Anti-Erdogan ‘justice’ march completes 280 mile route in Istanbul

Huge crowds have packed central Istanbul at a mass rally in Istanbul to protest against President Erdogan’s rule. Tens of thousands of people joined the demonstration opposing the government crackdown which followed a failed military coup last July. The 23 day ‘march for justice’ was allowed to go ahead despite Turkey’s state of emergency – although President Erdogan accused the protestors of supporting terrorism.
