    Ragip Zarakolu is a Saint. He has been an advocate for the truth for most of his life.
    For the sake of decency, Ragip Zarakolu dares to reveal truths. His first wife Ayse Zarakolu and now his son Deniz — he is indeed a remarkable man with a remarkable family too. Ragip Zarakolu has earned the name, “Human Rights Advocate.” Certainly, he has earned with every fiber in his body the honor of the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE. We love you Ragip. Ragip and his son MUST BE RELEASED FROM PRISON IMMEDIATELY!
