راهپیمان عدالت در دروازه استانبول

Share Button

کمال قلیچ اوغلو رهبر راهپیمایی و حزب جمهوریخواه مردم ترکیه، دیشب یکشنه شب، اعلام کرد که ۳ کیلومتر پایان راهپیمایی به منطقه مالتَپه اسلامبول را میخواهد خود به تنهایی راهپیمایی کند. این پیام او بمعنی اینست که او نمیخواهد ریسک رو درروئی راهپیمایان با مقامات انتظامی  را بپذیرد ولی در عین حال  او سخنی هم که معنای آن پایان راهپیمایی باشد نگفته است. او گفته است که بعد از راهپیمایی تکنفره خود او، راهپیمایان میتوانند به او ملخق شوند. بنظر میرسد که او میخواهد در درجه اول با مقامات دادگستری یا دولتی مذاکره کند و نمیخواهد ریسک رودر رویی و سوزاندن شانس مصالحه از راه مذاکره را بپذیرد و در عین حال نمیخواهد با روانه کردن  مردم  به خانه هایشان و اعلام خاتمه راهپیمایی نیز انرژی جنبشی و اعتراضی را از مردم بگیرد و سبب ضعف روحیه در بین آنها گردد.

بهر حال میتوان احتمال داد که بموازات راهپیمایی مذاکراتی هم در جریان است. ولی نکته بسیار جالب در اظهارت قلیچ اغلو که در گزارشهای زیر هست، این میباشد که او از راهپیمان خواسته است از حمل هرگونه پرچم سیاسی و حزبی بشمول پرچم حزبی خود، بجز پلاکارد عدالت و عکس آتاتورک بعنوان “بنیانگذار ترکیه مدرن”  خود داری کنند. او در این پیام گفته است که که این حرکت حرکتی ملی است و هرکس هر پرچم دیگری را بیاورد بعنوان تحریک کننده (پروواکاتور) تلقی میشود.

خبر تکمیلی:

رهبر حزب جمهوریخواه خلق، کمال قلیچ اوغلو  Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu  راهپیمایی خود را بنام (مارش عدالت) برای ۳ کیلومترِ پایانی آن آغاز کرد. این راهپیمایی که از آنکارا به مقصد استانبول، قرار بود که امروز ۹ ژولای پایان یابد. قلیچ اوغلو دو کیلومتر از این سه کیلومتر باقی مانده  را بهمراه  تعدادی از نمایندگان پارلمانی فراکسیون CHP و یک کیلومتر آخر را به تنهایی طی خواهد کرد.

Main opposition CHP head Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu will ‘walk alone to the justice rally’

Main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has said he will walk alone to the “Justice Rally” in Istanbul’s Maltepe district on July 9, the 25th and last day of the “justice march” from Ankara to Istanbul.

The march was started after a court sentenced CHP deputy Enis Berberoğlu to 25 years in jail on charges of “leaking state secrets” regarding a National Intelligence Organization (MİT) trucks case on June 14.

The 25-day-long march from Ankara to Istanbul, a distance of around 426 kilometers, will be completed with the participation of thousands of marchers who say they are standing up “justice” regardless of their political stance.

“Our [justice] rally will be held tomorrow. I will walk alone to the location of the rally from Dragos [a district in Istanbul]. I urge citizens who have wanted to participate in the march not to wait for me in Dragos. I will walk to the rally alone. If you would like to participate, then you can of course come to the rally. I will arrive at the rally after walking two or three kilometers,” Kılıçdaroğlu added.

He also said he did not want any political signs or flags to be waved at the rally, including the CHP’s political party flag.

“When we hold this rally, I do not want anything except the Turkish flag, the ‘justice banner’ and the poster of Atatürk [the founder of modern Turkey]. I do not want the [CHP’s] political flag with six arrows. We all just want justice. We live under our national flag together. We do not consider it suitable for those to carry other flags. We also consider those carrying other flags as provocateurs,” he added.

Turkey’s main opposition prepares ‘world’s biggest petition’ for jailed journalists, academics

Daily News Hurriyet
July/09/2017

The main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) has been preparing what it claims to be the “world’s biggest petition” for jailed journalists and academics in Turkey.

The CHP is set to hold a major rally in Istanbul’s Maltepe district on July 9 to mark the end of its “justice march,” which started from Ankara, and the petition is being prepared in the rally area.

While the exact wording of the petition is unknown, it was stated that it concerns “those jailed unjustly.”

The main opposition started its “justice march” after an Istanbul court ruled for its Istanbul deputy Enis Berberoğlu’s arrest on July 14.

