Sit-down protest for the missing

Relatives of missing people held a sit-down protest during the last day of the May 17-31 International Week for the Missing.

Gathering in Istanbul's Galatasaray Square, relatives of the missing unfurled banners reading, “Don't forget the missing” and carried photos of their missing loved ones. International Committee Against Disappearances (ICAD) spokeswoman Macide Ocak said, “We will follow this until the criminals are tried and punished.”

The five-minute sit-down protest ended after Ocak's speech.
