Respect Democracy | Respect People

TURKEY WAS INVADED FROM WITHIN ON THE 15TH OF JULY. The attackers tried to strangle democracy by targeting their freely elected officials. What the attackers had in hard power, guns, fighter jets, helicopters and tanks, was no match for the civilians' soft power. They came to the streets in drove, from diverse ages, occupations, political views to stand their ground. Some threw themselves before the tanks, and others boldly approached the gun wielding soldiers. Two hundred and fifty Turks died in the bloody faceoff. And another two thousand were injured. Turkey's democracy was preserved at a great cost.
