History and profile
Evrensel was founded on 7 June 1995. The issues captured and written are from a socialist perspective. The paper is different from other Turkish newspapers in that it presents an indepth research into issues surrounding the workers-unions.
Metin Göktepe, 27-year-old journalist whose death in police custody in 1996 caused public protests and outcry, was on duty as a reporter for Evrensel on the day of his detention and murder.
