#OccupyGezi – Leaving Istanbul

Just when leaving, things got really busy in Istanbul – not even to mention, what is going in other parts of Turkey. While Gezi Park in Istanbul is now largely peaceful, dancing and singing, police is still using excessive violence in Ankara and other places.

These are just a few of my images from the very last weekend in Istanbul.

Unfortunately the press coverage of these protests are not very thorough, where Turkish media preferred to show documentaries on penguins, international press is covering hardly anything happening outside of Istanbul. Follow #occupygezi on twitter and have a look at http://occupygezi.com/ for backgrounds.
