French writer: protests against Patriot missiles planned in Turkey

PanARMENIAN.Net - It looks like NATO Patriot missile systems split Turkish society. Recently the cleavage has become more sharply defined. Growing dissatisfaction with foreign military presence in Turkey leads to social unrest, according to an article written by French writer Fransua Borle.

“Particularly something serious might happen next week. Mass protest actions against Patriot missiles and possible NATO military intervention in Syria are planned. According to Turkish media and information obtained from social networks these actions will be carried out on April 23.

Turkey tries to prove itself as a part of the Western world. However a large amount of population does not want Turkey to be used in promoting interests of Washington and Brussels in the Middle East. Public discontent that resulted in protest actions against the deployment of Patriot missiles that we’ve witnessed in recent months clearly show that.

Now the situation is becoming even more tense. Early this week Turkish patriotic movement called Turkey Youth Union has carried out a large-scale hacker attack on Turkish mass media. Activists from Turkey Youth Union are known for beating German soldiers and other anti-NATO protest actions. This time they placed their banners on the main pages of Turkish media resources websites.

According to Turkish media and social networks hackers also attacked fax machines of Turkish citizens including politicians and other public figures urging them to join protest marches planned on April 23

I would not recommend you to visit Turkey in the near future. It’s not safe in there for Americans and Europeans nowadays. A lot of people in Turkey don’t like us there and it seems they are ready to take violent actions,” the article reads.
