In less than two weeks, Turkish voters will decide whether to extend the powers of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The constitutional referendum is set for April 16.
Public opinion studies show the vote will be close.
Most television news channels in Turkey broadcast at least three campaign speeches a day in support of a "Yes" vote on the presidential powers issue. The so-called "No" campaign gets only about 10 percent of the air time that the "Yes" vote gets.
So, the "no" campaign is turning increasingly to social media.
But that comes with risks.
Rights groups say prosecutors are targeting people who use social media to help the "no" campaign gain strength.
Ali Gul is a law student in Turkey. He made an internet video that explained why people should vote "no." The humorous video told of the dangers of putting too much power into one person's hands. At the end of the video, Gul asked, "Will I get arrested if this video is popular?"
Gul's video spread quickly on social media. Days later, he published another video. In it, he said he knew he would be soon be arrested.
"But it is not important, I am not afraid," he said. "The children and youth of this nation deserve freedom and happiness — and not fear, imprisonment and death."
Gul was later arrested but, apparently, not for the video. He was detained instead for Twitter messages the government says he wrote. The two-year-old tweets were considered insulting to the president -- a crime punishable by three years in jail.
Gul denies writing the tweets. But his lawyers say he is likely to remain detained for many months as he waits for a trial.
Gul is not alone. In the past six months, more than 2,500 people have been accused of insulting the president online.
Observers say such risks are likely to remain as the "power bill" campaign comes to an end.
This year they have introduced three new products to extend their range.
The concert will be broadcast live on television and radio.
I did not mean to insult you.
Police have detained two suspects in connection with the attack.

土耳其的大多数电视新闻频道每天至少广播3次埃尔多安拉“赞成票”的演说 。而所谓“反对票”宣传所占用的播出时间仅是“赞成票”播出时间的10%左右 。
古尔是土耳其的一名法律专业学生 。古尔制作了一个视频上传了互联网，视频讲解了投“反对票”的原因 。这则视频幽默风趣，对一个人权力过大所引发的危险娓娓道来 。视频结尾处，古尔还抛出了一个问题“如果这个视频火了，我会被逮捕吗？”
古尔的视频在社交媒体上迅速传播 。几天后，他又发布了另一个视频 。这个视频中，古尔说他知道自己就快被抓了 。
“但这不重要，我并不害怕，”古尔说 。“土耳其的孩子和年轻人值得拥有自由和快乐——我们不该面临恐惧、监禁和死亡 。”
后来古尔还是被逮捕了，但显然并不是因为视频的原因 。政府方面表示，古尔被逮捕是因为他写的推文内容 。这则推文时至今日已有2年之久，对总统埃尔多安造成了侮蔑性的影响——这项罪名可判刑入狱3年 。
古尔否认写过这样的推文 。但古尔的律师表示，古尔在等待最终审讯前很可能要待在监狱数月之久 。
古尔并不是一个人在战斗 。在过去的半年中，已有2500多人因在互联网上冒犯总统埃尔多安而被控诉 。
