We shall see where things stand after the meeting with Erdogan and the 11 protesters that hope to be able to work as a the voice between the people and the government. That happened this afternoon. Erdogan obviously hasn't much sense of the rights of the people.

I'm not so sure that meeting will even take place ..there is another deadline out for this afternoon local time for all squares to be cleared... I bet we'll watch people streaming in again, all tents are still there.

Yes, I see violence ongoing there for a long time to come as well. As we face our dilemmas in the U.S.

It is always interesting & Exciting when the People REVOLT for a better society or to express an injustice has to be ceased.
