunión que ayudan a coordinar la obra de misión y justicia social de la Comunión.Entre las resoluciones que los miembros aprobaron se encuentran:Resolución 15.1, de la Red Medioambiental de la Comunión Anglicana, que recomienda la Declaración y el Plan de Acción de Lima, le pide a las provincias que “celebren, apoyen y alienten los ministerios existentes y nuevos en alimentos/agricultura, conservación de agua potable y energía renovable”, consideren incluir una estación de la creación en el año litúrgico y estimulen la actividad medioambiental en todos los niveles de la Comunión. El CCA tiene programado continuar discutiendo temas del medio ambiente el 1 y el 2 de noviembre, y puede que se produzca una resolución adicional.Resolución 15.2, de la Red Anglicana de Salud, que “afirma la salud y las actividades sanadoras” de las provincias “con un rasgo fundamental y perdurable de la participación anglicana en la misión de Dios”. La resolución alienta a las provincias a tener representantes de sus ministerios de salud y sanación que han de participar en la conferencia de 2013 en la red.Resolución 15.4, de la Red Anglicana de Refugiados y Migrantes, que le agradece a la Provincia de Hong Kong por apoyar el restablecimiento de la red, elogia la “labor esencial” que se está haciendo a través de la Comunión para apoyar a los pueblos migrantes, les pide a las diócesis y a las provincias que participen de la localización mundial, solicita que los anglicanos reúnan “estudios de casos concretos” en defensa de tales pueblos, compartan información y recursos y apoyen la ratificación internacional de la convención 189 de la Organización Internacional del Trabajo sobre el trabajo decente para los trabajadores domésticos e informe al CCA16.Resolución 15.5, de la Red Interanglicana de la Familia, que le pide a las provincias que promuevan las inscripciones de nacimiento en sus comunidades y apoyen a las familias a vencer obstáculos en la inscripción, en parte aliándose con agencias gubernamentales y no gubernamentales. Más información respecto a los problemas concernientes a la inscripción de nacimiento se puede obtener aquí.Resolución 15.7, de la Red Interanglicana de la Familia, la Red Internacional de Mujeres Anglicanas y la Red Francófona, que se ocupa de la violencia de género. Respalda la carta de la Reunión de los Primados 2011 respecto a la violencia de género (puede encontrarse aquí), “se regocija” en la labor que ya se está haciendo en la Comunión para combatir la violencia de género, recomienda que las escuelas teológicas de la Comunión adiestren a todos los clérigos y a otros ministros en lo tocante a la violencia de género, respalda la campaña de la Cinta Blanca, encomia al arzobispo de Cantórbery y a las iglesias de Burundi, Ruanda y el Congo por reunir a líderes y agencias religiosas para discernir “lo que podría decirse y hacerse juntos en respuesta a la violencia sexual como arma de guerra y de terror” y respalda la participación anglicana en la coalición Vamos a Hablar de iglesias y agencias cristianas  contra la violencia sexual, y alienta a las iglesias a “proporcionar un medio ambiente donde niños y niñas se sientan igualmente apreciados e igualmente capaces de participar del aprendizaje y de actividades que fomenten relaciones positivas y respetuosas independientemente del género, la capacidad y la etnia”. El CCA seguirá discutiendo la violencia de género el 30 de octubre y de nuevo el 31 de octubre.Resolución 15.9, de la Coalición de la Comunión Anglicana por una Iglesia Segura, que respalda la labor realizada hasta ahora en la Comunión para crear espacios seguros en las iglesias, llama a todas las iglesias miembros a adoptar y poner en práctica el “Estatuto para la Seguridad de las Personas en las Iglesias de la Comunión Anglicana” y a informar en la próxima reunión del CCA sobre el progreso de su implementación.Una resolución relacionada [con la anterior] que reconoce la Coalición de la Comunión anglicana por una Iglesia Segura como una red oficial de la Comunión y recomienda su trabajo a las provincias.Antecedentes del CCAEl CCA es uno de los cuatro instrumentos de la Comunión, siendo los otros  el arzobispo de Cantórbery (que sirve como presidente del CCA), la Conferencia de Lambeth de Obispos Anglicanos y la Reunión de los Primados.Instituido en 1969, el CCA incluye a clérigos y laicos, al igual que a obispos, entre sus delegados. La membresía [del CCA] consta de una a tres personas de cada una de las 38 provincias de la Comunión Anglicana, dependiendo del tamaño de la feligresía de cada provincia. En los casos donde hay tres miembros, hay un obispo, un presbítero y un laico. En los casos donde se nombran menos miembros, la preferencia se le da a los laicos. La Constitución del CCA puede encontrarse aquí.El Consejo se reúne cada tres o cuatro años y la reunión de Auckland es la 15ª desde su creación.La Iglesia Episcopal está representada por Josephine Hicks, de Carolina del Norte; la Rda. Gay Jennings, de Ohio y el obispo Ian Douglas de Connecticut.Jefferts Schori asiste a la reunión en su carácter de miembro del Comité Permanente de la Comunión Anglicana, que se reunió aquí antes del comienzo de la reunión del CCA.  Douglas también es miembro del Comité Permanente.Una lista completa de los participantes en la 15ª reunión del CCA se encuentra aquí.Toda la cobertura que ha hecho ENS del CCA15 se encuentra aquí.– La Rda.

