We had a very intense week.
At the beginning, the President Abdullah Gul, deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinç and some others deputies’ messages about Gezi Park resistance were in a appeasing mood on the contrary to Prime Minister Erdogan’s ones which were increasing the tension, stated during his North African tour. After his return from North Africa, during his speeches/displays of power first held in the airport and then the next day in Ankara to his supporters (whom were clearly gathered together by AKP party organization) he has increased the tension instead of appeasing it.
The police attacked first Taksim then Gezi Park. The forces stormed Taksim firing teargas, using water cannon and received stones and molotov cocktails in return. Even the sites of medical emergencies were attacked with teargas bombs. As it was not enough, after being completely silent about the resistance for 24 hours, the main stream media has started to spread false information intentionally such as “people were in the mosque with their shoes on” or “ a veiled woman was attacked in Kabatas district” to support the government and to erase the good moments of solidarity and brotherhood of the resistance. Again, the false information broadcasted was attributed to all the demonstrators to discredit them which have proved us that we could not get rid of our bad tradition of discrediting.
