Since we gathered here in the Romanian Parliament at BISMUN 2014, we consider it is part of our mission to be aware of what happens around us. This is also one of our main objectives, besides debating and providing the best solutions for our Councils and Committees topics.

On behalf of the worldwide countries we are representing here, it is of the utmost importance to comprehend the relevance of free speeches while respecting and protecting human rights and dignities of our citizens and recognize the democratic values as core values of our society.

Lately some unfortunate events have taken place in Turkey. For instance, students are being arrested and put into jail for demanding free education in a peaceful manner, being treated as  terrorists. Also, unnecessary turnouts, such as people beaten on the streets by the police have been reported . Furthermore, there are nearly 100 journalists behind bars, the online social platform Twitter is being blocked and now YouTube (considered a national security issue) is another casualty of the authoritarian turkish government.

As delegates of different countries around the world gathered at BISMUN 2014, we strongly believe it is the government’s duty to protect its citizens and take into account their opinions, in this case . Moreover, we would like to transmit to the turkish protesters, to those who want to keep Turkey a democratic, secular, unitary and safe constitutional republic, those who are standing up for the freedom of speech and the protection of  the human rights : keep  fighting for your rights!
