Erol Yildiz  is carrying out a hunger strike in front of the parliament building. His complaint is that although his son, Cemal finished university with a good honours degree he is unemployed. His son’s diplomas are on display where he is protesting.

Yildiz told reporters that his son Cemal needed to work to support his family but could not find work because vacancies were filled by those with political connections. Cemal had been given a job at the UBP Data Processing Center but had quit after not being paid any salary for a year
