Le printemps reviendra
Hé oui, je sais bien qu'il fait froid,
Que le ciel est tout de travers ;
Je sais que ni la primevère
Ni l'agneau ne sont encore là.
La terre tourne ; il reviendra,
Le printemps, sur son cheval vert.
Que ferait le bois sans pivert,
Le petit jardin sans lilas ?
Oui, tout passe, même l'hiver,
Je le sais par mon petit doigt
Que je garde toujours en l'air … - Maurice Carême #autumn#fallleaves#europeanparliament#poetry#poeme
Turkish teacher #MesutKaçmaz and his family, who were abducted from their home in #Lahore at midnight on Sept. 27, were #deported#illegally by the Pakistani government to Turkey on Oct. 14 just two days before they were expected to appear before a Pakistani court.
#RebeccaHarms , a member of the #EuropeanParliament , on Oct. 15 criticized the #Pakistan government for deporting #Kaçmaz , despite court decisions and the protection of the #UnitedNations .
In May #SaudiArabia , #Malaysia , #Georgia and #Myanmar handed over academics, businessmen and school principals upon the Turkish government’s request even though some of those victims already had refugee status with the #UN like #Kacmazfamily .
#Journalist#CemKüçük , a staunch supporter of Turkish autocratic President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said following “operations in Pakistan and #Indonesia ”, the Turkish intelligence agency would abduct followers of the #Gülenmovement in the #US and #Europe . “People who are well known by the public will be grabbed by the nape of their neck and taken to Turkey. When they wake up whey will find themselves in the hands of the Turkish police and the court. Those days are not too far away,” wrote Küçük in his column published in the pro-government Turkiye daily.
“We will see the end of those who say, ‘I am safe in the US,’ ‘They cannot do anything to me.’ #Europe , #Asia , #Africa … Wherever you flee, the Turkish state will bring you back. Many of your residences have been located. Your homes and workplaces are known. Even the countries where you demanded #asylum will not protect you but will extradite you. It is soon. Wait…” added Küçük.
Küçük and journalist Fuat Uğur made a call in June 2017 for the #assassination of followers of the faith-based Gülen movement who are abroad.

Meet our Swedish MEP @ciawikstrom . Her recent work in the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee included to reform the #DublinAgreement . Cecilia successfully negotiated for a stronger #EUasylum system which calls for participation and contribution from all Member States: a system based on solidarity and that can stand the test of reality. In addition, Cecilia has championed for her liberal beliefs and keeps defending the most vulnerable groups in society, specially groups that suffer discrimination and statelessness in Europe. #ceciliawikström#memberofeuropeanparliament#europeanparliament#asylumsystem#humanrights#liberal