I am certainly for the homeless having a safe place to stay and not being out on the streets in the rain, heat, and cold, exposed to the criminal elements, but at the same time, I certainly hope this is not something that Florida Hospital intends to do with our old hospital in the center of Apopka that will be closing, when the new hospital is completed out off the 429. They had indicated that the old hospital would be converted into senior citizen housing, but after reading this article, I really wonder about the future of the old hospital. To me, the red flag in this article is the part that allows the people to permanently live in these places without requiring that they overcome addictions?????? Seriously????? In other words, they are going to be housing drug addicts, and alcoholics, and endangering the other residents, and the surrounding neighborhoods????? For real???? I hope this is NOT the plan for our old hospital, but now I am skeptical. We don’t want this town to be a “anything goes kind of place”…..at least, speaking for myself, I don’t! Also, not to mention the fact that Orange Co. taxpayers are helping pay the bill for millions for this. Just wait for the Obamacare to be dropped, the social security cut out, the Medicare axed and the Medicaid tossed out……start gathering your tent and camping equipment now and just hope you land a place on the waiting list of the “Florida Hospital Homeless Resort” placement program, it could be that bad!……or in other words, another form of sanctuary city.

Please help! 4 COMMENTS Suffering significant health problems, the woman was in and out of hospitals constantly. She did not take prescribed medications because they made her groggy — an unsafe condition for a woman living on the streets.“And, of course, within a week or two her medical condition would deteriorate again,” says Shannon Nazworth, executive director of Ability Housing, a nonprofit organization serving northeast and central Florida. “She was just cycling in and out of the hospital, not because anybody was not giving her good care or did not care about her, but because the system was broken.”In the two years before the woman was placed in an apartment, three hospitals spent more than $750,000 on her care.“In the year after she moved in, she went to the hospital once for a couple of days,” Nazworth says. “The other factors that were affecting her health were addressed by just getting her housing. She needed a place to sleep at night, a place to store her medicine and the security of a door to lock.”Framing the IssuePatients like this woman exist throughout health care, but, traditionally, most health systems have not seen a way to address homelessness and other social factors that exacerbate individuals’ health problems. That is changing as health systems pivot to population health management and new payment systems that reward them for proactively improving patients’ health status.“Whatever has been done in the past has not been working, and we have to really think very differently,” says David Perlstein, M.D., president and CEO of SBH Health System in the New York City borough of the Bronx.In his case, that means proactively reducing inpatient capacity, selling part of the SBH campus to a developer to build low-income housing and opening an urgent care center and other outpatient facilities in the new development. In other places, provider organizations are donating cash. For example, five hospitals and a nonprofit health plan in Portland, Ore., are donating $21.5 million to help build nearly 400 housing units for homeless and low-income people. Still other health care organizations are building apartments that they own and operate themselves, and some are paying the rent for homeless people to have a place to live.Supporting ArticlesAmerican Hospital Association: Housing Is Health CareWhen Housing Comes First, Hospitals BenefitWhat they all have in common: the goal of improving housing stability and thereby improving the well-being of their patients and their community.“This is an opportunity that health systems are seeing,” says Donald Moulds, executive vice president for the Commonwealth Fund.The best role for provider organizations is not yet clear; Moulds and other policy analysts are working to figure that out. But a growing body of research shows that addressing housing instability is a cost-effective approach to reducing avoidable health care utilization.