You’re Not Alone – Ankara Bombing Solidarity Demonstrations


Tens of Thousands fill the streets of Istanbul, Turkey on Saturday evening. Banner reads “Killer State”

In the wake of Saturday’s horrific bombing attack on a Peace Rally in Ankara, that claimed the lives of 128 people and wounded 500, people from around the world have taken to the streets to show their solidarity, express their outrage at the terrible injustice and send a message of condolences to the victim’s families.

We’ve compiled the following images and videos from the various solidarity demonstrations held around the world.

Istanbul, Diyarbakir, London, Switzerland, Stockholm, Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Berlin, Athens, Leipzig, Paris, Washington DC, Sweeden, Cyprus, Nottingham, Woodgreen, Wien, Münster, Hannover and Nürnberg are all referenced below. More solidarity rallies and commemoration ceremonies are planned for the coming weeks.

Here at Revolution News we want to echo that message of solidarity as well and express our deepest condolences to the victim’s families. To our Turkish contributors and everyone who lost their friends and family to this tragic attack, you’re not alone.

The peace rally explosion victims were also commemorated today in Ankara.
