Murat Bay

(Journalist from Turkey, JiR in 2019)


“We are journalists who are working under pressure from governments or in conflict zones. We are pursuing facts which people need. When violence repeats itself, it becomes a part of our lives and becomes normal. It became my handicap. When I have joined the ECPMF family I felt the solidarity there. After six months in Leipzig I found the opportunity to clear my head and now I can see all the colours of life and they are sharper than before. Thanks a lot for all the things the ECPMF did for the other fellows and me. Thanks to my new ECPMF family.”
