La police turque a tiré jeudi des gaz lacrymogènes pour disperser une foule de 20 000 manifestants qui dénonçaient à Izmir la négligence du gouvernement islamo-conservateur dans la tragédie minière ayant fait au moins 282 morts, a rapporté l'agence de presse Dogan.

Kani Beko, le président d'un des principaux syndicat ouvrier du pays, le DISK, a été hospitalisé après une charge policière, précise l'agence.

Quatre syndicats ont décrété pour jeudi une journée de grève à travers le pays en hommage aux mineurs tués dans le drame dans la mine de charbon de Soma, située à une centaine de km au nord-est d'Izmir.

Le premier ministre islamo-conservateur Recep Tayyip Erdogan a rejeté toute responsabilité de son gouvernement dans cette catastrophe industrielle, mais l'opposition et certains syndicats mettent en cause sa négligence et son indifférence envers les travailleurs en général.

Plusieurs milliers de personnes se sont rassemblées jeudi en fin de matinée à Istanbul et Ankara à l'appel des syndicats.
