Tens of thousands of people have shown their solidarity with the democracy movement in Turkey and gathered for a solidarity rally in Cologne, Germany. The rally was organized by the Alevi community and attracted so many people that a planned march through the city had to be cancelled, because there would not have been enough space. The exact number of participants is not yet known, but it is estimated to be between 80 and 100 thousand. The main aim of this rally obviously was to express solidarity with the people struggling in Turkey, with the detained and imprisoned and with the dead. However, the people also expressed their solidarity with the protesters in Brazil and all over the world to show international solidarity.
