Here's an eyewitness diary of the events in Turkey. My friends there have given me some information, but this is a more comprehensive view than anything I've received directly. I don't know the author, but I know the area she writes of, and it sounds like she knows what she's talking about.
TOPICS: History; Travel
KEYWORDS: claireberlinski; gezi; protests; taksim; turkey
That was one hell of a report. I thank you, JfromS for posting. How did you find this?
I suggest reading this - it will take about 30 minutes. But much is learned about modern Turkey, and in particular about Erdogan and his shift, with all the reins of power at his disposal, toward an authoritarianism moving toward totalitarianism.

Wow, what a great piece. It certainly gives a better picture of what’s going on and what the non-Islamist Turks are going through.
Thanks for posting.
Would so many Turks have protested 10 or 20 years ago?
Maybe the country is changing for the better.

How did you find this?
there was a link on http://pjmedia.com/instapundit/. I had never heard of either publication before, and know nothing of the author.
