Justice for Furkan Dogan


Three years ago this week,
in international waters, the Israeli navy intercepted a flotilla of ships attempting to deliver humanitarian goods to the Gaza Strip and to break Israel's illegal blockade.

Israeli commandos stormed the ships and killed eight Turkish citizens and 18-year-old U.S. citizen Furkan Dogan aboard the Mavi Marmara.

But instead of investigating Furkan's killing and holding Israel accountable, the Obama administration deferred to Israel’s investigation, which predictably exonerated all of the Israeli soldiers involved and failed to provide any explanation for Furkan's killing. Disturbingly, the Obama administration even engaged in diplomatic efforts to obstruct attempts to obtain international accountability for the attack, according to documents obtained by the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

Please take a minute to add your name to this petition calling on President Obama to investigate Furkan Dogan’s killing and hold Israel accountable.
