Turkey - SMART

On Saturday, dozens of Syrian and Turkish protesters demonstrated in front of the Russian consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on the seventh anniversary of the Syrian revolution. The protesters condemned the massacres in Eastern Ghouta, Damascus.

The protesters called on all countries to boycott the FIFA World Cup, which will be hosted by Russia in June 2018. The boycott aims to put pressure on Russia to stop bombing Ghouta and permit food and medical aid to enter Ghouta. 

The Avaaz organization launched a campaign to boycott the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which will be hosted by Russia in June this year. The campaign wishes to boycott Russia for the "hell" the country has brought upon Syria by supporting the Syrian government in bombing the cities, towns and villages of Syria.

Saleh al-Saleh, a political activist, stated that the protest in front of the Russian consulate is to "condemn and denounce the unacceptable crimes against our people in Ghouta."

On Mar. 7, 2018, dozens of Syrian and Turkish protesters demonstrated near the Russian consulate in Galatasaray square, Istanbul, in support of Eastern Ghouta, Damascus. The protest on Mar. 7 also called to boycott of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.  

On Feb. 18, the loyalist forces and their militias, backed up by Russia, launched a military operation on Eastern Ghouta, killing and injuring thousands of civilians and destroying infrastructure. The military operation continues despite the United Nations Security Council resolution 2401, which calls for a 30-day ceasefire in Syria and the lifting of the siege on Ghouta.
