In the aftermath of student protests last week, which included egg attacks against politicians and the police’s use of disproportionate force against student protestors, many have begun to question what police and students should do so these unsavory pictures from student protests do not emerge again.
Ćamil Ćener funded the construction of a school in the Ziyaret neighborhood in MuĆ’s Varto district by selling his animals after seeing the difficulties faced by his daughters in going to the school in the next village. The Varto educational director congratulatedĆener for his initiative.
In one of the newspapers out there, I recently saw a photograph of a young woman throwing an egg. This did not seem to me to be a reflection of any justified anger, but rather the action of a student who has never experienced true injustice in her life.
Is it really so difficult, acting with understanding towards the younger generation? Is it really that difficult to, as the government, create platforms to lend an ear to what the youth of the nation have to say?
In recent days, we have noted that the opposition has begun to gain hope from the protest movements of the nation’s youth. There is an effort at hand to create an oppositional actor who will make things tough for and help break down the government.
For days a heated debate has been going on in Turkey about two recent student protests, one of which was held in front of DolmabahĂ§e Palace last weekend and the other at Ankara University on Wednesday.
Just as Turkey was debating a clash between police and students inÄ°stanbul over the weekend and the police’s use of disproportionate force against the students, a group of students from Ankara University held a protest at which they threw eggs at panelists of a conference at the university on Tuesday, prompting many to put the student protests under a magnifying glass.
