Portland, USA

On the 2nd of Jun, around 100 people gathered in Pioneer Courthouse Square in order to support the protests in Turkey. Turkish flags and banners on which “Turkey, resist!” and “Portland is with you” were written were carried by the demonstrators. People shouted the slogans such as “Tayyip resign!” and “Hand in hand against fascism”. The Americans who got interested were provided with information on the actual situation in Turkey. During the demonstration the national anthem and Mustafa Kemal’s “Address to youth” were recited.
