My foreign friends always talk about the economical stability in Turkey. Here is the price: degradation of the Democracy. It is sad to witness that my country becomes a police state day by day.

a pedestrian project?? how come Reuters doesn’t mention that the municipality and the government together destroy one of the greenest areas in the city centre, a nice park called Gezi Park in order to make a shopping mall in its place!! they hid it from the public for months and finally last month, the prime minister openly said there was going to be a shopping mall and residence in this area. so they are selling the park which is public area to the private property. and you journalists think it’s just a demonstariton for the pedestrian project? these guys protesting and facing violence from the police are defending trees and the very little green area in this huge city!

Those negative comments about turkey, desperate kemal kılıçtaroğlu adherents. :)) This protest is justified, but in our country in good condition. We do not need help. Imploring people just doing the show :)

Come to the US. Groups will pay you to protest and when you get pepper sprayed for breaking the law you can join a lawsuit and receive $30,000 of tax payer money. In fact, come over illegally and you can have a child, receive benefits and have your son or daughter go to college in CA as a resident. What a country!!! Don’t worry if opposition arises to these policies the President will unleash Federal agencies to strong arm any opposing view.

The park is going to be destructed in order to build a shopping mall there. Please correct that information.
This attitude is embarrasing. Police is supposed to protect the people, not attack them and this gets only worse. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s next project is to provide “security” to universities with police. As a student, I’m highly concerned. Looks like we will breath tear gas more than oxygen.

unfortunately our government does not have respect towards the environment and cannot tolerate against any objections…

Posted by ylmazglcan | Report as abusive

the disrespectful primeminister of Turkey says: “we want that area, we decided, and we will destruct it no matter what you say!”

Think of a primeminister that ignores his citizens’ demands, a primeminister that can easily destroy history for the sake of shopping malls!

yeah that it turkish primeminister,


the primeminister really terrifies his citizens…

he makes his police forces violently attack to his citizens…

I am protesting him!!!

People are angry and frustrated at the government’s decision to build a shopping centre at the expense of one of Istanbul’s most famous parks. But what started as a protest against the uprooting of trees is turning into a wider platform for expressing anger against government policies.

Environmentalists have been joined by gay and lesbian groups, as well as socialists, union workers, members of opposition parties from across the political landscape and even so-called “anti-capitalist Muslims”. The excessive use of force by the riot police and the insistence of the government to pursue their plans for the park have escalated tensions.

Taksim Square has political significance for the anti-government protests. As part of the reconstruction plans, the square was banned as a venue for this year’s May Day rally and any kind of demonstrations in the future; but now the government’s heavy handed approach risks turning the square into a focal point for protests against its policies.

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!
