According to Bayrak (05.08.2016), Turkey is preparing for the “Democracy and Martyrs Meeting” to be held in Yenikapı on Sunday, the 7th of August.
The meeting will be held under the auspices of the Turkish Presidency and with the support of the Governorship of İstanbul and the Municipality of İstanbul.
The meeting area is being prepared for a capacity of serving 3.5 million participants.
1.5 million hats and 2.5 million Turkish flags were prepared for the “Democracy and Martyrs Meeting.”
Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has made a call to the TRNC people.
“Since it will be the Democracy and Martyrs Meeting, I didn’t want any other flag other than the Turkish flag to be brought to the meeting. In other words, we do not want political party flags, union flags or any other flags. However, the flags of both the “Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus” and Azerbaijan can be taken to the meeting” Erdogan said.
