first_imgA Greek graphic designer and activist has been targeted by the Erdogan regime, for creating an image criticising the Turkish President. The designer, operating under the moniker @JoDiGraphics, has been creating satirical graphs for the past years, mostly focusing on the Greek crisis. On October 2015, he made an illustration of a blood-soaked Recep Tayyip Erdogan, bearing the phrase “Stop Killer Erdogan,” a reference to the slogan that Turkish protesters were shouteting on the aftermath of the attack in Ankara. Three years later, he was notified by the legal department of Twitter that a Turkish Court ruled against a series of accounts that post anti-Erdogan material, demanding that the posts be taken down. The decision of the Turkish court refers to 80 posts related to Erdogan on social media (Twitter, Facebook) but also the names and the URLs of several blogs. the court demands the removal of pictures and caricatures criticising Erdogan’s policies and actions. @JoDiGraphics is mentiones ten times in the court’s ruling, that also demands the deletion of the image’s re-posts of the graph by other accounts and blogs.
