Subject: Orhan Pamuk
I am dismayed by the fact that Turkish author Orhan Pamuk is going to be tried for a statement made in an interview for an overseas publication. This is in direct contravention of the United Nations Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and the European Convention on Human Rights, to which the Turkish government is a signatory. The decision to bring Orhan Pamuk to trial is a travesty. Pamuk is a brilliant writer and a gift to the world, and should not be forced to stand trial for his words. Please reconsider the actions of the Turkish government.
