10 June Taksim Square – Jenna Pope

 

There were solidarity events in support of the Turkish demonstrations in many  cities over the weekend of 8-9 June.  There were many media blackouts leading up the events, with facebook consistently blocking promotion of the events.  Tell your story of being blocked by facebook at http://pastebin.com/GbYYcpZP.

Following are some videos of solidarity actions:

8 June, Rome

9 June, Madrid

And a well done video in English with interviews of people on the streets, excellent footage of make-shift hospitals, and general protest footage -  covers the first week of the uprisings.
