  • Description

    ABOUT A THOUSAND STUDENTS DEMONSTRATED IN ISTANBUL'S TAKSIM SQUARE ON SATURDAY FOLLOWING AN AXE ATTACK ON A STATUE OF KEMAL ATATUK IN WEST TURKEY THE PREVIOUS DAY.

    THE STUDENTS MARCHED THROUGH THE STREETS OF ISTANBUL CARRYING FLAGS AND PLACARDS WITH SLOGANS PROTESTING AGAINST THE ATTACK. WHEN THEY REACHED TAKSIM SQUARE, IN THE CENTRE OF ISTANBUL, THEY GATHERED ROUND A STATUE OF ATATURK, THE FOUNDER OF MODERN TURKEY, AND HUNG GARLANDS ON THE STATUE.

    AS THE DEMONSTRATION PROGRESSED IT BECAME ANTI-GOVERNMENT AND ANTI-AMERICAN AND STUDENTS SHOUTED SLOGANS LIKE "YANKEE GO HOME" WHEN THEY SAW SAILORS FROM SHIPS OF THE VISITING AMERICAN 6TH FLEET. FOURTEEN STUDENTS WERE DETAINED BY THE POLICE.