“A modest housing investment, coupled with supportive services, can actually keep people from needing much more expensive care in the long term, sometimes even in the shorter term, and can pretty dramatically improve outcomes,” Moulds said. “If you target it right, it can be a cost-effective choice for provider organizations.”Direct supportIn 2014, Florida Hospital in Orlando committed $6 million over three years to address homelessness in central Florida. The donation coincided with big commitments — $4 million from the city of Orlando and $13.5 million from Orange County — during the same three-year period.“Our mayor set a goal to house about 300 of downtown Orlando’s chronically homeless within three years and, without a doubt, we wanted to be in on this early,” says Yamile Luna, assistant vice president of Florida Hospital Community Impact and Volunteer Services.Shannon Nazworth, executive director of Ability Housing in Florida, worked with hospitals, other nonprofits and the Sheriff’s Office to target potential residents for the units.Watch: Housing Is Health CareThe city engaged the Corporation for Supportive Housing, a national nonprofit group, to strategically identify vulnerable individuals and families who need supportive housing and are high users of emergency departments and other high-cost public services.“We knew who our frequent-flyer homeless individuals were,” Luna said. “They would come in through the emergency department, and we knew there had to be a better way to care for them. We started determining case by case, person by person, what is it that they truly need.”The work is benefiting not just high-need patients but the health system as well. By the time $1.6 million of Florida Hospital’s donation had been spent, the hospital had avoided an estimated $2.5 million in costs for six high-utilizers who had been placed in homes.“This is not why we did it, but it was a very big moment of ‘wow’ when that information was shared,” Luna says.Meanwhile, Florida Hospital’s commitment to addressing homelessness caught the attention of a local charity that had operated a transitional housing community for more than 15 years. Over that time, the “housing first” model — placing homeless people in permanent housing without requiring that they overcome addictions, get jobs or hit other milestones — had gained traction in the social service world, and the charity wanted to convert its apartments to permanent housing. So, earlier this year, it donated the Wayne Densch Center for the homeless to Florida Hospital.The health system, in turn, is leasing the property to Ability Housing for $1 per year. With funding from Orange County, Ability is redeveloping the center to provide permanent housing for individuals and families.“We are happy to be behind the scenes,” Luna says. “Housing is not our expertise, so in order for us to be successful, we knew we wanted to partner with Ability and also the Orange County government.”The foremost goal for the renovated Wayne Densch Center is to provide permanent supportive housing for families, but some units may be designated as transitional care units for homeless patients discharged from Florida Hospital.To read the entire article, go here.

The undulating landscape, mountainous backdrops, and horses in the paddock next door create an idyllic rural feel and a sense of spaciousness. The clients bought the site and found their design inspiration very close to home – the neighbours’ house. That is my parents’ place. We presented the clients with a few options, and they quickly settled on their preferred plan. Save this picture!© Paul McCredieThe plan is designed to maximise the north-facing site and views. The house is laid out in two wings, living and sleeping. As with most of the houses we do it has been designed to integrate with the sloping site, creating stepped levels. The form of the house seemed to be a natural and appropriate response to the topography of the site. Save this picture!© Paul McCredieThe bedroom wing has a steep roofline that follows the slope of the hill behind it. In the two teenagers’ bedrooms the tall roof space allows for mezzanine floors, accessed by wall ladders and partly closed off with translucent plastic sheets. The bedroom wing and the east-facing sides of the other wings are clad in a dark corrugated metal. The garage and living wing on the west side are clad in vertical and textured cedar weatherboards with concrete blockwork. Save this picture!© Paul McCredieThe timber is carried on throughout the interior in the entry wall and the flooring, with a cedar screen between the entry and the kitchen. Similarly the blockwork is continued on to the interior. The mix of simple and robust materials creates a different profile for each wing, but also forms a coherent link between exterior and interior surfaces.

