Hi all,

An email from a colleague of mine seeking support for a PhD student who's been unjustly arrested.
From: snacleth-l <snacleth-l-bounces at uleth.ca> on behalf of Ozcan, Gulden <gulden.ozcan at uleth.ca>

Subject: [snacleth-l] Call to Free Carleton PhD Candidate Cihan Erdal

Dear friends,

I am writing to inform you about my friend, Carleton Sociology PhD Candidate, Cihal Erdal’s detention in Turkey.
Cihan was in Turkey to visit family and conduct his fieldwork as part of his PhD research. On Friday, he was detained along with 81 other pro-Kurdish activists, academics and politicians.

We just started a letter campaign open to Canadian scholars' signature. Cihan is a permanent resident, not a citizen of Canada. Our hope is to pressure Canadian authorities to take action on Cihan's case.

Feel free to circulate this among your networks.


In solidarity,


Dr. Gülden Özcan
