Pledge to

Take stand in solidarity with the #OccupyGezi protestors

This pledge closed almost 2 years ago

How this will help

Turkish riot police fired tear gas and water cannons into crowds of demonstrators gathered in Istanbul's Gezi park on Friday. Since May 28, activists have held peaceful protests to prevent the demolition of a what they call Istanbul's last green public space. 

Amnesty International has condemned "the use of excessive force, including pepper spray, against peaceful protestors in a park in central Istanbul."

Istanbul's asking for your help. Media censorship in Turkey! Please spread the word #occupygezi .
