Voices rise against attacks on Armenians

Turkish Anti-Racism Poster

The spate of attacks on Armenians in Istanbul is now receiving considerable attention in the press and among advocacy groups in Turkey.  While initially covered in only the Armenian press, mainstream media outlets are now addressing the issue.

Moreover, anti-racism groups, like Durde, and human rights organizations like the IHD have launched a public campaign, including a rally today (January 27) in Samatya, the neighborhood where most of the attacks have taken place.  (Video here, in Turkish).  Opposition parties have also begun to raise questions about the attacks in Parliament.
