Erdogan said “we need to hang the people who are protecting the trees on those same trees”.

No, Turkey must be partitioned to the secular west and the Islamic east (Anatolia).

The Istanbul police top brass has met and come out with a raft of measures to defuse the tension, mainly a new policy of not attempting to break up demonstrations and of only using pepper gas if absolutely necessary.

The authorities are starting to backtrack a bit. I wonder if it will be enough.

Lordo was last seen prowling the streets of Besiktas with a police baton styled broomstick and a garbage can lid shield beating up already injured protesters.
