"...They come to our country and protect our neighbourhoods and communities."
Turks are continuing to receive praise for the way they diffused the situation in Dalston. After the saying, "Thank Turk, It's Saturday' began to surface, English residents from Dalton and the surrounding region chose to open up a Facebook page under the same title dedicated to staging a campaign of gratitude for Dalton's Turkish shopkeepers. The Facebook page, which hosts a Turkish flag along with 3,875 friends, has been organized by Brits to inspire fellow citizens to shop in Turkish stores on Saturday.
'GET A KEBAB AND A SHAVE'
The Facebook page opened by Nick Horne states; On Monday night as the police were over-run a group of Turkish & Kurdish business owners from Dalston stepped up and chased off the nasty little rioters. They protected their businesses, our streets, our homes and most of all our community. Since then it's been a quiet week on Dalston Kingsland High St. This Saturday we plan to turn out to support the Turkish and Kurdish owned businesses in and around Dalston. So get up, grap a paper from a corner shop, go to a local cafe, get your hair done at a Turkish barber shop, go to one of our lovely Turkish supermarkets to get yoru shopping in, eat oru at a restaurant or grab a takeaway Pide or kebab then have some drinks in a Turkish bar. Come on Dalston this is payback time! Invite your neighbours, invite yoru family, invite your friends, people who live in Dalston or just love to hang out here. Everyone's welcome!"
