Campaigning for Emin (Pic: Dsip)

Emin Sakir, a member of the Revolutionary Socialist Workers Party (Dsip) in Turkey has now been in jail for more than 60 days.

He was originally charged with archiving socialist material on a website. But the prosecutor is now writing a new indictment.

It is unclear what the eventual charge will be, but in the highly repressive Turkish state it is crucial Emin receives solidarity now.

Activists have organised a solidarity campaign and also need to raise money for Emin’s legal defence and his needs in jail.

Donations are urgently needed.
