19th January 2007 was a black day. Journalist Hrant Dink was assassinated by a Turkish nationalist. Hrant was a brave man who refused to remain silent despite threats on his life. Today - after four years - the pain is still fresh. The anger towards fascism and the will to escape from our stinking black-minded ignorance keeps growing.

Just like other intellectuals of this land whose lives were taken away - Ahmet Taner Kışlalı, Bahriye Üçok and Uğur Mumcu to name a few - he has a place in our hearts. Their ideas and thoughts shed light on our path to peace.
