In the village of İnköy in Kütahya province, local women demonstrated
against the construction of an archeological museum proposed to be
built on the fields where they graze their livestock. The women, armed
with pitchforks, axes and sickles, blocked the intercity road that runs
between Kütahya and Eskişehir.
About 500 villagers came to the field with their tractors and animals
to demonstrate against the museum project. After the highway was
blocked, Kütahya Governor Ahmet Hamdi Nayir and Mayor Kamil
Saraçoğlu arrived at the scene and agreed with the protestors to enage
in a dialogue about the matter, ending the demonstration.
