    There are not 76 journalists in jail, but 7 journalists are behind jail
    ( Reporters without borders )
    PRESS FREEDOM BAROMETER 2011 - Reporters Without Borders

    It has now decreased to 6 as Ahmet Sik was released.
    4 of the 6 journalists still in custody are accused of membership in PKK and of fomentation of hate through Press.

    UK jailed "News-of-the-World" journalists because they engaged in criminal activity and UK will be listed in "Press-Freedom"-Index of 2012.
    But that doesn't say anything about press-freedom in UK unless you make the distinction between journalists and criminal Journalists.
    Same thing in Turkey.
    Yes, journalists also can engage in crime.

    In an annual report released on Thursday, the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), the top judicial body to rule on human rights violations in Europe, found that Turkey is by far the worst violator of human rights among the 47 signatory states of the European Convention on Human Rights.

    She's an Anarchist communist who damaged public-property (Police car).
    This is her on pictures. Police tried to put her down, she resisted and 1 Policeman broke her rip.
    Go and Occupy Wall-Street, but leave Public-Property alone.

    In 2003 she already got beaten by Police when she protested Colin Powel's visit in Ankara,
    She's member of Maoist Communist Party.

    8 years later and she still is a "student".
    She should grow up, finish her education and find a purpose in life.
