Education without Permission

Alexandre Borovik writes about a disturbing story coming out of Turkey. Ali Nesin organizes a summer school in mathematics in a village near Epheseus in Turkey. For some sort of bureaucratic rule violations (including “education without permission”), he has been arrested and the school has been shut down.

Alexandre has a follow-up post with more details, and a online petition. Contact details are provided if you want to add your name to the petition.
