Turkish energy workers in anti-privatization march

Turkish workers marched last week from the Aegean region to the capital Ankara in a demonstration against the privatization of lignite mines and thermic power stations.

According to industriall-union.org: “In a series of joint actions over the past months, mine and energy workers in Yatagan, Yeniköy and Kemerköy thermal power plants have been campaigning against privatization of their workplaces.”
The article reported that around 200 miners and power plant workers marched and “stopped for local actions as well as press conferences”. It added, “When arriving in Ankara the marching mine and energy workers knocked on the door of the Turkish Parliament. Workers, together with leaders of Maden-Is and Tes-Is, publicly expressed their concerns and demands to the political representatives about the privatization.”