Istanbul, Turkey (CNN)Tens of thousands of Turkish citizens have marched an arduous 250 miles over three weeks for a protest in Istanbul on Sunday, to demand their government loosen its stranglehold on the country’s democracy.

The “March for Justice” has grown from a modest one-man protest by opposition party leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu, who vowed to walk from the capital, Ankara, to Istanbul after the imprisonment of one of his party’s MPs.
Kilicdaroglu has been joined by throngs of disaffected citizens along the way and expects a huge crowd to attend the rally this evening. They are directing their anger at one person in particular — their president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
“Turkey has stopped being a democratic country. It has become beholden to one man,” Kilicdaroglu told CNN. “This we cannot accept.”

Thousands of supporters hold a one-kilometer stream of Turkish flags in Sakarya on July 1 during the march.

The rally comes almost a year after a failed military coup radically changed the country’s direction. Following the coup attempt, Erdogan and his government have clamped down on civil liberties across the country, gutted public institutions and universities, heavily restricted the media and ordered mass arrests of activists, journalists and the political opposition.
The country has remained in a state of emergency for almost a year now, giving the Erdogan-led government extraordinary powers to detain anyone it sees as oppositional.
Among the marchers is 62-year-old Refika Ozturk, a retired municipality worker who has been walking for 10 days.
“I’m marching for my rights, the law and justice. You can do something as hard as walking like this for so long when you believe in it, when it’s for a cause,” she said in Istanbul on Saturday, sitting on a grassy patch, exhausted, with her shoes off. She was with friends, all wearing T-shirts that read “justice” in Turkish.
Despite the fatigue, the final leg to Istanbul was festive, with bands playing along the way.
Turkish protesters have regularly clashed with security forces over the past year, but the march has been remarkably peaceful, with police securing the protest from outside threats.
But it is unclear whether that harmony will continue in Istanbul, a city at the heart of Turkish liberalism where rallies are now banned from the famous Taksim Square.

A protester waves a Turkish flag with the nation's founder, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, superimposed on it.

The long walk to Istanbul has been painstaking for many — two people have suffered cardiac arrests, one of whom has died, while others are finding the heat unbearable and are rushing for water and shade at every opportunity. On other days, torrential rain is the enemy.
But the protest is also a sign that Turkey remains staunchly divided. While the march has been peaceful and is being cheered on by onlookers, the President’s supporters are also turning out to watch the protests, chanting “Erdogan, Erdogan” in response to the marchers’ chants of “Rights, law, justice.”

Turkey's main opposition party leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu began the march three weeks ago.

Where supporters of the protest drive by and make the peace or victory sign, Erdogan supporters stop to flash the four-finger Rabia sign, originally used in support of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood but since adopted by Erdogan’s fans.
This division has persisted in Turkey for some time. In April, Erdogan was granted sweeping new powers after narrowly winning a referendum that transferred powers from parliament to the executive branch of government. The presidency in Turkey is traditionally ceremonial, but Erdogan had taken the role to act as the nation’s leader and head of government. International monitors slammed the referendum for being conducted on an uneven playing field.
Kilicdaroglu, leader of the Republican People’s Party (CHP), has tried to brand his protest as beyond politics. No political logos are on display and he has called for Turks of all political affiliations to join.
He began the walk when a CHP parliamentarian was sentenced to 25 years in jail for giving an opposition journalist video allegedly showing Turkey sending weapons into Syria.

    Turkey protest: Istanbul rally concludes anti-Erdogan march

    Media captionPresident Erdogan has accused the marchers of supporting terrorism

    Tens of thousands of people are due to rally in the Turkish city of Istanbul at the end of a 450km (280-mile) protest march against the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

    Huge crowds have joined the “justice” march since it began in the capital Ankara on 15 June.

    They are demonstrating against the mass dismissals and imprisonments that followed last year’s failed coup.

    President Erdogan has accused the marchers of supporting terrorism.

    He said the Republican People’s Party (CHP) – which has organised the march – had gone beyond political opposition and was “acting with terrorist organisations and the forces inciting them against our country”.

    CHP leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu launched the march after one of his MPs, Enis Berberoglu, was arrested for allegedly leaking documents purporting to show that the government was arming jihadists in Syria.

    Mr Berberoglu denies the charge. Sunday’s rally is taking place in an area close to the jail in which he is being held.

    More than 50,000 people have been arrested and 140,000 dismissed or suspended since last year’s attempted military takeover.

