The independent, anti-government web portal Diken (in English: thorn) was launched in 2014 by media entrepreneur Harun Simavi as a counterweight to Turkey's predominantly pro-government media. It claims to defend democracy, fundamental rights and secularism. Some of its articles are also published in English.
