‘Justice has been destroyed’: Turkey commemorates failed coup in shadow of crackdown
President Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey and opposition members came together on Saturday to mark the anniversary of last year’s failed coup. Erdogan also later joined thousands making their way towards the bridge where last year crowds of civilians stood defiant in front of tanks and troops halting traffic between the city’s European and Asian sides. Many of the marchers waved Turkish flags and photographs of those who died. Roads near the bridge, since renamed July 15 Martyrs’ Bridge, were thronged with marchers and some opted to take ferries rather than navigate the heavy crowds.
