Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan gestures as he delivers a speech on stage, on March 5, 2017 in Istanbul during a pro-government women meeting.
Some 12,000 women filled on March 5 an Istanbul arena in support of a "Yes" vote in an April referendum whether to boost Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's powers. Erdogan lashed out at Germany for blocking several rallies there ahead of an April vote in Turkey on boosting his powers as head of state, likening them to Nazi practices. "Your practices are not different from the Nazi practices of the past," Erdogan told a women's rally in Istanbul as Turks vote on April 16 whether to approve changes to the constitution expanding presidential powers.
