BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:41 A.M.) – Dozens of protesters gathered in Nuremberg’s Jakobsplatz on Sunday under the motto ‘No to dictatorial presidential system in Turkey’.

This was to show their support for a ‘no’ vote in Turkey’s upcoming constitutional referendum in April, that seeks to give greater powers to the president.

The protesters carried Turkish flags while some of them were equipped with banners of the founder of the modern Turkish Republic and the Republican People’s Party (CHP) Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

The CHP are a staunchly secular party in Turkey.

wouldn’t need much for that – but yes, a great part of the turks living here is ok, many of them could only be distinguished by name, and they are keenest critics of the akp and other religious bullshitters.

No needs almost nothing. But AKP and Grey wolves poison all and want religious civil war in Europe.

And will end with a civil war in Turkey only.
Anyway, ANY area ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood (AKA AKP, Qaeda etc) ends becoming a shithole simply because you can’t run a country by a book of religion, especially a modern one.

Actually, it’s Enver’s triumvirat that slaughtered millions, Kemal wasn’t in, thus, he was a military and once ruling, especially at the beginning, as he had to consolidate power it’s clear that, due to conditions, some actions resulted in serious blood spilled, surely more than once unjustly but, let’s face reality : nobody used to care about “collateral damages” until the… hippie era… And Erdolf still doesn’t except to serve his crappy dictatorial purposes. Thus, nothing common with the large scale genocides Enver-Pasha did : you should learn that the mass genocides were around 1915, Kemal had mostly no power until… Read more »
