These photos show what is happening for 3 days in Turkey.
It started as an innocent action whose aim was to save the great national park in the middle of Taksim, İstanbul. The Turkish government recklessly decided to demolish this nature beauty and instead of that build a Mall.
Firstly people gathered in the Gezi Park and show their resistance by reading books, It was simple like that. But the police used brute force against that very innocent action and things got bigger and bigger as the unfair ruthless force applied by the police grows and gets uglier.
Now In Taksim, Istanbul, people are struggling for their lives because of the police who’s job supposed to be avoiding chaos. Policemen are not concidered as human beings anymore because they aim and shoot tear gass bombs right to the people’s heads which clearly says do not aim directly to the head area on its surface. There are videos on Youtube which tank like police cars drive directly to the people and kills them without pity. They closed all the ways out from Taksim and rained tear gas bombs upon people and when people run away then announced “We opened the gates It’s okay to go out now!” And when the crowd steps to the sunlight they bombed them again! They are now ripping off the civilian cameras so that there will be no proof to their ruthless actions!
This morning at 5 am, people gathered in Kadıköy, occupied the whole Bosphorus bridge and they walked from Asian continent to Europe! People will never give up because fighting for our rights fighting for what is ours is in our blood because our ATATURK has taught us that way.
From all the Turkey, all the citizens are resisting. All the people from all around Turkey are trying to support people in Taksim.
It’s like they at war but against their own people!
And because of the government, the media is completely silenced! People are dying in the streets and at TV, there is series and stupid competitions. The Newspapers were so empty this morning we couldn’t just believed in our eyes.
Because of that we used the power of social media and used mainly Twitter to take action and communicate but the government BANNED Twitter and Facebook in Turkey and many people have no access to Facebook and Twitter!
But one good thing happeden between all these demoralizing events;
We ALL got together! For years there were bad incidents about Turkey split up upon different organisations ideas. But today there were no other ideology other than being a TURKISH CITIZEN and being proud of it! We unioned with all kinds of people no matter what!
The overly oppressive government of ours banned abortion, alcohol in revious days. A bomb explosion happened in Reyhanlı in past days and according to the controlled government puppy meida there were 40 deaths but it’s being said that actually there were 180! People are raping little girls and they get no punishment for that just because they have attachments to certain people.
People of TURKEY are at the peak of irritation and with simple event like this being ended up with deaths was the last drop! We had enough! This is now more than saving the nature! This is about raising our voice against this illogical antidemoctarical government who ignores the human rights!
This resistance is about no political party. It is only about our people and our rights!
Since our media is not spreading the news, we all need your help to strengthen our cause!
We are children of ATATURK and you cannot get away with what you have done that easily! We will not forget any of these…
Please share this.
Thanks in advance.
-Turkish proud people.
