“I salute your courage”

Tariq Ali, sends solidarity message to the Bogazici resistance in a special interview with Evrensel.

TARIQ ALI: I salute your courage. How and when the struggle for academic and other freedoms for minorities of every sort will end I cannot predict. But this moment in the history of modern Turkey will not be forgotten thanks to all of you. In the Western world they have found other ways to crush academic freedoms that were once taken for granted. And not just for students but also for the staff. Here money becomes the weapon. Many universities in Britain, for instance, are intellectual deserts. Your actions are an inspiration to your peers in Pakistan and India and Arab world too. More power to you, my friends.
