Gezi Park Istanbul. This is the park they want to turn into a shopping mall. Will Stephen's Green be next?

Hello! We are an international translating collective, that recently created a live-ticker about the situation in Turkey. We translate several sources we trust to spread informations about the rebellion in turkey, as the official media in turkey and many other countries as well is too lethargic, to inform the public properly. We translated it into several languages and we would appreciate it if you share the following links as wide as possible.

http://turkishspring.nadir.org/
http://gezipark.nadir.org/

https://twitter.com/sendika_org - Twitter updates and photos

Both websites display the same ticker (we created both as the term "turkish spring" is used by many people, but there are some as well who have some kind of ideological problems with using it)

To use the ticker, simply click on the language, you want to read. The sources we are translating are displayed on the websites

A man who opened fire on police and tried to provoke the protestors last night in Hatay is reported to be a member of the Free Syrian Army. The protestors, who were alarmed by his unusual behaviors, revealed the identity of the provocateur. The Free Syrian Army is an armed group supported by the Turkish government against the Syrian regime.

Parliamentarian from Hatay, Hasan Akyol, spoke to soL newspaper and said that the people surrendered the man to the security forces.

The provocateur is holding Syrian identity card. He stayed at the camps of the Free Syrian Army. It is not known yet whether the police have started legal investigation on the issue or not. (soL)

The Guardian has live coverage of the latest situation in Turkey.

Lawyer describes violent arrests
Lawyer Fatma Elif Koru describes the "brutal" arrest of 49 of her colleagues as they were presenting a press statement at Istanbul's ağlayan court.

Speaking to the Guardian she said:
We were just gathering to make a press statement about Gezi Park and then the police attacked. It was very brutal. Now 49 lawyer friends are in custody and many are injured.

They even kicked their heads. The lawyers were on the ground. They were hitting us, they were pushing. They built a circle around us and then they attacked.

Reports are coming in that Turkish riot police are now attacking protestors in Istanbuls Taksim Square and Gezi Park with reports of many injured.

The Turkish state is now ruthlessly pursuing people and organisations involved in the recent protests in Turkey. As reported on the WSWS website, they launched raids against 1000's of people. They also note that the Turkish state had laced water canons in the recent protests with pepper spray


Turkish counterterrorism forces carried out mass arrests Tuesday morning, grabbing scores of people from private homes and offices during sweeps in 21 of the countrys provinces and the major cities of Ankara, Istanbul and Eskisehir.

The arrests targeted parties active in the ongoing protest movement, including the Socialist Party of the Oppressed (ESP) and the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party (MLKP), the Gulf Times reported. According to the Progressive Journalists Association (GD), at least eight journalists were also taken and many more have been subject to police intimidation.

Two days earlier, police arrested over 500 protesters, deploying truncheons, rubber bullets, water cannon and tear gas indiscriminately against crowds that included many families and young children. Doctors reported that the water cannons were laced with chemical agents, leaving first degree burns on many of the victims.

A once secular turkey is dying. The death of a secular state is a dangerous development,and will breed fascism.

I fear under Erdogan an islamist state of totalitarianism is rearing its ugly head. I pity anybody who is a citizen of Turkey,even worse times are ahead of them.
