Strike called to back Turkey protests

An alliance of Turkish unions has called for a two-day strike to protest against a crackdown on anti-government protests over the last four days.

The Public Workers Unions Confederation (KESK) said: “The state terror implemented against mass protests across the country … has shown once again the enmity to democracy of the AKP government.”

The confederation, which has an estimated 240,000 members in 11 unions, said it would hold a two-day strike from Tuesday.

Mass protests have continued against the Islamic-rooted government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. At least two people have died in the demonstrations.
