Swiss police cancel commemoration event for 102nd anniversary of Battle Of Gallipoli

Swiss police on Friday cancelled an event celebrating the 102nd anniversary of the naval victory of the Ottomans against the mighty Allied forces and commemorating thousands who lost their lives during the Gallipoli Campaign, saying it could disrupt public order.

The event named after the well-known slogan “Gallipoli is Impassable” was scheduled for Saturday in Basel city in northwest Switzerland, expecting at least 500 attendees. Turkish singers Mustafa Yıldızdoğan and Nejla Çakmakçı were also planned to perform at the event.

    Invaders, not assimilate worthy immigrants.

    A genuine commemoration of an Ottoman “naval victory”, or just an excuse for a pro-Erdogan rally?

    Good on the Swiss. They’re sensible people who have mostly avoided the European Disease.

    I cannot help but wonder if we will have to fight Erdogan like we had to fight Hitler all those years ago…
