The protesters, most of them which are students claimed to the Turkish authorities to stop the tacit support of "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" militants and not to disregard the self-organization of people who are fighting against this group, as stated by the organizations of the action. 

The activists were chanting slogans both in Ukrainian and Turkish: "Shoulder to shoulder against fascism/ Faşizme karşı omuz omuza" (a traditional Turkish leftist slogan), "Women, Life, Freedom" (slogan of the Kurdish women resistance), "Black Sea does not divide, and unite". Turkish activists also joined the sympathy strike.
