    Watch the guy in the white shirt... who is this guy?

    These guys cowards type the white shirt of the video, after the game turn, are the first to cry that they were only doing their job and who has rights to be respected.
    There is no excuse for doing so, he seems to have pleasure.
    I know cops here in Brazil like this guy, they believe that the laws are for others, do not apply to them.
    I hope he's prepared for when your karma knock on your door.
    With karma no dialogue, nor crying, nor leaves for later. It is now, and just.
    Peace and perseverance.

    I have difficulties believing that all this is just an alcohol-matter.

    I do hope people will come to their senses soon...which should not be all too difficult, looking at neighbouring countries.

    Hi All,

    I live in Turkey and have to say that this is not about alcohol or a park at all. People want the PM to resign because they don't want to be ruled by a dictator. He could have stopped all this from happening, but his comments about the park etc just fueled the people more and all this happened. He won't back down. The media is deaf (and I mean really deaf, while all this is going on only 2 channels went live, unbelievable!!!). Anyway we all hope this stops before it gets really worse...

    Social media and opposition to blame for protests, says Turkish PM

    Yes, i.m.o. the controllers of this Simcity made an error in judgement by allowing this platform to flourish. I for one would be happy if they shut down FB. They apparently 'own' my photos, which I'm not happy about.... (although deleted, they are not 'gone')


    Having not read all the posts in this thread I am not sure if anyone posted a link to this blogger. What is happening in Istanbul

    This is not about alcohol... yes they just rushed through a bill about 2 weeks ago banning the sale of alcohol after 10pm... but that is one in many!
    See the video below for a brief description made by a very brave man who has risked his safety by creating and posting this explanation... (which isnt complete by no means, he has missed out some things but I can only assume he didnt speak of them out of fear)



    Disturbing, but who'll take over then? What will come from these riots? Usually calls for democracy are answered by very wrong people. So, I hope these people have a good plan.

    This showed up on my FaceBook feed...I do not have the original source, however I do like the message...

    Quote Heart warming story on Turkish developments....

    Gülay Ateş
    Dear friends… I want to thank you most of all for your support and comfort.
    We have a little over 80 million citizens here in the republic of Turkey… and something wonderful is happening here. Millions have not slept over the past 36 hours; we are all really on the streets. Large cities, small cities, suburbs are full of people who know how they will be treated. Jung and old people, professors, actors, writers, workers all know that they will be beaten bloody, be bombarded with teargas and agent-orange. This is not stopping anyone from helping those in need.

    This was not planned, we did not organize this. We were all siting in our living rooms and saw in Halk TV and read on Twitter what was being done to peaceful demonstrators.

    None of us thought long about this, we simply put on our shoes and ran out to help. Not even in my years as a student, have I ever taken part in a demonstration. But this is so natural that you don’t think of yourself and your own security any longer. It is so strange to experience this sort of thing… ALL ARE ONE…

    Dear friends, I and many millions of people are experiencing this here and now and I tell you it feels absolutely wonderful… The POWER and ONENESS… and it is all so simple and it all went so fast… only when it has been awakened, do you realize, that the power was there all along and that we simply forgot it… WAKE UP… what is happening today here will be happening tomorrow in your country, the game is the same… what is fascinating me and probably baffling the powers that were – is that their system is as easy to bring down like a house of cards when you just stand as one.
    In Love
