Police in Turkey’s southeastern province of Diyarbakır have attacked members of KESK (Confederation of Public Workers’ Unions) who had gathered in the city center to give a press statement against the massive dismissals of workers of public institutions in scope of the state of emergency.

As the online news portal Artı Gerçek has reported, the demonstrators started a sit-in when the police did not allow them to read their press statement.

Attacking the group during their sit-in, the police took around 20 people into custody violently and prevented journalists from taking images of the scene.
