Mayor of metropolitan municipality from MHP Huseyin Sozlu rebuked the Governor of Adana province Mustafa Buyuk, elevating his voice’ Festival cannot be banned’ after the Governor said that this festival was unlawful and it wasn’t going to be allowed.

Defending his claims that this festival is held during 12-13 December and this festival has become a traditional activity, Sozlu said that, “This activity is a civil initiative. In fact there isn’t a festival like this. They come together naturally. No any link with municipality or with public institutions. The thing which is remarkable in this issue is that there is a great participation from outside. In Adana, people have Raki by themselves. People have their own freedom. No any barriers can be put in fron of these people.”

Without hiding his support for the festival held last year, Sozlu remarked that, “We also welcomed the participants from other cities. But our permission isn’t at our stake.”

As it is remembered; the festival, held during 12-13 December near Adana’s historical and spiritual places such as Ulu Camii, Yag Camii, Ramazanoglu Kulliyesi, Buyuksaat and Kazancılar arcades, was reacted by owners of the workplaces nearby and by community. Primarily YESILAY and other NGOs’ representatives made a call to authorities for a prohibition of this kind of festivals promoting alcohol consumption.

Speaking to a local TV channel, Mayor of Adana Mustafa Buyuk underscored that alcohol ads are prohibited and any kind of activity promoting alcohol consumption is also unlawful. Alcohol festival wasn’t going to be allowed regardless of under any name.
