Two people were arrested in Turkey for praising the failed coup attempt on social media. Should the U.N. put a stop to these actions on humanitarian grounds?

  • People shouldn't be punished for social media posts

    The United Nations should put a stop to the arrests of innocent people who praise progressive government in places where that type of government is rare, such as Syria. People shouldn't be held liable for the opinions they share on social media, which the U.N. can support politically by banning the practice.

  • Yes, the UN should stop this.

    These arrests, which are arrests based on people's political beliefs, are a violations of their human rights. The UN was founded to protect human rights and to promote peace. It is their job and their duty to prevent and to stop arrests like the ones that e occurred in Turkey.

  • No, praising an illegal action is not right.

    The two people arrested for praising the failed coup attempt in Turkey should not warrant the U.N to put a stop to those actions on humanitarian grounds because there was no violation of their rights. Freedom of expression is not absolute and that said their action of raising an illegal activity amounts to criminality.

  • Turkey has their own government

    The idea that the UN (or the US) needs to step in to fix everything that's terrible in the world needs to end immediately. Plenty of terrible things happen across the world all the time, and it's simply impossible to intervene in all of these places without significant blowback. Let Turkey handle its own problems.
