What is Hap­pen­ning in Istan­bul? | İnsan­lik Hali

Tyrkisk Peber

Police kept cha­sing people and spraying them with pep­per spray to an extent that stray dogs and cats were poi­so­ned and died by it.

Schools, hospi­tals and even 5 star hotels aro­und Tak­sim Square ope­ned their doors to the inju­red. Doctors fil­led the clas­s­rooms and hotel rooms to provide first aid. Some police offi­cers refu­sed to spray inno­cent people with tear gas and quit their jobs.

Aro­und the square they pla­ced jam­mers to pre­vent inter­net con­nection and 3g net­works were blo­cked. Resi­dents and busi­nes­ses in the area provi­ded free wire­less net­work for the people on the stre­ets. Restau­rants offe­red food and water for free.

People in Ankara and İzmir gat­he­red on the stre­ets to sup­port the resi­stance in Istanbul.

Main­stream media kept showing Miss Tur­key and “the stran­gest cat of the world”.
