Occupy Wall Street
Raising taxes on the wealthy is just like genocide. (Unless, like, it's about trying to pay for things like schools and transportation and ways to give hard-working people a fair chance.)
On June 15, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan sent armored cars and riot police to clear Taksim Square. Gezi Park, the site of the original protests within the square, was closed to the public and put under police watch. For weeks after, the neighborhood felt quiet—"like playing house," Sibel, 23, who lives just down the road on Istiklal Avenue, said two weeks ago.
