Every day, Nuriye Gülmen is arrested by the police for protesting in public against her dismissal.
Turkish professors who signed a call for peace are being charged with disseminating terrorist propaganda. Many are seeking refuge in Germany — but here too they face an uncertain future.
Turkish teacher Nuriye Gulmen has been freed pending appeal after being convicted of belonging to a banned far-left group. She has gone without food for months to protest her dismissal after last year's failed coup.
The educator has been released from jail, but will have to wear a tracking device until his trial ends. His hunger strike attempts to draw attention to Erdogan's crackdown on public servants.
