Arzu Geybullayeva, Global Voices, The new normal after Turkey’s earthquake: A TV host and comedian gives his take, 13 Mar 2023

“The state is widely thought to have mishandled the earthquake response, as delayed search and rescue operations, unorganized aid campaigns, lack of state preparedness or emergency measures, missing donations, and more prolonged people’s suffering led to thousands of unnecessary deaths. No officials have apologized or resigned thus far, leading to a massive public outcry. A little over one month since the earthquake struck ten provinces, anger against the state continues to churn.”
