Right now, in Turkey - PLEASE READ -

Hello followers - 

I realize that many of your are not from Turkey or have any real interest in the country of Turkey or its government, but some of you are Turkish and I want to draw everyone’s attention to the incredibly important/sad happenings in Istanbul right now. The short version is, there was a peaceful protest happening today in Taksim square (which is like the Times Square of Istanbul, okay, LOTS of people all the time) and police broke out with tear gas and other things. A lot of people has been injured and the general consensus is that PM Erdogan has gone way too far in crushing democratic processes in the country and trying to have his own way without listening to anyone - but that is a very simplified explanation.

Please share because this is not just a political issue, it is a human rights issue that everyone should be aware of. Personally, I really hope Erdogan gets slammed for this.
