turks get their groove back

Monday, July 10th, 2017

it has taken more than 1 year of turks facing the clamp down on free speech, the clamp down on the judiciary, the purging of intellectuals from universities, the grounding of turkey’s academic class before the opposition parties in turkey have pushed back. the recent jailing of one of the politicians from turkey’s main opposition party has inspired them to democratically push back against turkey’s president erdogan. the 25 day protest march across turkey ended yesterday with a rally with 1.5M people in istanbul where kemel kilicdaroglu of the republican people’s party spoke yesterday. **Updated 100K to 1.5M people**
