Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been facing heat over his decision to increase government control over the Internet. Some Internet users have already turned to Turkey VPN services to regain access. They believe that they have the right to access the content that they want to view. The prime minister is now threatening to block Facebook and YouTube access. But users with reliable Turkey VPNs need not worry. They will be able to continue accessing the social sites. And the remaining brave journalists who continue to report on the Turkish government corruption scandal can benefit as well.
Why Block Facebook and YouTube
Erdogan’s latest statement on censorship in the country came as more of a warning than an FYI. He made the statement after new information about government corruption in the country came out on the two platforms. Many journalists have either submitted to Turkish crackdowns on government criticism or been removed from their positions. But a few others remain steadfast in meeting their objective of exposing the culprits. Their latest attempts to report their findings on social platforms has elicited the hostile response from the prime minister. One of these was audio recordings that seem to reveal plans between Erdogan and his son on how to hide very large amounts of money. Another is photos of bundles of money in shoeboxes. Yet another shows the prime minister’s interfering in court cases and trade deals.
Erdogan said that the ban on Facebook and YouTube would take effect in April. And he hinted at other related moves that would come at the same time. The possibility of an imminent ban on YouTube and Facebook has a lot of people focused on rights issues. Especially since Turkey is an applicant for EU membership. The criticism began when Turkey began restricting Internet in the country. And this latest threat over Facebook and YouTube content has only fed the fire. Turkey is an EU-hopeful country, and media censorship will not help their application. The reasons for the censorship will hurt their case even more. It stands to reason that the government would attempt to suppress any evidence to protect their prospects.
Using a Turkey VPN to Regain Access and Remain Safe
Internet users can make use of a reliable Turkey VPN to regain access to content that has been blocked by the government. Reliable Turkey VPNs will also be able to help them get past future content restrictions. The people want to know what is happening in their country, especially when it involves a serious corruption scandal. They can continue to read reports on this and other issues by connecting to a Turkey VPN. The connection will route them through an anonymous IP address from a server in another country. They can view everything privately, as if they were someone else, somewhere else.
People need other people to gather information and write reports before they can read it. The same Turkey VPN service can also help journalists to research and share their findings anonymously.

With Turkey VPNs, they can report the news so their fellow countrymen can stay informed.ExpressVPN is one of the reliable Turkey VPNs that can provide complete online anonymity.
