Haytoug Talks

The AYF will be hosting its first annual Haytoug Talk, where the struggle against human rights abuses in Turkey will be the main topic of discussion. The talk will feature Sayat Tekir, the founding member of the Nor Zartonk (“New Awakening”) movement based in Istanbul.

Sayat Tekir and the Nor Zartonk movement were instrumental in the return of Kamp Armen to the Armenian community of Istanbul.

Kamp Armen was an Armenian orphanage slated for demolition and gentrification, until Nor Zartonk and solidarity activists decided to stage an indefinite sit in that lasted 175 days. In the course of their sit in they experienced overwhelming support and solidarity from local Turkish and Kurdish residents, and were also attacked on two separate occasions by fascists and ultranationalists.

Sayat will speak about these experiences, as well as the recent elections in Turkey and other relevant topics.
