France: ‘Human rights killer!’ - FEMEN rally against Erdogan in Paris

France, Paris
January 5, 2018 at 15:06 GMT -00:00 · Published

A group of FEMEN activists demonstrated near the Elysee Palace in Paris on Friday, to protest against Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to France on the same day.

The activists held a blackboard listing ‘Erdogan’s cannibal lunch’: a series of human rights they accuse the Turkish President of disrespecting.

In line with this theme, they painted slogans on themselves denouncing Erdogan as an ‘eater’ of journalists and LGBT rights. The activists then marched down a street, calling Erdogan a ‘human rights killer,’ before being rounded up by police.

Erdogan arrived in Paris on Friday to meet with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron. The Turkish President is expected to hold a joint press conference with Macron later, with the conflict in Syria featuring high on the agenda.

Las activistas sostuvieron una pizarra que enumeraba el "almuerzo caníbal de Erdogan”, consistente en una serie de derechos humanos que acusan al presidente turco de no respetar.

De acuerdo con esta idea, pintaron lemas en sus propios cuerpos denunciando a Erdogan como un "comedor" de periodistas y derechos LGBT. Las activistas luego marcharon por la calle, llamando a Erdogan “asesino de los derechos humanos”, antes de ser arrestadas por la policía.

Esta visita a Francia es la primera de Erdogan desde el fallido golpe de estado de julio de 2015. Se espera que mantenga una rueda de prensa conjunta con Macron más tarde, tras las reuniones que mantendrán y en las que el conflicto en Siria ocupará un lugar destacado.
