"We have dozens of media representatives in jail. Some of them are in jail in a scoop of political operations. Some others are because of their journalistic exercise. We have a lot of journalists attacked, physically attacked by state security forces when they are covering demonstrations."
"I think as long as the Turkish government does not make better his relation with opposition parties and do not refrain from provocating (sic) the Turkish media landscape, there is no hope in the next years the situation be better."

"Yes, there is fear. Like all people we are afraid, but we won't give up what we are trying to do and when we do this we realise more and more the importance of standing together."
Journalists in Turkey marked World Press Freedom Day on Tuesday - but it wasn't much of a celebration as they face increasing intimidation, prosecution and censorship.
Since the start of the year, the Turkish government has seized the biggest opposition newspaper, and put two journalists on trial for spying, over their reports on alleged government arms-smuggling to Syrian rebels.
The Reporters Without Borders pressure group puts Turkey at 151 among the 180 countries in its World Press Freedom Index for 2016 - below Afghanistan, Pakistan and others.
Erol Onderoglu is the representative for Reporters Without Borders in Turkey.
He's published a report on Bianet, a Turkish website which publishes articles about human rights.
His report states that 28 journalists are currently in prison, and 53 journalists are on trial for allegedly insulting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Onderoglu doesn't see things improving in the coming years unless the government takes a softer line against its critics.
Beyza Koral, a journalist on the Bianet website, says reporters in Turkey are increasingly fearful, but she insists they won't cave in to government pressure.
