Gezi Parkı


Some photos I took this morning in Taksim square and Gezi Park. Not a policeman in sight. The energy was positive, and it felt almost like a festival.

The global media is focused on Istanbul, where police violence seems to have died down a bit, especially in Taksim. However, police attacks on protesters continue in cities across Turkey, including Ankara, Izmir, Adana, and Rize. Please keep yourself informed on the situation in Turkey.
