AK Party's "Respect to National Will" rallies to be held at weekend

ANKARA (AA) - Turkey's Justice and Development (AK) Party would hold rallies under the name of "Respect to National Will" at this weekend.

The first rally would begin at 5 pm on Saturday in Ankara and there would not be verbal announcements due to the university entrance exam (LYS).

The sub-theme of the rallies was to be "Let's Spoil the Big Game and Write History!"

The second rally would take place in Istanbul on Sunday at 5 pm.

The rallies would be held as a counterattack to the Gezi Park protests that began as a sit-in protest at Taksim Gezi Park against the plans to redevelop the park, but then turned into clashes after the police had fired tear gas and used water cannon.
