"Cihan Erdal is a queer Turkish Canadian PhD from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. Cihan has been arbitrarily and unlawfully imprisoned in Turkey since September 25, 2020 on baseless allegations. The only evidence presented so far are two anti-war Facebook reposts from seven years ago. Cihan is in pre-trial detention and has not appeared before the judges yet! It is not a crime to be anti-militarist, or to oppose war anywhere in the world. Cihan is a prisoner of conscience and a political hostage in Turkey. Help us #freecihanerdal"
