Yesterday, there were verbal protests. For example, the President of the Turk Criminal Law Association, Lawyer Fikret İlkiz condemned the attack on the lawyers and said: ‘These enormous buildings, we call palaces, are not built for lawyers tobe beaten, dragged on the floor, and thrown out”. He added “lawyers have not bowed to such attacks throughout history and they will not now” http://m.t24.com.tr/haber/ilkiz-saray-dediginiz-koskoca-binalar-avukatlarin-dovulmesi-icin-insa-edilmedi/231789

Today, lawyers were out in numbers. One said “were 100 yesterday. today we are 1000s’ – Around 2000 lawyers are protesting against the detention of their about 70 colleagues yesterday.
