Meltem Arikan

Governments protect us from sex
Governments protect us from internet
Governments protect us from freedom of speech
Governments protect us from us.

Goodnight and sleep tight Mr.Government!...

Hükümetler bizi sexten korur.
Hükümetler bizi internetten korur.
Hükümetler bizi ifade özgürlüğünden korur.
Hükümetler bizi bizden korur.

İyi uykular, tatlı rüyalar Hükümet Bey!..

Meltem Arıkan is a Turkish novelist and playwright. Her fourth novel Yeter Tenimi Acıtmayın (Stop Hurting My Flesh) was banned in early 2004 by the Committee to Protect the Minors from Obscene Publications, with the accusation of "Writing about the non-existing incest fact in Turkey, attempting to disturb the Turkish family order with a feminist approach.” The ban was lifted after two months and Arıkan has been awarded with “Freedom of Idea and Statement Prize 2004” by the Turkish Publishers’ Association. She published her 9th novel in 2009.
