A dismissed teacher in Turkey who wanted to protest the dismissal of educators in the country was battered by private security guards in front of the National Education Ministry building in Ankara, Evrensel newspaper reported on Wednesday (July 5).

The protesting teacher Nazife Onay had also been holding demonstrations in front of İstanbul’s famous Cevahir Mall in the busy Şişli district to demand her job back. She had been taken into custody several times in İstanbul, where she used to work as a teacher prior to being discharged under the government’s massive crackdown launched in response to a failed coup attempt.

In front of the Ministry’s building in Ankara, she unfurled a banner that read ‘Return Nuriye and Semih to work’. The two educators, Nuriye Gülmen and Semih Özakça, who have become symbolic of the resistance and struggle of tens of thousands who lost their jobs, have been jailed over a month and left behind 119 days of their hunger strike which they started as their earlier calls had not been hear by authorities.

In front of the education ministry’s building, teacher Nazife Onay was battered by a private security guard who first grabbed her from the throat and then pushed her head towards the ground.

In the video image recorded, a second guard is seen as running towards the person with the camera and saying ‘do not record it.’

Both teacher Nazife Onay and a supporting friend, Nazan Bozkurt, were taken into custody after the incident, reports said.
