"I have spent the last few days interviewing people in Istanbul’s Gezi Park
protests as well as hanging out in the park, observing, chatting informally
with everyone ranging from journalists to visitors to the park and occasionally
getting massively tear gassed. My lungs continue to burn as I type this
morning."

Cheers,

Current update:  “Come, Come, Whoever You Are.” As a Pluralist Movement Emerges
from Gezi Park in Turkey
http://technosociology.org/?p=1421

"In Gezi, one thing that struck me and that I’ve been tweeting about, and that
came up in many of the 100+ interviews I conducted with the participants was
the spirit of tolerance and diversity. Gezi protests participation included
people ranging from nationalist/traditional Kemalists to Kurdish political
parties, from the  ”internet generation” youth (as they are referred to here)
to feminists, from “revolutionary muslims” to many ordinary citizens who do not
fit into any of these categories."

Share and enjoy,
