Increased Nationalism Dominates Turkey Post Failed Coup Attempt

ISTANBUL, TURKEY - OCTOBER 21: A woman takes a selfie from a rooftop bar at a high end restaurant and popular with tourists and well to do Turks on October 21, 2016 in Istanbul, Turkey. Turkish tourism is struggling from a year of losses, constant instability has driven away western tourists forcing many tourism related businesses to close. Since the failed coup attempt on July 15, 2016 which saw 240 people killed including 173 civilians, Turkish authorities initiated a state of emergency, leading to an unprecedented crackdown on individuals and organizations with links to US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen and his organization blamed for instigating the uprising. The purge, targeting teachers, journalists, soldiers, judges, academics, police, military leaders, schools and universities has so far seen approximately 100,000 people dismissed, 70,000 detained, 32,000 arrested, 130 media outlets closed and some 15 universities shuttered. The failed coup and subsequent purge only appears to have further bolstered the president's popularity and increased nationalism across the country with July 15th having been marked as a new national holiday. Turkish flags, already prominently displaying all over have increased in numbers, as well as posters of those killed fighting the coup plotters appearing in train stations and public squares. The Bosphorus Bridge in Istanbul, which saw heavy fighting during the coup has been renamed the '15th July Martyr's Bridge'. These changes, follow a year of instability in the country with constant terrorist attacks, an economic downturn, plummeting tourism, and a refugee crisis, all contributing to Turkish society undergoing its most dramatic restructuring in decades.
