On The Occasion Of 5th April International Day of Conscience Dr. Akkan Suver Published a Message

4.4.2020 - Read : 76

We, as Turkey’s Marmara Group Foundation, celebrate United Nations International Day of Conscience with our civil society identity in these Corona Days we live in. Nowadays, where the world of humanity gives a great test, the importance of conscience emerges spontaneously. The Conscience tests us with the events we are experiencing. In other words, conscience has confronted humanity with the awareness of the good and the bad. I would like to say that on the occasion of International Day of Conscience; in the expiry of troubled days, I believe that in our world some values will either change shape or disappear. We will see if we live! We seem to be hurled towards a digital world order. We are faced with a scenario that aims to pave the way for young people who adapt to the internet and artificial intelligence. This scenario; I don't want to believe it, but it sounds like a project to eliminate our generation that can't keep up with technology! The question “What are the people over the age of sixty five doing in the world of robots?” is mind-boggling. On the other hand, it seems that the paper money will not remain. Bit coin can knock on the door at any time. We are confronted with smart alecks that suggest irrational suggestions against the printed media and talk about the virus-transferring newspaper. Education has been online, the houses have turned into a classroom and everyone is on the lookout. Shopping has stopped. Groceries and the market is preparing to serve with a remote control. There are locks on the doors of all the temples without any exemption; mosques, djemevis, churches, synagogues and other faith groups all over the world. Visits to Mecca are forbidden. Not only the Vatican itself, but even its square is closed. It is impossible to approach the Wailing Wall. The darkest and most loyal devotees of every religion and belief have been silent on this subject. With the exception of Antarctica, war is taking place in every country of every continent. The glorious international organizations are in desperation. Every country strives to end this war with its own resources. While all sectors scream from banks to factories, from shops to aircraft companies; telephone companies are experiencing their golden periods. For me, humanity is on a milestone. A virus closed us. I don't even want to think about what do we do if another virus cuts or blocks our electricity or natural gas? Hooters of digital technology, artificial intelligence, and internet are ringing. We are on the eve of a new order. We will see if we live? But let's know that our tomorrow will never look like today... With these feelings, I salute everybody in the International Day of Conscience, with our civil society identity and with my belief that we should approach the events and people more conscientiously.

It's been 23 years since we lost Alparslan Türkeş

4.4.2020 - Read : 66

We lost Alparslan Türkeş, the leader of the Turkish nationalist movement and the founder of the Nationalist Movement Party, on April 4, 1997. Alparslan Türkeş, who brought the Nationalist Movement Party to his Turkish political life, brought his party to power as a coalition partner in 1977, which he served as the Chairman of the General Assembly between 1969 and 1997, and served as Deputy Prime Minister in the 39th and 41st Governments of the Republic. In 23th year of his eternity, Dr. Akkan Suver made a statement; "Everybody knows Türkeş as a soldier because of he has served as a colonel. However, he spent twenty-two years of his eighty-years-life as soldiers and thirty-seven years as politician. The Nationalist Movement Party is his monument. While remembering him with mercy and nostalgia in the twenty-third year of death, I would like to mention here appreciation that took place in the year left behind. For this important statesman, as an example of appreciation, the TRNC State turned the house where Alparslan Türkeş was born, into a museum. I also attended the opening of the Museum together with Vice President Fuat Oktay, Tuğrul Türkeş and TRNC Prime Minister Ersin Tatar. I believe that in the coming years we will understand his value better. I remember Alparslan Türkeş with mercy and nostalgia in the 23rd year of his eternity. "
