Protestors are 95% people like me. Most of my frriends are among them. I can not join much because my wife is pregnant and she worries a lot. Unfortunatelly we have a prime minister who only gets the votes of the uneducated and since we have lots of uneducated people here in Turkey, it is very easy to rule them.
Also the reason for the protests are because the Prime Minister slowly tries to change our lifestyles. He is incredibly Islamic and in every chance he gets he uses that. Right when the protests started he said and I quote '' If a person drinks alcohol he is alcholic. However if he drinks alcohol and votes for me than he is not alcoholic ''
There are few people who uses protestors and clash with the police but police uses it as an excuse to throw pepper gas or hit anybody they find. I've seen innocent people including children sitting and protesting peacefully, playing guitar, singing songs than thrown tear gas by police. Worse of it is that the innocent protestors hide inside hotels or buildings and police uses tear gas inside the buildings. They dont care if they are children or females. And on the tear gas capsules they use, it says '' it is forbidden to use this on close spaces ''
So things are messed up here. We became a police state thanks to a prime minister who thinks he is GOD or his messenger. The educated catches up on his lies, but the uneducated believes him. Sad story. But things are changing. Many EU countries and USA are really angry towards the Prime Minister Erdogan. Even most Middle Eastern countries are mocking him right now. The lies he says are amazing.
Imagine someone saying '' PLAYSTATION 4 is the best console ever '' and the crowd cheers for him but a month later he says '' I never said playstation 4 is the best console. XBOX ONE IS THE BEST CONSOLE EVER '' and than the same crowd cheers for him.
Things are changing though thanks to the protests.
Edit : Protestors all believe in democracy and rulling party got a high vote so of course they will rule, but this doesnt mean that he can claim everyone who doesn't think like him a terrorist. When a person is a prime minister, than he becomes the prime minister of '' Turks, Kurds, Armenians, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Ateists, Buddists, homosexuals within that country '' Basically he must act like a prime minister for everybody. And all he cares about his voters. Rest can suffer.
