For the past few days Taksim (Turkey) has been
calmer, more peaceful
with only the protestors walking around and making shows. But
this morning, one million police attacked the citizens in Taksim.
Taksim is now the way it was 17 days ago: a war field. fire, tear
bombs, guns and water cannons; everything.
Taksim is literally like a hospital, too many injured
people to count.
Too much smoke. Too much blood. Too much pain. The ruling
party's young supporters are given guns and sent into Taksim
to kill the people that are against the ruling party (AKP).
Most of the people in taksim are in highschool and
They're young citizens that are asking for their rights, that
are sick of the oppresive government. They do not want religious
people to rule their country, they don't want trees to be cut
so that they make a shopping center. They just do not want
They never did anything to hurt anyone until the police
Of course they hurt the police--what were they suppose to do?
The governer of Istanbul gave a speech on TV. He was
from going to taksim without saying it directly. He said things
along the lines of "Whoever goes to that place is a
terrorist" and "We will not take responsibility of your
injury if you go to Taksim" and "Anyone supporting
those terrorist will be in danger" (indirectly) etc.
The Turkish government is trying to stop people from
any of their opinions. In the media, they are not showing
anything. None of the major channels, none of the big newspapers
are showing anything. All of them are supporting the ruling
Turkey is in danger.
