23 students detained for protesting over remote learning
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) came under fire after the president announced a decision on 11 February to shift to online learning at universities in order to allocate state-run Higher Education Credit and Hostels Institution (KYK) dormitories to earthquake victims.
Twenty-three students were detained in Kadiköy after police officers intervened in a protest against the government’s online learning decision. Demonstrations had been banned by the district governor’s office on the grounds that they could “threaten social peace”, ANKA said.
