Police Prevent CHP’s Sit-in Protest of State of Emergency
CHP finally began street protests, as many of the rank-and-file demanded, against State of Emergency and the violations of rule of law. Pictures from Istanbul indicate moderate crowds. Will CHP continue to use “the power of the street?” We don’t know, but if it does, AKP will have to choose between tolerating a new wave of mass dissent or police using excessive force.
