cologne - Ten thousand people have gathered in Cologne for a mass of support to the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The reason for the large demonstration is the failed coup of July 15 in Turkey. The protest is far from undisputed. Several counter-demonstrations have been announced, including by right-wing extremists. The police put more than 2,700 officers to keep the peace.

The organization of the demonstration, which previously said 30 000 participants expected, wild Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan publicly show address via video link. The German Constitutional Court, however, held out Saturday as a stop to it. The judges were concerned that the speech could be detrimental to public order. This was another sore leg against Turkey. Minister for EU Affairs Omer Celik tweeted Sunday that the decision of the court is contrary to the freedom of expression and democratic values.
