The day Çarşı came to town

We are all in this together.
A day late this short report... sorry

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.
