Who is in Taksim Solidarity (Taksim Dayanisma) Group

The full list in Turkish with links to websites, where these are available: http://taksimdayanisma.org/bilesenler?lang=en

Here is the English names, official names of some of the organisations may be different in English. This is our translation to show that the group is comprised of professional associations, trade unions, neighbourhood and stakeholder NGOs and some political parties. Or ‘marginal groups’ in the words of PM Erdogan.

We are also wondering: If there was a true participatory decision making in Turkey, wouldn’t the professional organisations in the list much rather be in meeting rooms than on the streets?
