    What is the feeling of the people?
    Your neighbours?
    Is the support for erdogan strong?
    People are against the coup whether they are supporting Erdogan or not. We all know coup is not good for both secularist and Islamist idologies, people of all different views are teaming up.

    As I understand it, Erdogan has committed a number of human rights abuses and is a dictator. What is it exactly that he's done? Sorry, I'm just not at all knowledgeable about the situation in Turkey.

    He did violate the constitution many times and did many bad stuff. But the coup is still bad, he should be taken down by vote. Coup was not organized by the military, it is organized by a fraction in military. Military is ordering coup military to step down.

    Is Turkey a normal democratic country like the UK or are the elections rigged? Because surely if the elections were fair there is no justification for a coup.

    There are rigs in the elections, but majority of votes are legit. There can be no justification for coup unless goverment starts massacres and/or sells out the country soil to other political bodies.
