8h45. Un petit groupe de personnes se rassemble sur l’Esplanade dominée par l’imposant Palais de Justice d’Istanbul. On se salue, on discute des derniers événements émaillant les audiences presque quotidiennes des signataires de la pétition des Académiques pour la Paix. Ce mardi, une condamnation inédite a été prononcée : en plus des désormais habituels 15 mois de prison, une signataire de la pétition a été condamnée à rendre visite à la famille d’un militaire tué lors d’une attaque du PKK (Adal, 2019).
