"Recent protests and increasing authoritarian actions taken by Prime Minister Erdogan’s government have observers questioning Turkey’s current political leadership. The loss of over 300 miners in the country's biggest industrial disaster and the recent corruption allegations ... adds fuel to existing tensions between the government and Turkey's citizens. Turkish political commentator and author Mustafa Akyol will discuss recent developments in Turkey and explain what they mean for the broader Muslim world."
Tickets are $15 for non-members. Event starts at 7:00 pm, let's meet at 6:45 in the lobby. I've bought my ticket already.
I'll be at La Boulange at 222 Sutter St for a quick supper at 6pm, if anyone wants to join me. Look for a meetup nametag on the table.
