Controversy ahead of pro-Erdogan rally in Cologne
by Dagmar Breitenbach
The German city of Cologne is bracing for a major demonstration Sunday in support of Turkey's president, as well as anti-Erdogan protests. The rallies come in the wake of the failed military coup in Turkey.
"Why is this demonstration being permitted?" reads a headline on the Cologne police website.
That's a question quite a few citizens are asking these days with regard to a huge protest called by the Union of European-Turkish Democrats (UETD) - supporters of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan - as well as a flurry of smaller rival anti-Erdogan demonstrations, at least five in all.
