Petition to the UK government

Condemn the actions taken against peaceful protesters in Istanbul Turkey

Responsible department: Foreign and Commonwealth Office

 

There are gross human rights violations occurring in Istanbul, Turkey. Police have fired water cannons and smoke bombs into peaceful protests against the plans to put a development in the park Gezi in Taksim.

The government must condemn the disproportionate and violent response of the government to a peaceful protest, and instigate investigations into allegations of police attacks on A&E wards treating injured protesters.
