Anti-Turkey Posters in Local Area
I noticed it this morning....a number of them plastered around the shopping district. Coming from pro-Kurd functions in Mainz (I assume).
It slams the Turk stance on Kurds and how it's not really a vacation zone but a war zone.
Going by the first eight months of 2015.....there were 3.75 million Germans who came to Turkey for a vacation. Because of poor economics in Russia....there were fewer tourists coming in 2015 from there, and the Turks are proactive in keeping the German tourist trend going in a positive direction.
If just 10-percent of Germans cancelled out or declined on the Turkish vacations.....it'd be a problem and send some bad signals.
As for the posters? I noticed three hours later that some had been removed and some folks didn't feel happy about the slam on Turks.
