Over the past year, Erdogan and his government have clamped down on civil liberties across Turkey, gutted public institutions and universities, heavily restricted the media and ordered mass arrests of activists, journalists and the political opposition. Erdogan said Turkey's citizens, following his call to resist, had saved Turkey's future.
A stream of light beams into the sky, from the ceremony to commemorate the one year anniversary of the July 15, 2016 failed coup attempt, close to the July 15 Martyrs' Bridge in Istanbul, late Saturday, July 15, 2017. Thirty-five coup plotters also died in clashes. The government is organising a "national unity march" at the iconic bridge where putschists shot civilians in Istanbul.
Erdogan's fiery speech before a huge crowd in Istanbul highlighted the lingering trauma of the failed coup, which killed 250 people over the course of a terrifying night and day of violence. Turkey is marking one year since the defeat of the coup aimed at ousting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, seeking to showcase national unity and his grip on power in an increasingly polarised society.
Erdogan inaugurated the structure, featuring the names of the "martyrs" on Saturday, as the nation marks the first anniversary of the coup attempt that was crushed by soldiers and police loyal to the government as well as by civilians who took to the streets. "Over the past year, the judicial proceedings... moved outside the framework of the law", Kilicdaroglu, whose party will boycott commemoration ceremonies later in the day, told parliament.
He also slammed western leaders for not fully appreciating the significance of what happened in Turkey on July 15, 2016. Gulen has denied the claims. The soldiers surrendered at daybreak.
In a statement issued on Saturday, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said: "I reiterate my strong message that any attempt to undermine democracy in any of our allied countries is unacceptable". The coup plotters bombed the country's parliament and other state buildings.
The government has blamed the coup attempt on loyalists of Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish cleric who lives in exile in Pennsylvania.
Yildirim thanked the thousands who heeded a call by Erdogan to flood the streets to resist the coup.
