Class Struggle in Turkey

On May 31 suddenly, with no warning at all, Turkey erupted. For the first time in recent history, women, students, workers, artists, youth, Kurds, Artists, Turks, gays-lesbians, Alevites, doctors, small merchants, environmentalists, unions and progressive associations rose up together to say "Enough is enough" to the brutal regime. All the government could do was to set its brutal police with their US-EU supplied tanks, water cannons, batons and tons of pepper gas against the peaceful demonstrators. But something was different this time. This time the people resisted instead of pulling back.
Mehmet Bayram, a long time journalist and Bay Area activist from Turkey will report on the developments that led to the events and the aftermath. A discussion of politics and class struggle in Turkey will be presented followed by a discussion and QA session.
