  • Description

    UNIVERSITY STUDENTS IN ISTANBUL, TURKEY, STAGED A GIANT ANTI-COMMUNIST AND RALLY ON SUNDAY. THE STUDENT'S RALLY WAS REPORTED TO BE IN RETALIATION TO A MEETING HELD EARLIER BY THE LEFT WING TURKISH LABOUR PARTY.

    THE STUDENTS GATHERED IN SULTANAKMET SQUARE AND, LED BY MUSICIANS AND PEOPLE IN CEREMONIAL DRESS, THEY MARCHED THROUGH THE STREETS OF THE CITY TO TAKSIM SQUARE. THE STUDENTS CARRIED LARGE BANNERS, BEARING ANTI-COMMUNIST SLOGANS.

    IN TAKSIM SQUARE, STUDENT LEADERS ADDRESSED THE GATHERING, URGING THE STUDENTS TO RESIST ANY TENDENCIES TOWARDS COMMUNISM IN TURKEY.

    THE MAIN TARGET OF THE STUDENT DEMONSTRATION WAS SAID TO BE THE TURKISH LABOUR PARTY, WHICH THE RULING CONSERVATIVE JUSTICE PARTY CONSIDERS SUBVERSIVE. UNDER A NEW ELECTION LAW, INTRODUCED LAST WEEK, THE LABOUR PARTY WILL IN FUTURE BE RESTRICTED TO ONLY THREE SEATS IN PARLIAMENT, AS AGAINST THEIR PREVIOUS 14.
