Index on Censorship took part in a rally on 12 July at the Turkish Embassy in London to call for the release of Idil Eser, the director of Amnesty International Turkey.

Eser was detained along with seven human rights defenders and two non-Turkish trainers on 5 July while conducting a digital security and information management workshop in Büyükada, Istanbul. The protest marked the one week anniversary of their arrest.

In this special podcast, we asked representatives from Amnesty International UK, Reporters Without Borders, English Pen and Index on Censorship about the state of media freedom in Turkey and their messages for the detained human rights defenders.
