IstanbulPride

Police officers used tear gas, dogs, and batons to split up people participating in Istanbul’s 16th Anuual Pride March this Sunday. Despite the march going on for more than a decade, Istanbul’s governor banned the march for the fourth consecutive year. Last year, the governor cited concerns about “public order” and the “security of citizens and tourists” after an ultranationalist group threatened the march. https://twitter.com/ChristensenLene/status/1013435220534677505?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1013435220534677505&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Finstinctmagazine.com%2Fpost%2Fistanbul-pride-marchers-ran-tears-after-police-violently-dispersed-crowd That said, it is illegal for the governor to ban the march no matter what his public...
