International press is watching Taksim so there is no police there at the moment. Therefore, it looks as if resistance has calmed down. In fact, in Ankara there is still violence much bigger than Istanbul: tear gas thrown into the apartment blocks, people beaten up, taken into custody and plastic bullets…here violence and torture is continuing with increasing intensity.
Just like we did at the beginning when first events were unfolding, we need to use social media to draw the attention to Ankara. My request from you is to draw the attention to Ankara to bring the resistance here to a human level.
We want to be able to express our opinions without running away, without fear and hiding. Because now everywhere is Kizilay, everywhere is resistance.
