The day Çarşı came to town
|We are all in this together.|
Things have been a bit quiet in Istanbul. I admit Gazi has been kicking off but the general air around Gezi Park has been one of love and happiness.
It hasn't exactly been like that in Ankara and so a few members the Besiktas Çarşı group, many of whom were involved in the fiercest fighting in Istanbul in the first days of the protests, made a visit to Ankara.
Everyone, male, female, Gencler, Ankaragucu, everyone applauded them as they made their way up Tunalı Hilmi in the pouring rain to Kugulu Park.
With these protests, I have never seen such solidarity.
