“Never Again!” Turks Demonstrate in Support of Coup Crackdown

Turks demonstrated Sunday, 28 February 2010, on the anniversary of the 1997 postmodern coup, in support of the ongoing crackdown on military officers who allegedly plotted a 2003 coup against the government.  More than 30 military officers have been charged and jailed so far.  In its modern history, Turkey suffered four military coups, on 27 May 1960, 12 March 1971, 12 September 1980, and 28 February 1997.
