Turkish Popular and Civil Activities Organize March in Antioch to Support Syria.

-- Turkish popular and civil activities on Sunday organized a march in the city of Antioch to show solidarity with Syria and support for President Bashar al-Assad, with around 10,000 people challenging the authorities who tried to prevent the march.

Participants voiced rejection of any foreign interference in Syria's affairs, denouncing the policies of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan which conspire with the west against Syria.

The participants marched in the city carrying Syrian flags and pictures of President al-Assad, voicing outrage over the Turkish government's policies regarding Syria and decrying interferences in the region.

They called on their government to not participate in the plots against the region and Syria, lifting banners saying "Syria will not become like Iraq and Libya." The Turkish government attempted to prevent this march, demanding that leftist and opposition parties refrain from organizing such activities, but the participants were determined to send a message to their government that they will not allow Turkey to become a platform for conspiring against Syria.
