Demonstration in Ankara Turkey to Stop the War

From Facebook…  I wonder how many people participated.  ~ BP

ANKARA SAYS NO WAR WITH SYRIA!!!

This is an image from the Turkish Capital of Ankara, where a massive demonstration took place almost 3 hours ago, rejecting any Military Intervention in Syria and demanding peace, with the banner protesters carrying pictured here saying:

“PEACE AT HOME, PEACE IN THE WORLD, NO WAR WITH SYRIA”

Update from Turkey: Unbelievable

From “Occupy Love” Facebook Page. If you have a Facebook account, you simply must see the video there. The people are literally filling the streets as you can see above, chanting, holding up the peace sign. They must be running on pure adrenalin by now. This has been going on for over a week now, hasn’t it?

We don’t have to do this in North America… we can do this more peacefully, but we must do it. We must make the change.

“This is not about Taksim anymore…This is not even about Turkey…My friends all over the world;this is the power of politics trying to come over the power of love …We, the mothers, the students, the teachers, the workers,the doctors, the housewives of the land…cannot sleep for days…and that is ok…even our hospitals filled with patients are being attacked now… teargas is being thrown in the houses … thousands of people are in the streets, helping and holding each other and the attack only comes form the police… we, all the people living in Turkey, are together now regardless of our age, political view,and everything, and walking hand in hand.. and now it is time for us all, all the people from all around the world, come together, and stand still in peace… as one… cause that is what it is… lets remember who we are, where we come from, where our hearts are still beating as one, lets remember that we were the ones who created the system, the government, the borders, lets remember that we are all brothers and sisters, coming from the same roots, lets remember, re- member …. and lets recreate what is needed now… we can do it, together as one…”

The REAL News from Istanbul, Turkey

An exhausted duo.

Wow, the turks are very brave and they’re not backing down. And get this—the MILITARY are backing the protesters!

Facebook is deleting posts and photos, so I’m sharing this here on my blog.

A German friend is sharing her version of current events since the media in Turkey is not. Her account is from other Facebook users.

All My Turkish Friends connections, posts and pictures have miraculously disappeared from FB.

From Facebook:

Turkish Citizens have Military Backup

[19:30] reader’s letter-DE: Direct from Turkey, very interesting:

I copied the text from Facebook:

Christine Barth GERMANY FOR MY FRIENDS: ==> IN ISTANBUL IS THE HELL OFF! HERE WE HAVE NO MOBILE INTERNET MORE HOTELS AND APARTMENTS AVAILABLE TO MAKE YOUR WIRELESS. HERE ARE AT LEAST 10,000 PEOPLE TO 3:00 AT NIGHT! STREET BATTLES AND RESIGNATION SLOGANS! ALL FULL OF GAS, THE GAS OF INJURED PROTESTER IS DIRECTLY FROM THE REAR BE REPLACED, THE FRONT SO THAT CAN NOT BE BROKEN. Military bases DISTRIBUTE THE PEOPLE’S GAS MASK, COPS THREATEN THE SOLDIERS WITH GAS FIRING! From helicopters IS GAS FIRED ON U.S., stronger GAS OTHER THAN THAT WHICH USE THE GROUND TROOPS! ABOUT ALL COACHES ARE FROM TURKEY WITH SUPPORTERS IN approaching. ANKARA IN IZMIR AND OTHER CITIES ARE THE PEOPLE ON THE STREETS! HOPE THIS TIME WILL BE THE END OF THE ACP GOVERNMENT … TOMORROW WILL BE IN ALL CITIES PLANNED DEMOS, HAVE ALSO HEARD IN Frankfurt … THE TURKISH CHANNELS SHOW NOTHING / NADA / ZERO! ! ! SHARING MY STATUS, ALL SHOULD KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON HERE. INTERNET IS COMING AND GOING THINK TIME SOON THE CAPS ALL THE LINES!

THE MILITARY SUPPORT THE PROTESTERS against THE POLICE! WHAT IS HERE GO? THAT IS THE POLICE IS IN TURKEY AS Paramilitary ORGANIZATION … AMAZING

Handing out supplies for those in need.

Supplies left out for those in need after tear gas attack, etc.

 

Know that Christine is right: this very scenario could duplicate on American/Canadian soil. Be ready. It’s almost looking like people in revolt against their governments is the only thing that is going to stop the tyranny on this planet.

Question: What would you do if this same situation came up where you live? Would you hide in your home? Would you support the protesters and join them? Would you provide supplies and assistance to those who protest? Just asking.

The News from Turkey: Citizens Selflessly Unite Against Tyranny in Aid of the Oppressed

From Facebook… because what they do to ONE, they do to ALL. There is no separation.
Heart warming story on Turkish developments…

Dear friends… I want to thank you most of all for your support and comfort.

We have a little over 80 million citizens here in the republic of Turkey… and something wonderful is happening here. Millions have not slept over the past 36 hours; we are all really on the streets. Large cities, small cities, suburbs are full of people who know how they will be treated. Jung and old people, professors, actors, writers, workers all know that they will be beaten bloody, be bombarded with teargas and agent-orange. This is not stopping anyone from helping those in need.

This was not planned, we did not organize this. We were all siting in our living rooms and saw in Halk TV and read on Twitter what was being done to peaceful demonstrators.

None of us thought long about this, we simply put on our shoes and ran out to help. Not even in my years as a student, have I ever taken part in a demonstration. But this is so natural that you don’t think of yourself and your own security any longer. It is so strange to experience this sort of thing… ALL ARE ONE…

Dear friends, I and many millions of people are experiencing this here and now and I tell you it feels absolutely wonderful… The POWER and ONENESS… and it is all so simple and it all went so fast… only when it has been awakened, do you realize, that the power was there all along and that we simply forgot it… WAKE UP… what is happening today here will be happening tomorrow in your country, the game is the same… what is fascinating me and probably baffling the powers that were – is that their system is as easy to bring down like a house of cards when you just stand as one.
In Love

Thanks,  Heidi Lichter ♥
