Silent defiance against tyranny in Turkey

Here the silent protestors stand defiantly in Taksim Square, Istanbul at one of the global flashpoints of confrontation between state violence & human resistance to tyranny. They’re facing the Ataturk Cultural Center as the symbol of Turkish secular democracy. They’re young, they’re old; male & female united against tyranny & for democracy.

Our fullest solidarity with their struggle & deepest respect for their courageous defiance.
