Detentions Draw Fierce Reactions; Protesters Gather At Cumhuriyet’s Headquarters


Following the detention of 11 opponents of AKP government - among them the prominent writer Ilhan Selcuk of Cumhuriyet, Workers’ Party chairman Dogu Perincek and former Istanbul University president Prof. Kemal Alemdaroglu - media organizations, Turkish NGO’s and politicians of opposition parties are slamming the move which they describe as an attempt by AKP government to silence and intimidate the voices of opposition, and an effort to divert the attention from the indictment filed for closing down of AKP.

Crowds of protesters are gathering in front of Cumhuriyet’s and Workers’ Party’s headquarters.
