And he's attacking not just the military, judges, and the police, but he has also demanded that all university deans resign (!), and has barred foreign travel by academics and civil servants (including researchers and faculty at public universities). There is a petition protesting the "purge of academic institutions in Turkey," but given who we're dealing with here, I don't think petitions will have much impact. Academics here might do better to petition the Obama Administration to exercise its very real influence with Turkey. The EU could do the same.
Comments are open for more information, links, etc. Turkish academics can, of course, post anonymously.
