In Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will be sworn in today for another 5-year term as president, with sweeping new powers. Ahead of his swearing-in, his government fired another 18,000 state workers as part of a far-reaching crackdown on civil society following the failed military coup two years ago. In total, Erdogan’s government has fired nearly 150,000 people and arrested tens of thousands of human rights activists, lawyers, academics, journalists, political dissidents and Kurds.
