On Thursday, the European Parliament will vote a resolution on the recent crackdowns on media freedom in Turkey. In addition to the plenary extracts, the S&D Group will release an exclusive interview with Dögan Özgüden, a Turkish journalist and publisher, exiled in Belgium. He is also the laureate – with his colleague and partner Inci Tugsavul- of the 2006 Ayse Zarakolu Freedom of Thought Prize, awarded by the Human Rights Association of Turkey.
