Restorative justice=a path back into the fold +JUSTICE. Any path forward requires accountability, set by those victimized, targeted& harmed. Forgiveness doesn't mean "I forget the grave harm you've done", it means "I recognize your humanity, despite grave the harm you have done."

I invite all universities to show solidarity with the struggle of the students & professors of Boğaziçi University (and all other Turkish universities) to keep academic freedom and autonomy from political interference. #DirenBoğazİci #KabulEtmiyoruzVazgecmiyoruz