Starter Home* is an opportunistic urban housing program created to develop affordable, entry-level homes for the speculative market that prioritizes: contemporary design that is site based and not prototypical; programmatic diversity to address a range of buyers, from first-timers to downsizers; densification through infill of overlooked odd or irregular vacant land; right-sizing as a means of addressing both environmental concerns and to insure affordability; in increasingly gentrifying historic core neighborhoods, a product that enables household economic diversity in rapidly gentrifying historic urban cores; and to do this without subsidization.Save this picture!© William CrockerThe Starter Home* program is fundamentally about using inventive land strategies coupled with design to develop homeownership opportunities in urban neighborhoods that, due to upward economic pressures, are no longer assessable to large parts of the population. The starter home moniker is important in that it clearly associates the program with a quintessential, albeit fading, component of the American housing market.Save this picture!ElevationSave this picture!SectionConventionally understood as monotonous, mass produced, greenfield development, this program takes a decidedly opposite approach of architectural particularity and urban integration to achieve similar aims. And, unlike its namesake, it relies wholly on design to set the development agenda, create access to land and generate the product. Without architecture, in this context, there would be no development.Save this picture!© William CrockerThe program is financed and operated by a working collaboration between developer, builder and architect. It is conceived as being applicable to many, if not all, cities. The first test sites are in New Orleans. Through a thorough analysis of land availability and market pressures, it was determined that there were opportunities with land that was too small or undesirable — odd lots — to attract first-wave developers. The design of the home works within and expressive of the restrictive conditions of the site, resulting in fitting yet peculiar new housing types for the City.Save this picture!© William CrockerThe first completed home under this program, No. 1, is located at 3106 St. Thomas St. in the Irish Channel neighborhood of New Orleans. The site was situated between industrial warehouses and historic homes dating back to the beginnings of the neighborhood — a common condition in the fringes adjacent the River. The site is a remnant parcel long thought to be the rear yard of an adjacent home and measured only 16 ½ by 55 feet.Save this picture!© William CrockerWith as-of-right setbacks, the footprint was limited to 10 ½ by 45 feet. The site was further complicated by being in a full control historic district with strict guidelines for scale and massing. The program for this initial house, one bedroom, one and a half baths with an office space, was tailored towards an individual or couple that, as a category, have found it increasingly difficult to locate available housing in this neighborhood.Save this picture!© William CrockerThe formal solution for the 975 square foot home was to use a staggered sectional composition that allowed the rooms to layer farther from the street giving an impression of a much smaller home. As a way to economize space, the side yard setback was used for entry and rear yard circulation, by way of an elevated deck, which was sandwiched between the home and adjacent warehouse CMU wall. The result is a narrow and tall structure that, through manipulation of the roof plane, is disguised from the street, read essentially as a low, one-story roof line, while the remainder of the home climbed up to the allowable building height.Save this picture!© William CrockerFuture Starter Homes* will continue to explore land-use, programmatic and spatial variations that position them as alternatives to the regimens of the normative speculative housing marketplace.Project gallerySee allShow lessRenzo Piano Designs Glass Soho Tower for New YorkUnbuilt ProjectThe Best Architecture Drawings of 2015Misc Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/780122/starter-home-star-no-1-ojt Clipboard 2015 “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/780122/starter-home-star-no-1-ojt Clipboardlast_img read more

first_img The Turkish authorities pushed measures through parliament on 15 May tightening official control over the national radio and TV monitoring council RTÜK, allowing army representatives to be part of it, increasing fines for media offences, encroaching freedom of expression on the Internet and risking a further narrowing of media ownership. May 17, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Revised media law – Reporters Without Borders deplores repressive turn by Turkish regime News April 28, 2021 Find out more TurkeyEurope – Central Asia to go further TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law Help by sharing this information Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor RSF_en Organisation Follow the news on Turkey Receive email alerts News News April 2, 2021 Find out more The Turkish authorities pushed measures through parliament on 15 May making the media law even more repressive than before.Reporters Without Borders deplores the amendments that tighten official control over the national radio and TV monitoring council RTÜK, allow army representatives to be part of it, increase fines for media offences, encroach freedom of expression on the Internet and risk a further narrowing of media ownership.”These measures fly in the face of the commitments to freedom of expression Turkey has made to the European Union,” said RSF secretary-general Robert Ménard. “We deplore this seriously repressive turn by the Turkish regime in this domain.” The amendments are the first reform of RTÜK since it was set up in April 1994:- RTÜK will now include representatives of the National Security Council (MGK, which is chaired by the head of state and made up of the country’s military chiefs), the state-controlled High Council of Education (YÖK), the prime minister and government members. The presence of the two main media organisations does not counterbalance the clear tightening of state control of RTÜK.- The new measures expand further the scope of RTÜK as a full-scale media police by adding to the weapons it can use against radio and TV stations, such as warnings, fines, censorship of programmes and suspension of broadcasting. The fines are on average 1,000 times higher than before. Operators of media that continue to broadcast in defiance of RTÜK will face between six months and two years in prison, as well as very heavy fines. The assignment of broadcasting frequencies is now the job of the Telecommunications Council.- The area of freedom that the Internet represents for journalists is under threat from RTÜK, which is now authorised to monitor it, especially news portals. Defamation on the Internet and the dissemination of “false news” there will be subject to heavy fines of up to 100 million Turkish pounds (about _70,000). RSF notes that last December, Istanbul’s no.2 magistrates’ court prosecuted the website ideapolitika.com (site of the magazine Idea Politika) and ordered it to close for having “insulted the armed forces.” In February this year, Coskun Ak, the moderator of an Internet forum, was fined € 5,000 for “mocking and insulting state institutions” because he did not remove a message posted on the forum about human rights violations in southeastern Turkey.Many observers say clauses of the amended law concerning media ownership may narrow control down further.RSF calls on the European Union to inform the Turkish authorities that this repressive turn away from freedom of expression seriously jeopardises Turkey’s efforts to get closer to the EU.
