The biggest anti-Recep Tayyip Erdogan ever organized protest took place on Sunday evening in Istanbul.
The incredible demonstration also symbolized the end of a massive march that lasted for 25 days.
Thousands, led by the chief of the Turkish opposition, traveled 450 kilometers on foot from Ankara to Istanbul in 25 days.
Most protesters claim their country turned into this dictatorship, comparing Erdogan’s regime with the one imposed by the late Adolf Hitler.
Most of them gathered on the shores of the Marmara Sea, holding Turkish flags and cursing their president from the top of their lungs.
Meanwhile, Turkey’s opposition leader is accusing Recep Tayyip of seizing the power because, after the failed coup from last year, he pretty much abused from his influence to take over the entire state.
“I want everyone to know it’s a dictatorship. The best example is Germany of the 1940s, a situation similar to what we are going through now. The way in which the state of emergency, which proved to be a civil state blow, has been given executive, legislative and judicial powers to one man”, stated opposition leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu.
While hundreds of thousands of people were contesting him, Recep Erdogan met with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in a secluded area of Istanbul.
The head of the US diplomacy praised the Turks who defended the country’s villagers last year, but said nothing about the wave of arrests that followed, nor did they mention the hundreds of thousands of demonstrators in the metropolis who called the emergency units.
