Reactions continue for the removal of the "White Wagon", which was used by the great leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk on his domestic trips from 1926 to 1937 and displayed in the open area in front of İzmir Alsancak Station, by TCDD at midnight. Members of the Atatürkist Thought Association (ADD) protested in front of the removed "White Wagon". CHP Izmir MPs, ADD members and citizens participated in the action.
According to the news of Mehmet İnmez from Cumhuriyet; Speaking at the protest, which was heavily attended by citizens, Doğan Aygen, Head of Coordination of İzmir Branches, said, “They mock our nation by removing the wagon by saying that we are supposedly caring. We, as Kemalists, will not allow our Ata's wagon to be removed and we want it to be put back. They feel a grudge against our national holidays, April 23, May 19, August 30, September 9 and October 29, and they ban them at every opportunity. We have to put an end to this bad trend. "
CHP İzmir Deputy Tacettin Bayır said that it would never be possible for them to erase the love of Atatürk from the hearts of 80 million citizens. Bayır said, “He is the great leader of both our generations and the generations after us. "They can never take away our love for Ataturk from our hearts."
