 Four Seasons on Great Palace 

posted by istanbul 16 years ago

The initiative aktivistanbul is soliciting signatures to protest a construction project in Istanbul's historical peninsula. The Four Seasons hotel chain is building a 60-room extension to its Sultanahmet location, on top of a prime archaeological site (e.g. location of the Roman-Byzantine Great Palace). The initiative is now calling for independent excavations to be conducted, and the irreversible destruction to be immediately stopped. More than 2,500 people have already signed here. For those not reading Turkish, the form reads: "Name, Surname"; "Occupation"; "Date of Birth"; "city" (Yurtdisi refers to anything outside Turkey), and email. "Imzala" means "sign". Your name, profession, and place will be visible to other visitors. The petition will be sent to the presidency of the parliament.
