Hi everyone 🤙
Today in this issue I want to talk about your internet and media situation in Turkey. I know it is a boring topic but the question is “What’s going on in Turkey” must be important to the enthusiast.
At the Germany-based independent political foundation Turkish Website, I wrote two articles about this point. I share with you all.

The discussions about the restriction of the Internet and social media continue in Turkey. Unfortunately, the government party efforts are being made to end media freedom altogether.
A year ago, I wrote an article about the new future of the internet in Turkey. I focused on Turkey’s new internet act and analyzed its origins and impacts. I tried to answer the question that “What’s Behind Turkey’s New Internet Law?
I finished the article with these words:
What should have been done was to review the current legislative framework in favor of citizens. But what happened, in reality, will bring forth more restrictions on citizens’ right to privacy, right to communication, and right to freedom of speech.
So it happened and the new act came into effect. You can read my first article below 👇
What's Behind Turkey's New Internet Law?
However, our government party hitherto failed to achieve complete control over alternative media and their accounts on social platforms, despite extensive judicial and legislative strain.
A year later, the new internet act is being prepared again. These days, AKP uses “terror of lies” as an excuse, accusing the opposition parties of spreading disinformation. 
According to the BBC Turkish article dated September 1, the proposed new bill envisions sanctions only being applied to disinformation-spreading posts that are “organized, structured and serving a specific purpose.
so what’s behind it? what is political motivation? All of them are in the second article. Here you go 👇
