I am worried about what tonight will bring.
PM is returning. Crowds are gathering around Ataturk Airport in Istanbul chanting slogans that can be loosely translated as ‘minority know your place’ ‘hands that rise against the police be broken’ and ‘Tayyip we’ll die for you’…
In the meantime, there are news from Gazi, Ankara that violence is escalating and that one person may be brain-dead from being hit by a tear gas canister.
I’ve never seen protesters chanting ‘we’ll die for you’…protesters are out so that people in Turkey don’t have to die for anyone any more….
