Confederation of Turkish Trade Unions (TURK-IS) President Ergun Atalay
Wishing Allah’s mercy upon citizens and soldiers who lost their lives during Operation Peace Spring, Atalay mentioned the inadequacy of 2 million people organized in the area with 17 million employees. Reminding that they frequently made statements about not building buildings on arable lands related to the environment, Atalay said, “We are 32nd among 162 countries in terms of water scarcity. Our unions have been struggling with starch-based sugar and corn syrup for many years. But they make them pay for doing this. There are giant companies of the world behind them."
