Youth IGF Turkey 2016 has been held in Istanbul

Youth IGF Turkey meeting has been held in Istanbul for a second time this year, with the coordination of Turkey-Europe Foundation as part of Network of European Digital Youth partnership. Pirate Party MEP Julia Reda has sent a message to the forum meeting prior to the event, and her statement was also forwarded to participants:

“Dear participants of the Turkish Youth IGF! In times like these, safeguarding our ability to communicate openly over the Internet is more important than ever. People around the world are sharing the same struggles and can gain so much from being connected. As the only representative of the Pirate Party in the European Parliament, I am fighting for digital rights and universal access to knowledge and culture. Nothing is more encouraging than seeing that young people around the world are thinking about what the web of the future should look like, and who use technology in creative ways to improve their lives. I hope that your discussions will be fruitful and empowering. I send all my best wishes from Brussels to Istanbul!”

–Julia Reda, Pirate Party MEP
