They have right to express their views.

Of course they should! And if Pres. Obama was still in office he would put pressure Erdogan to do so. Instead Trump told Erdogan that he won't defend the Kurds anymore and to feel free to invade them. Trump could care less about the activists who are imprisoned. He hates them since, they tell the truth and report the facts. And of course, the one thing dictators hate.... that's the TRUTH and the FACTS!!

TURKEY IS A COUNTRY WHERE DEMOCRATIC POLITICS IS AN ILLUSION AND NEEDED TO CHANGE A LOT OF THEIR LAWS TO PUT A LIST OF PEOPLE IN PRISON WITHOUT CHARGE THESE PEOPLE START WITH PROFESSORS. JOURNALISTS,. CIVEL SERVANTS, AND THEN TO ANYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH THE GOVERNMENT, THIS ALL STARTED WHEN THERE WAS AN UPRISING WHICH FAILED I REMEMBER THAT NIGHT I FELT THERE WAS SOMETHING VERY STAGED THAT LEFT THE GOVERNMENT IN POWER STILL TODAY WITH THE FULL SUPPORT OF THE ARMY BUT LIKE RUSSIA AND CHINA THERE WILL BE NO CHANGE OF GOVERNMENT AND THEY ARE VERY FRIENDLY WITH RUSSIA AND ARE BUYING THERE WEAPONS AND THEY ARE MEMBERS OF NATO ,WHO CAN NOT HAVE RUSSIAN WEPONS BEING USED IN NATO , THE HUMAN RIGHTS IN TURKEY IS BECOMING MORE LIKE THE CHINESE HUMAN RIGHTS.

These people should never have been detained. What Turkey did was very wrong.

Turkey seems well on its way to becoming an Islamic theocracy, led by its President who is systematically destroying those institutions created by Kemal Ataturk which were designed to foster democracy. Such actions should be opposed where possible.

These people should not have been detained in the first place.

the "offenses" listed are not offenses against the government or the people in it, the operative word being, arbitrary

We need to force Turkey back towards the direction of democracies.