    The detentions of human rights activists and leading journalists have drawn international condemnation.

    Mr Kilicdaroglu, who began the march and has walked around 20km a day, says the purges and emergency rule by Mr Erdogan constitute a “second coup”.

    The failed coup last July saw rogue soldiers bombing government buildings and driving tanks into civilians, killing more than 260.

    The BBC’s Mark Lowen in Istanbul says the march has become an unprecedented show of defiance against the President Erdogan.

    There is a widespread feeling that the government has seized the chance to crush all opponents, not just alleged coup supporters, our correspondent adds.

Justice Rally marks ‘a first step, a rebirth,’ says main opposition head Kılıçdaroğlu

ISTANBUL

July 9 marked a first step, a rebirth, main opposition Republican People’s Party leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu said at ‘Justice Rally’.

Describing the reason for starting his march, Kılıçdaroğlu said they had “walked for absent justice,” as well as the many jailed journalists and public employees dismissed from their duties with state of emergency decree laws.

He vowed that they would “bring justice to the country,” describing the current era was a “dictatorial era.”

Kılıçdaroğlu also referred to widespread injustices in Turkey’s justice system, saying “protecting rights of justice was the duty of all judicial workers.”

In line with this, he called for the Constitutional Court to remain strong, stressing that it should not simply “take instructions from the Presidential Palace.”

Police stopped entry to the meeting area saying it was full, while tens of thousands of people were still waiting outside, some of whom opted to watch Kılıçdaroğlu speech in cafes nearby.

Kılıçdaroğlu completed ‘justice march’ July 9 for finalizing the “justice rally,” as part of the final phase of his 24-day march from Ankara to Istanbul.

Kılıçdaroğlu walked two kilometers with fellow CHP deputies and a group of participants but will walk alone for the final kilometer.

Kılıçdaroğlu arrived at the rally following his three-kilometer walk.

Together, Kılıçdaroğlu and his supporters chanted rights, law and justice while they were walking.

Meanwhile, large numbers of participants have gathered and in Maltepe Square where the ‘justice rally’ is held. The speaker of the rally, Barış Bozkurt, said he addressed two million people in the Maltepe district.

Kılıçdaroğlu gave a brief break after completing the last one kilometer, before joining thousands waiting for him at the rally.

He had previously stated he would walk alone to the rally in Istanbul’s Maltepe district on July 9.

In the final kilometers of his walk, Kılıçdaroğlu was cheered on by thousands of supporters lined up on both sides of the road amid tight security precautions.

The march was kicked off on June 15 after a court sentenced CHP deputy Enis Berberoğlu to 25 years in jail on charges of “leaking state secrets” regarding a National Intelligence Organization (MİT) truck sending weapons to Syria.

Tens of thousands of people have gathered in Istanbul at the end of a 450km (280-mile) protest march against the government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

More and more people have joined the “justice” march since it began in the capital Ankara on 15 June.

They are demonstrating against the mass dismissals and imprisonments that followed last year’s failed coup.

President Erdogan has accused the marchers of supporting terrorism.

He said the Republican People’s Party (CHP) – which has organised the march – had gone beyond political opposition and was “acting with terrorist organisations and the forces inciting them against our country”.

The rally was the biggest show of defiance against President Erdogan since the Gezi Park protests four years ago.

CHP leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu said the rally marked “a new birth”.

He told the crowds: “Nobody should think this march is the last one. It’s the first step!”

He launched the march after one of his MPs, Enis Berberoglu, was arrested for allegedly leaking documents purporting to show that the government was arming jihadists in Syria.

Mr Berberoglu denies the charge. Sunday’s rally drew a sea of people to an area close to the jail in which he is being held.

More than 50,000 people have been arrested and 140,000 dismissed or suspended during a state of emergency in place since last year’s attempted military takeover.

The detentions of human rights activists and leading journalists have drawn international condemnation.

Mr Kilicdaroglu, who has walked around 20km a day for the past three weeks, condemns the coup attempt but says the purges and emergency rule by Mr Erdogan constitute a “second coup”.

He told crowds at the rally: “We marched for justice, we marched for the rights of the oppressed. We marched for the MPs in jail. We marched for the arrested journalists.

“We marched for the university academics dismissed from their jobs. We marched because the judiciary is under a political monopoly.”

The failed coup last July saw rogue soldiers bombing government buildings and driving tanks into civilians, killing more than 260.

The BBC’s Mark Lowen in Istanbul says there is a widespread feeling that the government has seized the chance to crush all opponents, not just alleged coup supporters.
