Fired academics: All these places were used as school in the past

ANKARA- Fired academics reacted to their colleagues, who haven’t reacted to their dismissal by throwing their books into school corridors and said, “All these places were used as school in the past.”

Many academics in Ankara University were dismissed from their job by KHK decrees issued under the State of Emergency. After 72 academics have been recently dismissed from their job with the last KHK decree No 686, there is no academic member to teach at Communication Faculty of Ankara University.

While some NGOs, political parties and youth organizations react to the dismissal, some academics stay silent.

The academics of Communication Faculty threw the books of the faculty dean Prof. Dr. Abdulrezzak Altun and Prof. Dr. Gamze Yücesan Özdemir, Prof. Dr. Çiler Dursun and Prof. Dr.Ruken Öztürk, who don’t stand by them, into school corridors and left a placard reading, “All these places were used as school in the past.”
