HPRgument: The Putsch in Turkey

Introduction

  On July 15th, factions in Turkey's military attempted a coup d'état to oust President Erdogan and his elected government. After a struggle that lasted through the night, the coup failed, leaving hundreds dead in the streets and the nation in a fragile state. Since then, President Erdogan has begun a purge of all branches of government and public life. HPR writers discuss the implications of the coup and its aftermath. Image Source: Wikimedia/Randam
