The Solidarity with the People of Turkey (SPOT) will be sending a further delegation to Turkey on 11 – 14 January 2017. The aim of this delegation is to:
• meet with prominent progressive individuals and organisations in Turkey,
• observe the effects of the ongoing state of emergency,
• create wider public awareness in the UK, and
• report back to the UK using real lived experiences and case studies collected as evidence.
The delegation will visit as many opposition groups and organisations as possible in Turkey, including opposition political parties such as the HDP, LGBT groups, trade unions, journalists and writers. There are currently 10 representatives who will be joining the delegation to Turkey.
