Istanbul Resisting... Everyday we are CHAPULLING!!!

Well...It's been a while that I haven't had time or will to write anything here. I was very busy ''Chapulling''. I tried to spend all my possible time with the young people resisting in the park, here in TAKSIM, ISTANBUL. I know they DON'T NEED me BUT I know that being there in the park or at the TAKSIM SQUARE is very important to show the government that we resist!!! We are all together despite all the effort they put in dividing us. Who is US? We are PEOPLE!!! We love our differences, we don't need to be all SAME, we accept different ways of living and we are the different shades of every imaginable colors. This is what makes us so special. This is what makes Turkey unique. We are in a country where east meets west and vice versa. So, we have to accept that we all are different. AND we live in a democracy. AND democracy means that every soul living here has the right of living, expressing his thoughts and will freely, and the laws are here to protect every single soul of this country. BUT what our Prime Minister does? He becomes more and more dictator! He doesn't want to have differences. He doesn't like secular state. He says that women should give birth to at least 3 children, abortion is illegal, people who drink are all alcoholic, theatre, opera are useless, trees are to be torn away to give way to another shopping mall in the middle of our city and either we are with him or we are against him! And there are lots of people who support his ideas! And YES, the resistance has started because of some trees BUT it all became something else. İt turned into the movement of democracy, freedom and salvation from a dictator! The police attacked with tear gas, pressured water against demonstrators, kicked and broke even into the apartments of the innocent people. The police sent agent orange which is a very dangerous gas onto the demontrators from helicopters. I was there, I lived some of these terrible things. My throat still hurts! And our Prime Minister calls us ÇAPULCU which means LOOTER... And I say that I am proud to be a ÇAPULCU...And the high intelligence got together in the park has already invented a new word: CHAPULLİNG!!! So every day we are CHAPULLİNG...
