thanks for that summary.....I had no idea...Turkey sounds like a great cohesive bunch of citizens...
after reading what you posted about the leader, it's clear now...."YOU GUYS HAVE AN OBAMA"
After you are done there can we fly your peiople over here to the U.S. to do a quick "clean-up"??

Thank you for all your interest and support.

This below link is only one page long, and it will give you the entire story without any censorship. It's very vital that the world knows exactly what's going on here.

THANK YOU MRuss for bringing us the live feed (as it were) from the actual action zone! If I understand properly you are leading a group of tourists and must be very careful in what you do, and what you record. Please be very careful and never risk yourself or those who have been entrusted to you.


This is what ATS lives for.

No, not an anti-capitalist theme exactly.

Our guide says that the Prime Minister is becoming authoritarian--or other choice words. He is trying to control the populace. He is regulating the sale of alcohol, banning kissing on subways, choosing the lipstick color for airline attendents, tearing down green space for more mosques, malls, etc. increasingly becoming less secular, supporting Syria, imprisoning journalists and using force for peaceful demonstrations. The government is also highly corrupt.

The protesters want the Prime Minister to step down. They favor separation of religion and state and don't feel they can move backwards in time. They don't want to be an Islamic state.

The Turks embrace western materialism. This is a conservative country in many ways, but they don't want to move back several centuries and they feel their Prime Minister is headed that way.

This is according to our Turkish guide.


That's what happens when you put in office a regime that wants to become islamic and put Sharia Law back on the table. What did they expect?

Yes there are many reasons for this, the biggest being that the dictator erdogan is trying to destroy our Turkish identity and divide us, he has gone against Ataturk's wishes and turned against all of Turkeys neighbors for the sake of the zionists and this is something us Turks will not tolerate. In truth the unrest in Turkey started in Hatay a few weeks ago when over 50 people were killed as a result of erdogans support for the salafi terrorists in Syria, that was the spark which woke Turks up. The Turkish people simply want to be bağımsız which means independent, but at the moment we are not because our government is the puppet of tptb.

Below is a video from a Iranian news agency explaining the situation very accurately, most Turks will agree, it is in English but maybe you can find it in Farsi.

So you think people shouldn't protest because they might get shot?


Are you trying to interpret my words ?

I meant , going to protest in such countries is dangerous.

But I think now I know why people are protesting in Turkey.

Thanks to Turk members.

So can you predict how long it will take to get him out of power? Because it is not like Lybia, Egypt, or Syria do you believe others in power will escort him out to appease the people? Thank you so much for explaining as you did. It's far better to be educated this way than media so very happy you joined.


Not anytime soon. The majority of the people supports him .

This is neither all Middle East nor is Turkey a member of the EU. It sometimes hurts to read such comments without any backgound knowledge.

Don't be bothered because we didn't know anything when we were born.

WE learned.

If you want a protest, or a cause to succeed, you need to seperate yourselves from politics and this anonymous bull#.

The "Occupy" tag is tarnished, and failed in London because it was associated with the loony left and hand wringing communists. I know this site is full of them too, but I cant believe you havent seen this.

I envy you. This is the kind of holiday I would love to have, seeing history unfolding, the Human drama of it, the energy and the excitement. I would probably be down there with them dancing a traditional dance!


I agree with you too, the corrupt government there will not allow this to continue for much longer, and I fear when they do move in it will be without restraint. A part of me hopes that people flee and save themselves, then reconvene and start again. I think there's a slight myth in the idea of holding a location hostage like this, it doesn't tend to go well.

I'm sure YouTube are censoring this protest. I would have thought searches would be brimming with recent videos.
Managed to find this, from yesterday....

Here is a video direct from Istanbul which I copied from the French version of the Huff Post.

There is no mention of what is happening there now on the American Huffington Post.

Huff Post France

Things are starting to get rough again as several of you predicted.
