Placards written in Turkish and Italian language saying "murder US get out of the Middle East", "Anti-imperialist Camp is not alone", "Support not the occupation but the resistance" etc. also a banner saying "the anti-terror laws cannot stop the struggle of the people".
The statement was made by Emriye Demirkır. Demirkir especially mentioned the increasing imperialist agression led by US imperialism and that the attack towards the Anti-imperialist Camp is an attack against the movements supporting the resistance in Iraq and that make a clear stand point against the invasion.
During the action slogans like "Long live international solidarity", "Anti-imperialist camp is not alone"! "murder US get out of the middle east" etc were chanted. There were about 50 people participated in that protest action.
