with her sight-impaired father. Although she has complained many

sidewalk outside her house herself. Kılıç painted the message
"this is a sidewalk!" on the cars in black paint.

and handicapped people from using them. I am absolutely
convinced that I have done the right thing."
Şirinevler is a neighborhood in Bahçelievler district
