    Turkish Opposition Marches to Istanbul

    Kemal Kilicdaroglu, leader of the opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) in Turkey, has often been criticized for being an ineffective leader.

    Now, others are gathering around him in the 450-kilometer walk from the capital, Ankara, to Istanbul. The 68-year-old is leading a march against the rule of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

    The so-called "Justice March" is a response to a crackdown that began after last July's failed coup attempt. The marchers say they are trying to reach across political divisions to bring attention to the thousands of people who have been jailed and lost jobs in the crackdown.

    The marchers wear shirts and carry signs with the word "Adalet.” It is the Turkish word for justice.

    Zeynep Altiok is a CHP deputy leader. She claimed that many people have been arrested, including journalists and academics.

    "The judiciary system is also very much under pressure. So all this together, from different levels of society, everybody feels it for them right now. Everybody feels for justice, everybody seeks for justice," she said.

    Erdogan's response

    President Erdogan says the marchers are not loyal to Turkey. He suggested that they may work with terror groups.

    "You are launching a march for terrorists and for their supporters," Erdogan said. "You have never thought about marching against terrorist groups, you can convince no one that your aim is justice."

    Erdogan also suggested that the march could be a second coup attempt against him.

    Political divisions along the march

    Political divisions will likely grow deeper as more people join the march.

    Erdogan supporters played his campaign song and displayed support with a four-finger sign along the march.

    Others lined up to applaud the opposition marchers as passing cars and trucks sounded their horns in support.

    “They wave at us, they kiss us and wish us the best, they hug us with love, they get tears in their eyes. They say 'May God help you,” a marcher said.

    Kilicdaroglu worries about such divisions, but insists that the marchers are committed to peaceful resistance. "We have never been and we will never be in favor of violence," he said.

    The march is scheduled to arrive in Istanbul on Sunday.
