February 28, 2017 - Approximately 35-40 in 30 cars protested in a motorcade from Munich’s Bavariapark, eventually terminating at Geschwister-Scholl-Platz at LMU. On Monday, Turkish authorities arrested Deniz Yucel, a prominent reporter for Germany’s Die Welt, charging him with propaganda in support of a terrorist organization and incitement of the masses to commit violence. Yucel was detained on Feb. 14th after a report on emails obtained by a left-wing hacker group from energy minister and Erdogan’s son-in-law Berat Albayrak. Among the participants were the German Journalist Union (DJV) through its arm the Bavarian Journalist Union (BJV), Verdi, and the Green Party..Yucel, a dual citizen of Germany and Turkey, is the first German reporter to be held in detention in Turkey after the failed July coup. Fears and criticisms have been lobbed worldwide that Erdogan is using the coup to reduce and eliminate dissent and to consolidate his power. Merkel’s administration has been criticized as being “soft” on Erdogan due to Turkey’s crucial role in NATO, as well as their role in stemming the refugee influx to Europe. Merkel faces an election in about six months, which, in a first for her, is no longer a “sure thing”, particularly due to the entrance of Martin Schulz, a candidate from the reenergized SPD. Sigmar Gabriel of the SPD has gone further to criticize Turkey’s detention of Yucel, saying that the case displays the “glaring light” of differences between press freedom and freedom of opinion between Germany and Turkey.
