Upon the state-run Anadolu Agency (AA) announcing the nonofficial results of the referendum on the Constitutional Amendment Draft, residents in various districts of İstanbul have protested the results by banging pots and pans.
This type of protests which originally started against the police violence during Gezi Resistance in 2013 took place yesterday (April 16) in many districts such as Kadıköy, Beşiktaş and Çukurcuma in İstanbul.
The protesters shared on their social media accounts what had been going on in their neighbourhoods as follows:
