First of all, I know that people who know well Madonna can understand why I’m opening this topic in this page.
I’m a citizen of Turkey. In this country, everything is being banned by our cruel goverment: Freedoom of press, state theatres, art, alcohol, protests and so much more… Everything that The President Recep Tayip Erdoğan doesn’t like!
Yesterday (June 31, 2013), after a series of peaceful demonstrations for preserving a recreational area (Gezi Park) in Istanbul city centre, which is planned to be demolished for the construction of a shopping mall, Turkish police attacked the protesters violently with tear gas and water cannon, directly targeting their faces and bodies. Dozens of protesters are hospitalized and access to the park is blocked without any legal basis. Some of them died! And now, lots of people are protesting these horrible apperances in their own cities or by going to İstanbul. After all these events, some polices and provincial chairmen decided to resign.Turkish media, directly controlled by the government or have business and political ties with it, refuses to cover the incidents. Press agencies also blocked the information flow. If the social media wasn’t exist, nobody would be in on.
After all, Turkish democracy needs your help and support my friends.. Madonna is a great freedom fighter. She allways shows us the importance of freedom of expression, art and what we belive in. As all you know, she is very sensitive about this kind of subjects. As the fans or her team, we are like that. If she is The Queen, we are her knights. I don’t live in İstanbul but it’s a matter of state, a matter of liberty. Please share these horrible news with the world and support us. Thank you.
