During the month of June every major city in Turkey saw tens of thousands of people converge in the streets in defiance of the government and its autocratic rule. What started at the end of May in Istanbul as a movement against urban development resonated across the country and became an uncontrollable revolt spreading like wildfire. Catching everyone, including its participants, off-guard the uprising has captivated the imagination of people in Turkey as well as those following it across the globe.

Join us to hear a first-hand report from Istanbul, accompanied by photos and videos, outlining the progression of the uprising, some of its participants, their strategies, the reconciliation of social divisions, contradictions on the ground and stories from the heady days filled with teargas and barricades.
