Subject: [Wikimedia-l] Recognizing the one-year anniversary of the Wikipedia block in Turkey
To: Wikimedia Mailing List <wikimedia-l@lists.wikimedia.org>, Staff (All) <wmfall@lists.wikimedia.org>


Today the Wikimedia Foundation, in cooperation with a number of volunteers
who attended the Wikimedia Conference, have posted on Twitter and Facebook
a video message speaking to the one-year anniversary of the block of
Wikipedia in Turkey.

The video re-enforces our message that this block is a lost opportunity
both for the people of Turkey and the rest of the world. Any assistance
that you all can offer in terms of helping circulate the video amongst your
networks would be greatly appreciated!

We have also made the video available on Wikimedia Commons if you would
like to help us with translating:

This is a part of our ongoing efforts around the block in Turkey, and done
with input from members of the local community in Turkey. We GREATLY
appreciate the help of everyone involved in the development and all of you
who are sharing these messages. If you have any questions, please let us
