The signatories condemned the Turkish government's "full-blown attack against the Kurdish population" and curfews that led to killings of innocent civilians and demanded the following:
  • an immediate ceasefire between the Turkish government and the Kurds in the Turkish Parts;
  • a retreat of the Turkish army from areas populated by civilians;
  • an international monitoring and peace-keeping mission in Turkey's South-East region;
  • an international independent investigation into human rights violations in Turkey's South-East region.

The organisations that signed the petition are: IYDU- International Young Democrat Union, IUSY- International Union of Socialist Youth, DEMYC- Democrat Youth Community of Europe, YES- Young European Socialists, Federation of Young European Greens and Federation of Young European Greens, supported by the EYF - European Youth Forum.

The right to publish in the magazine belongs to everyone!


M(A)Y publishes a variety of media contents – texts, caricatures, photos, video-clips – created by young people, youth workers, experts, and all others that wish and have something to say about youth policy.

Geographically, M(A)Y e-Magazine is primarily targeting European countries, but it also publishes important news and initiatives in the field of youth policy worldwide.

The e-Magazine gives special attention to youth media activism, wishing to present the examples of best practices of using different media for youth activism.

Besides authored articles, M(A)Y also gathers together relevant articles from other web-sites. M(A)Ye-Magazine is thus a virtual space where visitors are able to get information about the international situation and problems of youth policy, and the place where young authors are able to write articles and other content intended for improving the youth policy internationally. In this respect, it has vital importance for the intraregional and transregional association, understanding, coming together, promoting dialogue and cooperation.
This portal has been created as part of the international MEDIActive Youth project implemented within the Erasmus + Programme. The aims of the project are:
Increasing the capacity of youth organisations/workers in the field of media literacy and media activism as well as fostering their active participation in society
Fostering intraregional and transregional cooperation between 11 youth NGOs from 10 countries from Western Balkans, Western Europe and North Europe regions
Strengthening media promotion of youth policy and democratic values in partner countries on transregional and European level.
