turkish: According to human rights advocacy group PEN International, Dogan was convicted in March 2017 of propagandizing for a terrorist organization, according to CTV. It says Dogan argued at her trial that painting a real-life event based upon a photo taken and disseminated by the Turkish military was part of her work as a journalist. Zehra Dogan, an ethnic Kurd, was jailed after painting the Turkish flag flying over the rubble of a destroyed town. Banksy's 70-foot-long mural consists of black tally marks representing Dogan's days in a Turkish prison. A lower corner of the mural bears the slogan Free Zehra Dogan. Dogan is shown jailed behind one set of marks, grasping one that's transformed into a large pencil. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
