I know that this is not a medium for politics but while my friends are protesting against fascism, dealing with gas bombs in Istanbul there is nothing for me to do but spreading the word. Regardless of their belief, social class or political view people are altogether. People who have been accusing themselves by being who they are: Turks, Kurds, Armenians; Ateists, Muslim, Christians, Jews; local bread makers, tea sellers, artists, journalists even fashion editors who are normally with high heels, rich showmen or hipsters; mothers, fathers, sisters or brothers are there against suppression.
I would kindly inquire you to spread the words and the link below.
Thank you very much in advance.
All my best,
Attention! Turkish democracy needs you!
After a series of peaceful demonstrations for preserving a recreational area in Istanbul city center which is planned to demolished for the construction of a shopping mall, Turkish police attacked the protesters violently with tear gas and water cannon, directly targeting their faces and bodies. Dozens of protesters are hospitalized and access to the park is blocked without any legal basis. Turkish media, directly controlled by the government or have business and political ties with it, refuse to cover the incidents. Press agencies also blocked the information flow.
Please share this message for the world to become aware of the police state created by AKP of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, which is often considered to be a model for other Middle Eastern countries. Turkish democracy expects your help. Thank you!
