On 3 June Sunday, a group of people from the fields of academy, arts, and publishing gathered in front of Silivri Prison in solidarity with Osman Kavala, and they unfurled a banner stating "Free Osman Kavala" (Osman Kavala'ya Özgürlük). Below is the statement by the group.
We miss Osman Kavala a lot!
We find it inexplicable and unacceptable that our beloved friend Osman Kavala, who deserves appreciation and gratitude of Turkey with his unique contributions to arts, culture, and science, has been deprived of his freedom for months without justification and indictment. We demand his release and return among us as soon as possible.
