Tue Jul 2 2013 (Updated 07/18/13)Bay Area Actions Oppose State Repression in Turkey and Around the World
As daily anti-government protests rocked Istanbul, demonstrators in the Bay Area showed solidarity against Turkish state repression with protests in Berkeley, Palo Alto, Santa Cruz, and Oakland, in addition to the establishment of Gezi Gardens in San Francisco.
The protests in Turkey began May 28 at Istanbul's Taksim Gezi Park, against plans to turn the loved and historic city park into a shopping mall. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan brutally attacked the peaceful demonstrators. Protests then erupted in opposition to Erdogan's crackdowns on political freedom, and moves by Erdogan's semi-Islamist government to limit alcohol sales and to outlaw signs of affection in public. The subsequent police violence against the people of Turkey has resulted in a number of casualties and injured thousands.
Organizers of the upcoming Rally for Rights in Santa Cruz state: "It doesn't matter whether the government is led by reactionary Islamists in Turkey, secular social democrats in Brazil, or conservative Republicans and liberal Democrats in the U.S., the systems they rule over are the same, and serve only the interests of the 1%."
