Dogan Özgüden - Inci Tugsavul 



Dogan Özgüden and Inci Tugsavul work and carry on fight together for more than 40 years.

Son of a railwayman family and born in Kalecik (Ankara) in 1936, Özgüden passed all his childhood years in Anatolian villages. He made his high school education in Ankara and got a licence diploma from the Higher School of Economic and Commercial Sciences (YETO) in Izmir.

He began journalism career in 1952 in Izmir. After having worked at the newspapers Ege Günesi, Sabah Postasi, Milliyet and Öncü in Izmir, Gece Postasi and Sosyal Adalet in Istanbul, he directed as chief editor and main editorialist the most important left-wing daily Aksam (1964-66).

Engaged in the left-wing movement, Özgüden militated in the Workers' Party Of Turkey (TIP) from 1962 and elected to this party's central committee in 1964.

Born in 1940 in Ankara, Inci Tugsavul-Özgüden had her higher education at the Faculty of Law of the Ankara University. She began journalism career in 1961 at the daily Hür Vatan and the weekly Kim, later worked at the dailies Hareket (1962-63) and Aksam (1964-66).

Tugsavul was awarded with the Prize of  Journalist of the Year in 1962 by the Journalists' Trade Union of Ankara and in 1963 by the Journalists' Association of Istanbul.

Özgüden and Tugsavul founded and directed the socialist review Ant and the Ant Publishing House (1967-71). Both were accused more than 50 times of having committed "crime of opinion" in the articles that they wrote or published.  After the military coup of 1971, Ant was closed down.  Threatened by a total of more than 300-year imprisonment, they had to leave Turkey.

In Europe they organized with other opponents in exile the Democratic Resistance of Turkey after 12 March coup and the Union for Democracy in Turkey after the 12 September coup in order to mobilize European public opinion against the repressive regimes.

Since 1974, they edit in Brussels the Info-Turk Agency which informs the world opinion of the situation of human rights in Turkey (http://www.info-turk.be)
 

INFO-TURK

and lead the Sun Workshops (Ateliers du Soleil), a multicultural permanent education organization (http://www.ateliersdusoleil.be).



After the 1980 military coup, Özgüden and Tugsavul were respectively chairman and responsible for publication of the Union for Democracy in Turkey (DIB), founded in Europe for resisting against the military junta.

Along with more than 200 other opponents of the regime in exile, they were deprived of their Turkish nationality in 1982 because of their criticisms against the military junta. Although this decision was annulled after ten years, the Foreign Affairs Ministry has declined to give them a written guarantee that they would not be indicted or imprisoned for the accusations that the same ministry communicated earlier to the European Human Rights Commission.

On the contrary, more than 30 years after the military coup, the Turkish Justice indicted Dogan Özgüden in 2002 for insulting army chiefs because of his article criticizing putschist generals. The tribunal ordered his arrest at the checkpoint if he returns to Turkey in order to judge him. The trial restarted later on according to Article 301 of the new Turkish Penal Code has been suspended unti to his arrestation in the case of returning to Turkey.

One of the former leading members of the Journalists' Association of Turkey (TGC), the Journalists' Trade Union (TGS) and the Ethical Council of the Press (BSD) in Turkey, Dogan Özgüden is now a member the Journalists' Association of Turkey (TGC), the Association of Professional Journalists of Belgium (AGJPB) and the Brussels Center of Intercultural Actions (CBAI).
 
He is author of many books and studies, mainly On Fascism (1965, Istanbul), On Capitalism (1966, Istanbul), File on Turkey (1972, France), Turkey, Fascism and Resistance  (1973, The Netherlands; 2006, Belgium), Mass media and Turkish Migrants (1983), The Portrait of Turkish Migration (1984), Black Book on the Militarist "Democracy" in Turkey (1986 - 2010), Extreme Right in Turkey (1988), Stateless Journalist I (2010), Stateless Journalist II (2011),
Writings from exile, Volumes I et II (2019), Volume III (2020), Volume IV (2021).

Former member of the Journalists' Association of Turkey (TGC) and the Journalists' Trade Union (TGS ), Inci Tugsavul-Özgüden is now member of the International Press Association (API) in Brussels. She is the author of the Introduction to the Classical Music (1965, Istanbul) and Turkish Women (1991, Brussels).
