Puuh.... dont know how to start this one. Hard times in turkey these days. Was talking to a friend of mine last night. She told me that instead of improvement things are really getting worse. The police is now allowed to use real ammonition instead of rubber bullets :( People are attacked thought protesting peacefully. Demonstrants are arrested and imprisoned. Their homes searched, computers and mobiles confiscated. Their twitter and facebook accounts delated. We were talking about the situtation there and life in genereal. I fell asleep and wanted to answer this morning, just to find out that she and all her friends accounts ( i know her brother and her cousins too...) had as well disappeared. I m worried about my friends and all the other young people in this country.
I statement of hers still strikes me as odd: I am so tired of fighting for basic democratic rights i a country that claims to be a democracy. I feel mute and powerless and day by day more hopeless.
We should not take our democratic rights for granted but be thankful each and every single day and defend them with all our heart. Pleace join any protest activities in solidarity with the turkish youth.
