Turkish Spring: The People Revolt

turkish spring

After two days of protest about the urban gentrification of Gezi Park (the biggest park in Taksim where green areas are continually being destroyed), people got fed up with police brutality and violence. —- Especially the silence of the media, increasing attacks of government on the freedom of individuals, imperial aims of the state trying to take advantage of the Syrian situation have expended the recent conflict in riots. —- The clashes continued all day and night yesterday. At least seven civilians were murdered by the police attacks, hundreds were injured, hundreds are in custody where they are beaten up and some tortured. —- All temples of capitalism had to close down in Taksim. There is a great deal of solidarity on the streets, many small shops and homes, universities; all pharmacies opened their doors to protesters.

Turkish Chamber of Architects and Engineers Office is turned into a hospital with volunteer doctors and nurses. And they are treating wounded protesters.
