Boycott Turkey campaign visits Nordic Travel Fair in Helsinki
The Fair is the biggest of its kind in Northern Europe with more than 60 000 visitors during the weekend.
On Saturday and Sunday several hundred leaflets of Boycott Turkey campaign were distributed during the Nordic Travel Fair in Helsinki, Finland. The Fair is the biggest of its kind in Northern Europe with more than 60 000 visitors during the weekend. The Fair hosted several different stands, including Turkish Airlines, promoting holidays in Turkey.
While people were listening to a promotion speech about buying a holiday home from Turkey, they were handed leaflets titled ”Holiday in Turkey”. What seemed like a regular travel brochure, was instead a Boycott Turkey flyer that reminded people about the war in North-East Syria, repression of Kurdish people in Turkey, journalists in Turkish prisons and about human rights situation in Turkey in general. Leaflets were handed also next to the area where Turkey promotion stands were situated, and outside of the fair hall.
