A group of single men have staged a protest marching through a village in Turkey where women have refused their marriage proposals.

According to Dailymail, the women say they do not want to be trapped in the remote village of Uzumlu in southern Turkey.

In reply, the men have gone ahead to stage a protest in the village. The men say the women are being unreasonable and a video on website shows them marching through the village with banners urging the ladies to accept village life.

Speaking on the matter, the mayor Mustafa Bashbilan told the Al Arabiya website there were 25 single men, aged between 25 and 45, in the village.

But the last wedding in the village was nine years ago and since then its population has fallen alarmingly, from 400 to 233.

He said most of the town’s young women had chosen to move to cities like Istanbul, Ankara and Antalya but the men stayed behind to farm land which has been in their families' possession for centuries.

Mr Bashbilan said the town was not poor but the unhappiness of the men was becoming a social problem.

One of the men's banners called on Turkey's president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan to help.
