This month, CPJ's #FreeThePress campaign focuses on İnan Kızılkaya, the former news editor of the shuttered pro-Kurdish daily Özgür Gündem, who was arrested on August 16, 2016. He faces 105 criminal cases, 103 of which had moved to trial by the end of 2016, on charges of terrorism, "disrupting the unity of the state," insulting the Turkish nation, and insulting the president, according to his lawyer and court documents. Learn more about Kızılkaya's case and join CPJ in calling for his immediate release.
