something so brutal is happening in Istanbul, Turkey. Police is attacking innocent people violently and continuously.
It all started when Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, current Prime Minister of Turkey announced that Gezi Parkı in Taksim, Istanbul will be demolished and on its place the 94th shopping mall will be built.
Our conscientious and environment-friendly public got together at Gezi Parkı the next day and started protesting.
Well, you might get the idea that they were violent and causing trouble; but no, that’s not what happened. They grabbed their books and baskets… They sat on the grass, read their books, had picnics, … They just spend some nice time there and because of the fact that so many people where at the area, the attemps of demolishment did not occur.
Then, as if the public were causing trouble, police started attacking. -I mean why is the police even there? Were there any danger? No! Were there any angry anarchist people? No!- The attack from the police resulted with a person with an operation need and many other injured people.
Because the police jumped right in to the public’s peaceful and harmless protest, people got angry and then it all started…
Public was at the park the next day. And the police was there also. It all got so big so fast. Police attacked the public with tear gas and water cannons. Public was being attacked unjustly. And the whole country, except for Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s proponents became one! There were protests all around the country.
May 29 was the beginning of all of these… It’s June 4 now, it’s the 7th day and it’s still going on.
There are over 3000 injured people and it’s believed that the number of dead people is 3.
The whole world is supporting us except for our ‘beloved’ Prime Minister.
And what’s worse is that the media channels are being censored! In order to not to display the news!
