Re: Turkish Referendum

Look to what Erdogan said in the poem he was jailed for ,for the provocation of its intent , and why he keeps on building them before schools ,hospitals etc now .They have there use to him .

"The minarets are our bayonets the domes our helmets the mosques our barracks and the faithful our soldiers."


How Erdogan uses Turkey's mosques to push 'yes' vote

Picture this: A group of well-mannered, middle-aged men and women are traveling to the picturesque Aegean town of Ayvalik as the mosque’s loudspeakers announce, “Strangers have entered our village, do not open your doors.” Members of the secular nongovernmental organization (NGO) Ataturkist Thought Association experienced this April 4 as they approached the town to talk to the residents about the upcoming referendum.

They were the ones the imam called strangers. Ahmet Uzgec, the head of the NGO, told the media that there is quite a bit of confusion among citizens.

Some elderly were told that if the April 16 referendum on providing greater powers to the Turkish presidency does not pass, their retirement funds will be cut off, along with the government aid provided for the disabled.

The event in Ayvalik, where advocates of the NGO were shunned by the imam, was not an isolated incident.

Re: Turkish Referendum

I thought a very well written piece. It is quite long but it gives different aspects that I enjoyed reading.

Erdogan's Turkey - BBC News

We will just have to wait and see how it all plays out post 16th.

Re: Turkish Referendum

Very interesting

Bottom line it's clear to everyone he wants to run a dictatorship-let's not dress it up

So if that's what they opt for it's their choice. If it isn't, then that's their choice too

If they feel the result is manipulated then they need to make their voice heard.

For us who haven't a clue about Turkish politics it's quite worrying the direction Turkeys going. For the sake of the ordinary person in the street I hope that things work out.

Re: Turkish Referendum

We've seen the attitudes between winners & losers in the UK over Brexit, could get a bit rougher between the winners & losers in Turkey.
