Focal point or family district? The two favorites


The conflict
Different forces recently met in Favorites. Nationalist Turks and sympathizers of the right-wing extremist movement of the “Gray Wolves” stand on the violent side. There are also increasing numbers of supporters of the Turkish ruling party AKP among the rioters. Left-wing Kurdish and Turkish demonstrators, as well as supporters of anti-fascist movements form the opposite side. Kurds and left-wing Turkish-born democrats are an enemy of Turkish nationalists, and they are also hostile to the Gray Wolves
