REINFORCEMENTS HAVE ARRIVED! 40,000 people crossed the Bosphrous bridge into Istanbul to join the Taksim Gezi protest. Yesterday the police attacked the protesters and park killing 2-3 people and wounding 300 more. A call went out for help and solidarity and it looks like that call has been answered.
This is a statement put out by the protest movement this morning.
‘ Attention! Turkish democracy needs you!
After a series of peaceful demonstrations for preserving a recreational area in Istanbul city center which is planned to demolished for the construction of a shopping mall, Turkish police attacked the protesters violently with tear gas and water cannon, directly targeting their faces and bodies. Dozens of protesters are hospitalized and access to the park is blocked without any legal basis. Turkish media, directly controlled by the government or have business and political ties with it, refuse to cover the incidents. Press agencies also blocked the information flow.
Please share this message for the world to become aware of the police state created by AKP of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, which is often considered to be a model for other Middle Eastern countries. Turkish democracy expects your help. Thank you! ‘
Witness says ’1000s of people in Ankara closed off the protocol road, marching to protesters all night long toward the parliament building.’ Earlier reports emerged of the protests and tear-gas having spread from Istanbul’s Gezi to the capital Ankara. Protesters also witnessed at two locations in Izmir, according to social media pictures. Thousands are currently reported to be marching towards the Parliament.
