Together… Against Hate! "Not To Say It’s Over!" / "Lynch Map of Turkey: A map of Turkey showing locations of lynch acts and attempts"


I have updated and published my artwork “Lynch Map of Turkey: A map of Turkey showing locations of lynch acts and attempts” the fourth time under the title “Not to say it’s over(Bitti dememek için!) two days ago in Turkish.

I first produced my artwork on 17th January 2010 to be published at Turkish daily newspaper Birgün. The first title of my artwork was “Just a little bit remains!” (Az kaldı!) And the newspaper chose “The Republic of Lynch” as the headline for that page:


I updated the map on 26th September 2010 with 29 more lynch attempts under a new title “Even less remains!” (Daha da az kaldı!) and published it in my blog:


The third update titled “Almost over!” (Bitmek üzere!) included 50 new lynch attempts and acts, including those that were not successful merely because there was nobody at the target venue.


I’ve published the fourth update titled “Not to say it’s over!” (Bitti dememek için!) adding 32 new attempts and acts of lynch since August 2012:

In the last six months, as different from the past, there were people who have given me a helping hand to ease my burden: Some informed me about past lynch attempts that took place in their towns, which were not included in my maps, while some of my followers told me about the lynch attempts which they’ve found out as a result of personal searches and which were not included in the previous three maps. I have now added 17 more lynch attempts that took place between 2006 and 2012:

Kırıkkale – Vize / July 20 2006
Batman / June 25 2007
Gümüşhane – Torul / June 27 2007
Siirt / June 23 2008

Hakkari – Yüksekova / March 2 2011
Malatya – Doğanşehir / April 6 2011
Batman / August 15 2011
Konya / December 19 2011
İstanbul – Zeytinburnu / March 18 2012
İstanbul – Kağıthane / June 19 2012
İstanbul – Esenler / July 11 2012

My artwork lists predominantly racist, nationalist, ethnic and homophobic hate attacks.
Although my artwork is based on a careful searching and archiving work over a long term, there may still be some lynch attempts or acts that have not been included, and I will of course regretfully add them to the list if I am informed about them.
I’m afraid to say “It’s over!” one day.
