Police block Saturday Mothers again
Entrance points to Galatasaray Square, from which the Saturday Mothers have been banned, were blocked by the police. There was a notable presence of dozens of rapid reaction force police officers sitting in the space where the Saturday Mothers have held their vigil for 700 weeks. The march of the relatives of the missing that set out from the Human Rights Association was blocked by the police. The announcement made by the relatives of the missing who staged a sit-down action in Büyük Parmakkapı Street included the statement, “We have been Galatasaray for 701 weeks because even though the culprits are known they have not been punished.”
