Mayor of Denizli Metropolitan Municipality Osman Zolan issued a message on the occasion of May 19, Atatürk Commemoration, Youth and Sports Day. Stating that May 19, 1919, was the symbol of the pre-existence of the Turkish nation, Mayor Osman Zolan said, ''Our nation, which is waiting to give its lives to its homeland in every corner of our country, has evolved into a totality of movement as Atatürk moved to Samsun. Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, with this epic struggle that he started, has determined the direction of the National Struggle and has reshaped the history of the world, preferring to be martyred instead of living in captivity, acting in national unity and togetherness, revealed the definition of being the only force against the enemy, and showed to the whole world that he could not live in captivity. ''
 
Striking that Denizli is the first city to take part in this struggle with the fatwa of Mufti Ahmet Hulusi Efendi, Mayor Zolan said, ''Dear young people, this is the primary duty of all of us to live in this homeland of freedom which is free of our ancestors. Our youth should always be dependent on national and spiritual values, hardworking, honest and open to innovations. Because youth means future. I commemorate all of our heroes who lost their lives in the national struggle, especially Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, with these feelings and thoughts, with respect, gratitude and mercy to all the martyrs and veterans who shed their blood for our homeland and I congratulate our youth on May 19, Atatürk Commemoration and Youth and Sports Day.
