Protesters toss out computers to protest internet restrictions law [Cihan News Agency (Turkey)]
(Cihan News Agency (Turkey) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ISTANBUL (CIHAN)- A group of youngsters chucked their computers out at Taksim square in Istanbul to protest the recently passed law which brings some restrictions on the internet. Speaking to the press, the group member Soner Tuncel stated that the government probably wants a country where no one uses internet. I hope they will get the message of this protest properly.
13 members of a liberal youngsters movement 3H carried out an interesting protest to draw attentions on to the new internet restrictions law. Gathering in the famous Taksim square of the Istanbul, group members read a press statement and tossed out their computers they brought along.
"AK Party Government finally achieved their goal about taking the internet under the control. But they should know that such censorship laws don't come to the agenda of the parliament in the democratic countries. You may find examples of this law in the countries such as North Korea which are being ruled by dictators. This law clearly refers to the violation of fundamental rights and freedoms," said the group member Baris Ertürk who read the statement on behalf of the group.
