Safak Pavey is a Turkish diplomat known for her international work on human rights, humanitarian aid and for becoming the 1st ever disabled female member of the Turkish Parliament.

Pavey’s life has been nothing short of extraordinary.

At age 19, she moved to Switzerland in 1994 to commence her studies in Art and Film. Two years later, Pavey encountered a train accident in Zurich that would change her life forever. She was accompanying a friend who was terminally ill, carrying him in her arms up the stairs and into the coach, when suddenly the train began to move, its doors still open. In an attempt to protect her friend, she fell under the train and lost her arm and leg. Pavey recounts this day clearly: “There was a lasting, very loud noise while the train and its many wagons left the station. I managed to save my head with only some injury. My left arm was lying a bit further away, separated from me. My left leg was torn apart.” Whilst an experience would most likely dishearten many, instead it reshaped Pavey’s future and further motivated her to pursue her education and career.

In 1997 Pavey moved to London and studied international relations at the University of Westminster. Completing her post-graduate studies at the London School of Economics, she specialised in ‘nationalism, ethnicity and minority rights’. Since then, Pavey has worked vigorously in being the voice for minorities and continues to fight against injustices.

The contribution Safak Pavey has made to better the world should not go unnoticed. While there have been significant setbacks, it seems that there is very little that has tempered Pavey’s fierce passion and undeniable strength to fight for a better tomorrow.

With the invitation of Australian-Turkish communities CHP Representation, Safak Pavey will be visiting Melbourne and Sydney from 20-30 April 2018. Her visit is in the spirit of ‘civilian diplomacy’ to support the civic initiatives by ‘our community/organisations including Move the House – A Tree for Gallipoli, while sharing and fostering Australian/Turkish friendship around the commemorations during ANZAC week.

Pavey will have exchanges on democracy experiences, secularism, political participation of women, international migration, social and ecological good municipal practices with Australian policymakers, practitioners and civil society members.

She will participate in various events including the dinner in Melbourne on ANZAC eve to discuss the “Role of Democracy and its Future” and meet a number of Australian-Turkish community groups in both Melbourne and Sydney.

Atatürk bugünleri de görmüş! Amiral Soner Polat

TBMM’de yoğun tartışmalar yaşanıyor… Yıl 1924. Konu, Cumhurbaşkanı’nın nasıl seçileceğinin belirlenmesi! Çoğunluğun görüşü, Cumhurbaşkanı’nın da tıpkı vekiller gibi halk tarafından seçilmesi… Meclis’in ağırlık merkezi ezici bir şekilde bu yöne doğru kayıyor. Konunun kapanması an meselesi!

CUMHURBAŞKANI’NI KİM SEÇMELİ!

Tam da bu anda Mustafa Kemal Paşa ağır fakat emin adımlarla kürsüye doğru yöneliyor… Konuşmadan önce Meclis’i kartal bakışları ile süzüyor. Ve hemen sözlerini art arda sıralıyor:

“Efendiler, Cumhurreisi’nin halk tarafından seçilmesi mahsurludur! Vekillerin seçmesi en iyisidir. Nedenine gelince, yarın birisi çıkar ‘beni halk seçti’ diyerek krallığını ya da diktatörlüğünü ilan ederse, demokrasi tehlikeye girer! Tarihte örnekleri çoktur…”

Atatürk’ün ülke gerçeklerinin nasıl farkında olduğunu aşağıdaki diyalog açık seçik ortaya seriyor:

KARŞI DEVRİMİN AYAK SESLERİ!

Bir gün Kılıç Ali’nin evinde, Refik Koraltan Atatürk’e:

Paşam, dedi, itimat buyurun, Anadolu’nun en ücra köşesinde bir çobanın kalbini açtığınız zaman orada Mustafa Kemal yazar. Bu böyledir, Paşam…

Atatürk şu cevabı verir:

Beyefendi, Anadolu’nun ücra köşesinde bir köylünün, bir çobanın kalbini açtığınız zaman orada Mustafa Kemal yazdığını ben de zatıâliniz kadar biliyorum!

Amma benim kadar sizin de bilmenizi istediğim bir şey vardır ve o da şudur:

Orada bir çobanın bulunduğu yerin on dakika ilerisindeki bir köy imamı gelip o ismi oradan on dakikada siler!

İsterse istediği bir başka ismi yazar…

Bunu da sizin benim kadar bilmenizi isterim!

Bir faniye durup dururken dahi demiyorlar… İsveçli, “Mustafa Kemal gibi düşünmek!” sözünü boşuna sarfetmiyor… Ne mutlu Türk Milletine ki böylesine güçlü bir ışığı var… Sorunlar nedir ki! Dönüp Atatürk’e baksa yeter! Her türlü hastalığın reçetesi O’ndadır…
