Homophobic and transphobic violence doesn’t stop: Assault in Eskişehir, murders in Bursa and Edirne!

A transsexual woman was attacked and beaten in Eskişehir. A transsexual woman was found her head cut in Bursa. A man has been killed by his friend on the claim that he asked for sexual intercourse.
There is still no word from the authorities about the cases of Ahmet Yıldız who were shot to death on 15 July 2008 in Istanbul and Dilek İnce who were shot to death on 12 November 2008 in Ankara. While we were in grief after them, another transsexual woman Ebru Soykan was stabbed to death on 10 March 2009 in Istanbul.
We continue to ask the same question again, “When are you going to stop watching?” The murderers, who are encouraged by the silence of the state, continue on their fearless attacks. The recent news from Bursa horrified the LGBTT community in Turkey. We are in great sorrow after these brutal attacks.
