Day 34 - Today write to a dictator to stop torture

I wrote to Prime Minister Recep Tasyyip Erdogan to stop harrassment of Turkish Doctors.

He's not quite a dictator but being accused of it. I'm not sure legal action qualifies as torture but it is at least something.

I also wrote to our rep. Dave Joyce to stop violence against women.
