Fan groups from throughout Turkey held a joint democracy rally on Saturday to protest the bloody coup attempt staged by the Gülenist Terror Organization on July 15.
Led by fan groups of three large Istanbul clubs, Beşiktaş, Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray, the rally started at 9:00 p.m. local time at Tünel Square, the southern end of Istanbul's Istiklal Street.
Joined by smaller fan groups from all over the country, fan groups crossed the Istiklal Street shouting slogans.
The rally ended at famous Taksim Square, where fan groups joined with anti-coup protesters that have remained at the square since the coup attempt.
At least 246 people, including civilians and security personnel, were killed -- and nearly 2,200 injured -- during the coup attempt.
