Turkey Wants Death Penalty for 18 Year Old Female Poet!!
20 Dec 2004
I was shocked but not surprised to hear this sickening news from the great Muslim country of Turkey. For much too long Turkey has been an ass kisser to the United States and Great Britian and their Puppet Master, Israel. The Turkish government has banned the public wearing of the hijabs on women.

Now it seems Turkey can't prove her loyality to the goons in Washington, London and Israel enough!!!
Urgent Action Needed!!!

Turkey Wants Death Penalty for 18 Year Old Female Poet!!

Please help me in an emergency action to stop the execution of 18
year old Gulan Intisar Saatcioglu. We must take immediate action,
NOW, before its too late!!!

Please read the following story and find it in your heart to act in Gulan and the other women's behalf, before its too late!

France will probubly be following suit if Turkey goes ahead with these executions.


18 year old Gulan Intisar Saatcioglu
facing death penalty for reading her poem -'Song of Freedom'
The report of the IHRC legal observer into the trial of Huda Kaya
and 74 other peaceful demonstrators charged with trying to overthrow
the Turkish constitution by force is now available below.

One of those charged is Gulan Intisaar Saatcioglu an 18 year old
high school student. The evidence against her is the writing and
recitation of the poem 'Song of Freedom' outside the Governor's
building during the demonstration. Together with Kaya and 49 of the
others, if found guilty she faces the death penalty. The youngest of
this group is 15 years old.

We are from mountain and plateau

Working the machines, studying at school

Our fight will go on

Until the tyrants drown

The ignited flame will not die

Nor our song of freedom end,

Our fists held high in defiance

Will never come down

Before the tyrants are overthrown.

Come join us sisters young and old

Our cries increase aloud

To ensure Allah's Word prevails

And infidelity fails.

Never will the burning flame die out,

Or our song of freedom end.

Our defiant fists will not

Fall before the tyrants are overthrown.

Gulan Intisaar Saatcioglu

Report of IHRC legal observer to Huda Kaya trial


If you wish to help out the girls and women of Turkey in their gallant fight against an repressive regime that forbids the wearing of the hijab, than please go to the Innovative Minds website:

How £5 can make a difference
Funds raised specifically through the sale of 'Gems from the Holy
Qur'an' (suggested donation £5/$8) enabled IHRC to send a legal
observer to the case of Huda Kaya and the Malatya 75. Innovative
Minds would like to thank all those who bought the software and to
those who actively promote it with a link banner on their site. But
Brothers and Sisters this is just the start of the struggle, help
IHRC to continue the campaign for our Brothers and Sisters in
Turkey - please donate generously.
