Thousands of women gathered in the Kadıköy district of Istanbul, Turkey to celebrate International Women’s Day.
Chanting the slogan “We will win our freedom” women marched through Iskele Square. Despite the police blockade, they were able to enter the meeting area.
After the meeting ended, police attacked Kurdish LGBTI+ activists and detained them for carrying LGBTI+ flags in the meeting area. Many women protested the police and chanted slogans in support of the trans women who were detained.
