Post Istanbuls Camp Armen Attacked

Activists occupying the grounds of Camp Armen, the former Armenian summer camp located in the Tuzla district of Istanbul,were attacked on the hundredth day of their live-in demonstration. According to a statement released by the Armenian Nor Zartonk movement of Istanbul, two activists were attacked and beaten with sticks.

Soon after the attack, the Nor Zartonk movement shared a photo of a group of protesters with the caption ‘Racist/Fascist attacks will not intimidate us.’

The attack took place on the night of Aug. 13, at around 11:30 p.m. according to the statement. This attack, which is a manifestation of a genocidal mentality, cannot break our resolve. We publicly announce today that we will continue our struggle with the same determination, read a part of the statement, which also called on the public to stand in solidarity with protesters.

Armenian member of Turkeys Parliament Garo Paylan of the pro-Kurdish Peoples Democratic Party (HDP) tweeted that some of the activists sustained injuries, and urged the public for support. Soon after the attack, the Nor Zartonk movement shared a photo of a group of activists with the caption Racist/Fascist attacks will not intimidate us.

The Nor Zartonk Armenian movement of Istanbul has led a campaign to occupy the grounds of the camp since bulldozers arrived to demolish it in early May. After weeks of protest, the current owner of the campground, Fatih Ulusoy, said he would sign the transfer of the property over to the Gedikpa?a Armenian Evangelical Church Foundation; so far, the deed has not been transferred.
