Women on front

Deventer, The Netherlands view map

I live in a small-to-medium-size town (pop 80,000), but it does have a large population of Turkish descent (almost 20%) and houses a Turkish consulate. That was very clear on this day, when, riding home from the town centre I saw some roadblocks and heard some shouting. It turned out to be a demonstration against PKK terror. The demonstration was, although full of Turkish national symbols, not against Kurds, but against the violence. Luckily I had put my DSLR in my bag that morning (for no reason other than "you'll never know what will happen"). I was surprised to see that the march was headed by women, because often still Turkish-Dutch women walk a meter behind their husbands. The rally was quite emotional and it was easy to capture that.
