Sad that this is going on everywhere--the people shouldn't have to fight 4 their precious forests. Thx Cal

Sadly noted. Thanks, Cal. Agree with Natasha and Darren...people shouldn't have to go thru this kind of crap to save a bit of green...

These are very brave ladies. Although Turkey is a beautiful country, their police force is heavy-handed

Good people will prevail for the forest :)
Police must protect the people, not dark interests of business or governments.

All power to them! May they succeed in pressuring the government to stop the destruction of public land and the privatisation of public space.

Thanks Cal for posting.
