Tens of millions marched against Erdogan since he came to charge a decade ago. He's been gradually and systematically limiting Turkish people's basic constitutional rights such as freedom of speech, freedom of choice, right to information, freedom of religion and right to fair trial amongst many other basic human rights.
The number of total pending cases from Turkey at the European Court of Human Rights is 18,774! Yes, you read that right. More than 700 journalists, doctors, university professors, authors, soldiers are in jail awaiting a fair trial - put there by Erdogan and his autocrat police state for OPPOSING him.
Turkish people are never asked for their opinion on country matters, their voices are never heard and muted down, Turkish media are under strict censorship (whoever writes the truth [against the government] goes to prison, the elections always end up with scandals, election ballots are duplicated to win the cities... Turkish people are simply starved off of everything democracy can offer.
What started at Taksim Gezi Park 5 days ago was a peaceful protest trying to stop Erdogan's son-in-law's holding from destroying a historic area in the heart of Istanbul - whose fate was to become a money making machine for the islamist order of Erdogan and his supporters. The protestors camped, did yoga, read their books and refused to leave, no violence in sight, until the police used excessive force and teargassed hundreds.
Democracy died in Turkey a long time ago and today the whole nation is paying the price of the ignorant electors who voted for Erdogan who is firmly and decidedly rooted Islamism.
What started at Gezi Park in Istanbul has now become the rage of a nation with people from all walks, religions, political views. Turkish media is silent, foreign media is has barriers to accurate information. Please help us spread the word and help your Turkish friends abolish the police state, the government of Islamist, undemocratic practice.
WE WANT THE TURKISH GOVERNMENT OF ERDOGAN TO RESIGN AND BE TRIED AT THE EUROPEAN COURT OF HUMAN RIGHTS WITH HIS POLICE AND AKP PARTY MEMBERS.
