A “GAZETTE” FOR EACH HOUSE - İnci GÜL

11 Ocak 2016 Pazartesi 13:32

Only the ones who carry out this profession can understand, how toilsome is journalism as much as being pleasant. As it will not be enough to memorialize our best valuables only once a year such as “Mothers` Day, Fathers` Day, Valentine`s Day ...”, it will be injustice to remember our suffering journalists only on “January 10, Journalists` Day”

It is brought significant rehabilitations to the journalists with the 1961 constitutions in Turkey. Nine newspaper owners decides not to publish papers for three days to protest this law. Thereupon, a great crowd of journalists come together on January 10, and perform a few activities to protect their rights and the freedom of the press. They themselves publish their own paper for three days, named “Press” on January 11, 12 and 13 to announce their rights and not to leave the country newspaperless. It becomes custom to celebrate January the 10 as “Journalists` Feast” after that date. However afterwards, under the effect of March 12, 1971 constraints, the word “Feast” is eliminated and the day is continued to be remembered as “January 10, Journalists` Day”

It needs a strong heart to be a “journalist”, it needs devotion to be a “journalist”, it needs love to be a “journalist”, one should work very hard to be a “journalist”... journalist in quotes... That is, the ones who perform this profession properly.

Getting he power from our personality matured from the above facts, we decided to put our hands not beneath a stone but a huge rock and started publishing our own paper “your Gazette” on 2014 “January 10, Journalists` Day” to emphasize its meaning and to show the real journalism to our Adana and to our Turkey.

Right in our first issue we accepted the principles; TO BE AWARE OF THE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES AND MAINTAIN A PEACEFUL PRESS POLICY, AND TO BE A RELIABLE AND FAIR-MINDED SOURCE .

We tried our best to realize our mission; to work hard to publish every new issue better, more comprehensive and more qualified than the previous one.

Our vision was; to increase the number of readers under the slogan of “a Gazette for each house” and to develop the awareness of responsibility as well as contributing positively in the changes and developments of the world.

Two years passed away... A tremendous two years...

There were ones frustrating us. Blocking our fronts... denigrating campaigns... “will close after three months” sayings... and then wondering the power behind us. But WE HAVE NEVER INTIMIDATED.  On the contrary, these words acted as a whip on our back... We are motivated more and more. Our motivation affected our Gazette to be much better with our perseverance and our belief of the power of the God.

On May 01, 2014 i purchased the Adalet newspaper, which had been published 10 years continuously. Gazette developed day by day... We, as the GAZETTE FAMILY improved ourselves and at the same time developed our GAZETTE. We realized our mission; to work hard to publish every new issue better, more comprehensive and more qualified than the previous one, and we do our best for its continuation.

We managed to realize our voice to be heard abroad through our  web page. Many Turkish citizens living in tens of foreign countries, and foreigners follow us. Many columnists from different countries such as USA, Italy, Germany and Bosnia Herzegovina contribute to our Gazette. Giving the due of a local paper, on the other hand, we prepare ourselves to be a national and then an international newspaper.

Meanwhile we show to our Adana how the journalism should be. We teach honest journalism to them, together with our staff mostly reared by ourselves.

Some criticize us, some imitate...

The day will come, EVERYBODY WILL IMITATE.

And in that day the number of paper reading will increase.

And in that day a GAZETTE will be read in each house, and in that day we will put greater visions in front of us...

Happy our “January 10, Journalists` Day”.

Happy BIRTHDAY to our GAZETTE.
