A message from Gizem Yucelen Occupy Turkey



Dear Shaded Viewers

News from Gizem Yucelen on the situation in Turkey.



The protest that  started in Istanbul, spread to the other cities in Turkey. Since May 31, some two thousand protesters all over Turkey have been injured as Turkish police employ tear gas, water cannon, and excessive force to disperse them.

All we ask the authorities to do the following: 

1. Immediately end the excessive use of force against peaceful protestors;
2. Ensure the right to freedom of expression and assembly;
3. Undertake prompt, independent and impartial investigation into the excessive use of force and bring to justice law enforcement officials that have been found to have ill-treated demonstrators or other members of the public.
