More original music from Turkey – music is food for the soul (and hopefully common sense)

A traditional song – with surtitles – inspired by women clanging pots and pans in protests:

This one is also a traditional song – arranged in polyphonic form years ago and now with new lyrics. So here are the video and the lyrics:

Are you a looter or an activist?

Are you a looter or an activist?

The gas mask looks like vermillion and the tear gas is like honey.

My own TOMA’s (Water Canons) are spraying water  directly at me.

Don’t worry!  A solution will always be found, the people (the public)  are up and

standing and they are on their way to Taksim and are on the  barricades.

Are you a looter or an activist?

Gas masks are of different types and styles

I am marching for Taksim.  Don’t be lazy and come along for your own rights.

Don’t worry a solution will always be found.

Right now the people are up and standing (for their rights).

They are on their way to Taksim and on the barricates.

Are you a looter or an activist?

Gezi Park is at your age.

These are pots, spoons and forks.

Don’t worry there is always a solution to find.

The people(the public) are up and standing

And they are on their way to Taksim and on the barricades.

Are you a looter or an activist?
