"Discrimination and intolerance in Turkey
Monday, September 12, 2005
The Human Rights Agenda Association has recently issued a report on discrimination and intolerance in Turkey by underlining the rise of nationalist movements.
Human Rights Agenda Association President Orhan Kemal Cengiz, explaining the reasons for such a report, said: "As the Human Rights Agenda Association, we are deeply concerned with increasingly intolerant attitudes in Turkish society, which goes hand in hand with the new wave of nationalism. Intolerance, discrimination, anti-Semitism and even some racism have recently reached a peak, while the ambivalent feelings of Turkish society towards Europe have turned into a fear of disintegration and a loss of national identity.""
