What’s going on in Turkey?, by Tomislav Georgiev


Our good friend and great photographer Tomy was in Istanbul during the riots. Here is his story. It started at Geza Park, young people demonstrate against new shopping mall , but this isn’t about trees at all. It is about the secular bloc in Turkey making a final anarchic stand against what they hate most in this world – their nation coming closer to Islam once more. Demonstration became violent with police brutality as a catalyst resulted with more than 1,700 people were reportedly detained and hundreds were injured. At least two people were killed.

The story continues.
