the turks are doing something we should be

protesting over the takeover of the "commons."
tn the crowded center of istanbul, there's a little park. it's not much by american or european standards -- a few square blocks of trees, paths, benches, and fountains, all in need of some loving care. until recently, most local residents just passed through on their way to the nearby bus stop, or perhaps sat for a few minutes on a sunny weekend. but over the past few days, little gezi park has become a major flash point -- its threatened destruction the spark for what have turned into nationwide protests, with hundreds of thousands of people demonstrating in the face of a fierce police crackdown. so what happened? - treehugger
