En hälsning med tack från Aslı Erdoğan
I would like to express my deepest gratitude and sincere thanks to all Swedish writers, publishers and journalists, and intellectuals for the great support and solidarity I warmly felt while I was in prison. Without the international attention and support, I believe, they would be quite willing to keep me unjustfully in that stone coffin until I was more or less dead, spiritually and perhaps actually. So I do not know the right words to thank people for my life, but I still will try. I THANK YOU ALL on behalf of all the writers who have been oppressed, brutally silenced, degraded, jailed. I THANK You all on behalf of the eternal victim, that I too temporariy represent.
Hoping to meet in person.
All the best
