Anti-China protests continued across Turkey for a second day Thursday, with crowds gathering in public places to demand China stop what marchers perceive to be discrimination against its Muslim population, SIA informs citing the AA.
Demonstrations in the cities of Ordu, Giresun, Rize, Corum, Bayburt, Sinop, Karaman and Isparta -- and six more -- added to the 26 locations where protests had taken place overnight.
At most venues -- mostly prominent public squares -- the diatribe was strong and the presence predominantly loud and male. There, leaders claimed unsavory acts had been carried out by China against its Turkic Uighur population.
Women and children also took part. In places such as the eastern city of Erzurum they stood in the midday sun holding round placards in the Turkish red and Uighur sky blue.
