Van spreads US awareness of defeated coup in Turkey

A van made its way through Manhattan Wednesday providing the droves of passersby a window into Turkey's defeated July 15 coup attempt ahead of its three-year anniversary next week.


The campaign was organized by the Turkish American National Steering Committee (TASC), with the organization fitting large screens on the sides of the van and placing images about the attempt for bystanders in Times Square to see.


The screens also aired a trailer from a documentary called "The Network", which was prepared by Turkish international news channel TRT World in conjunction with the Turkish Presidential Communications Director's office.
