Gezi Park Resistance Article Series – No. 1

“Imagine … the dawn of the 13th day of the occupation … you’re tired, not sleeping or eating too great … you’ve been harassed, maybe tear gassed and beaten. Bloomberg[1] is threatening to call in the National Guard. … But you are sitting tight because much of the nation is cheering you on … Al Jazeera and the BBC are beaming your struggle to a captivated world and the tension is building for Obama … It feels much like it did in Tahrir Square moments before Mubarak caved. You’ve never felt so alive!” (Adbusters, 2011)

    Son günlerde yasanan parlemanto disi sivil itaatsizlik hareketidir. Son on yildir iktidar, cogunlugun oy vermeyen azinliga karsi tahakkumu seklinde icraatlarda bulunmustur.Büyük kitlelerin kisilik haklari,onuru kirilmis,hakaretlere ugramistir. Son hareketler onurunu geri isteme hareketi olarak ortaya cikmistir.Kitleler böylelikle korku zincirini kirmis olup,baska ve degisik konularda bundan sonra tekrar sahneye cikacaktir. Bir sonra muhtemelen ekonomik istekle sokaga cikacaktir.
