    From Edirne in the northwest Thracian regions to Hakkari in the southeast, Turkey yesterday rose up, despite a countrywide referendum on the constitution, to protest against the recent and dramatic spike in PKK terror seen near the Iraqi borders.

    With Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's live speech yesterday urging constraint and calm amongst Turkish citizens, crowds gathered in cities across Turkey did remain unprovoked, despite a few small incidents. In one such incident, a large group of protestors in Bursa removed the sign from a building housing local Democratic Society (DTP) Party offices, the DTP being the largely Kurdish backed political group with representation in the Turkish Parliament. A military officer present at the Bursa protest calmed down crowds, telling them "The military martyrs are our sons, but these (DTP supporters) are our citizens."
