  1. Are you Turkish? I’ve been following the news and what’s happening over there is more than just a protest.. (not to mention all that is uploaded on facebook)

    I think governments underestimate the power of Social Media… and perhaps that’s a good thing😉

  2. Yes but I am not based there. main stream media is still not paying attention. Police violence is terrible and none of the big tv channels do live streaming or detailed news coverage.

    You can check some reporters such as Ivan Watson from CNN Int https://twitter.com/IvanCNN

    Social Media is powerful, the government knows it but the problem is they do not understand the protests. It is not against trees but their poor democratic attitude towards the Turkish people (especially youth).
