It was like a dream


“I think this photo was one of the most important pictures of the Occupy-Gezi resistance. BDP written on the flag represents the the currently party HDP, Kurdish nationalists party. The woman with Turkish flag that represents the Ataturkist. The man who made hand sign of wolf in the lower right corner that represents the Turkish nationalist, MHP party. So basically everyone was united against Tayyip Erdogan management and his party AKP government in those days. 50% population of Turkey had merged with others against AKP(it’s vote rate 50% of Turkey population) without discrimation. That’s why, it was like a dream.”

Today is 3rd anniversary of Occupy-Gezi park.

There is much to be said on it. Just it was a dream, only I can say. Last year I have posted about this. I had written more details. And I am sharing same post again. I am sorry from those who already have read same post last year. But I don’t find enough to write more on it for myself right now.

If you want read or re-read, here it is:

“When you’re angry you’re so beautiful, Turkiye!”

    • You remembered my another post which explains the wolf hand sign and Turkish culture with the title of “A song, an animal, a language and a culture,” dear Paul:) You and I had talked about Tuvan Republic via comments. And yes, in ordinary day maybe these political groups never come together, even they fight with each other. But Occupy Gezi days, those days these people had put every differences away for being against government politics. Those days are very far away anymore. Imperialism emerged out ISIS, Syria crisis, and inside of country people were killed with terror events. Everything seems to me like a history.

      And, I still don’t know which one is good my friend,
      to see the people’s resistance and being proud and feel hope, but after then everything becoming worse,
      not to see any resistance and live without knowing what the resistance is, and maybe to make a sentences with hope like that: “one day, we will resist and everything will change”…

    • Mainstream media (like CNN Turkish) was broadcasting “documentary on penguins” at those days. Yes, it seems like joke but they really did this.
      And I will look at your post right now.
