Trouble in Istanbul or just precautions?

Jump to last reply

I'm currently in Istanbul (Wonderful place, trip report to follow- eventually). Something happened yesterday that aroused my curiosity.

We were in Kadakȍy, eating a meal, when we noticed all the outside tables in the street were being moved inside. new customers were being turned away, some places were closing up (This was around 6pm) and the waiters were politely dissuading people from ordering extra courses and suggesting it was time to leave as soon as convenient. Several businesses displayed photocopied signs reading "Bariş mitingine yapilan alçak saldiriyi kiniyoruz!".

The waiter hinted at some sort of demonstration coming along this street. There was a smallish group of women protesting a little further down , handing out leaflets that read "Bariş için Kadin Girişimi’nden Greve Çağri"

Down near the ferry terminals, the police were out in force - some in full riot gear, and police armoured vehicles with water canon were also present.

By googling the Turkish phrases I am guessing that :
The photocopied signs were a general condemnation of the weekend's Ankara bombings
The group of protesters were a women's peace initiative group (? possibly affiliated to the victims in Ankara?)

The small number (aprox 20) of women didn't seem to merit the heavy security presence, so I wondered if there was some other demonstration planned?

I have no political purpose in posting this - I have neither the knowledge nor the right to make any judgements, but I was curious as to whether trouble was expected, whether this was a normal preparation for a demonstration, or if it might have been heavier than normal in response to allegations that the Ankara meeting had been insufficiently protected.
