Lufthansa! Declare you will cease all shipments of crowd control chemicals to Turkey at once!

We call on Lufthansa to issue a statement explicitly stating they will not transfer tear gas or other crowd control chemicals to Turkey...Have the senior management of Lufthansa ever felt the effects of tear gas? Have they ever been shot by a canister which specifically carries the instructions "Do not aim directly at humans"?... Have they ever experienced first-hand the disproportionate use of force, being fired upon for expressing one's constitutionally guaranteed and universally democratic right to assemble and have one's voice heard?..If they did, they would have found a regulatory and moral reason not to ship such cargo for use by a police force which has demonstrated unthinkable brutality against its own citizens...Lufthansa must make it clear it will not aid and abet the ruthless persecution of peaceful protesters who have a right to have their opinions heard...
