The government of Turkey proves once more its anti-worker character, the postponement for 60 days of the strike, practically means that the workers of Şişecam, Turkey’s biggest glassware company, have to submit to their employer’s demands regarding the collective bargaining process that started on December 12, 2016.

TurkeyFor the 23rd April Grup Yorum planned its traditionally concert with the title »independent Turkey« in Istanbul/Yenikapi. In the past years the concerts were over and over banned and also Germany has more and more joined the AKP politics by refusing visas for the band, which has also organized peaceful concerts with up to ten thousands fans for decades in Europe.

Grup Yorum could count up to a million visitors at its concerts for an »independent Turkey« in Istanbul. Despite of preventions by the governemnt in the past years, it was still able to organize concerts with hundred thousands, or in worst case spontanous concerts with its fans in several neighborhoods and streets of Istanbul. We translated the latest statement of Grup Yorum, concerning the ban of the concert.

The attitude of the AKP government alleging to be giving the choice on the one hand and on the other, choking the rest alternatives, has no result other than increasing the distrust and delegitimizing the electoral result. But, it cannot change our firm attitude on our campaign for ‘NO’.
