Urfa’dayız…

Bol sohbet muhabbet, türk kahvesi, dolma-sarma, sabahları közlemiş patlıcan, bazlama…
Kızları anneye satıp kuaför,bakım, fön, röfle…
Geceleri sazlı sözlü eğlence…
Telefon yok, facebook yok, mailler yok…
Çat kapı ziyaretler, felsefik sohbetler…
Anne kucağı, baba ocağı, dalından yenilen dut, köpek yavruları, köy yumurtası…
Bir yılın özlemini giderme çabası…
Hiç bitmesin istediğimiz bir tatil…
Urfa’dayız.

Ey dostlar, arkadaslar, tum sevdiklerim, evimiz haber üssü gibi, radyodan ajansı dinliyoruz durmadan. İnsanın aklındaki binbir turlu dünyevi düsünce vatan sevgisi karsısında bir anda sabun kopugu gibi oyle kolay kayboluyormus ki, kendime sastim! Insanlar nasıl savasır, olumun oldugunu bile bile nasil hucuma kalkar diye zaman zaman dusunurdum kendi kendime. Ortada savas filan yok ama Turkiye’de olsam her gun direnise katılırdım, hic bir seyden korkmadan, cekinmeden cıkardım sokaga. Ister galeyana gelmiş deyin ister baska bir sey bu toplu halk hareketimiz, baskaldırısımız binlerce kilometre uzerinden yuregimizi oyle bir atesliyor ki 21 Haziran’da Istanbul’da ucaktan iner inmez Taksim’e gidesim var. Ben de herkes gibi yok sayılmaya, saygısızlıga ve basbakanın kibirli davranıslarına karsı tepkiliyim. Bizim Avustralya’ya goc etme dusuncelerimizin tohumunu atan sey cevremizde gordugumuz betonlasma, egitimden sanata her alanda ileriye, iyiye gidecekken tam tersi duzenlemelerin yapılması, kendi dusuncesinden olanları kayırma, sınavlardaki haksızlıklar, sifreler, ve adalet ve hukuk sisteminin, yargının kontrolunun giderek cok ciddi bir bicimde iktidarın gudumune girmesi en onemlisi de bu yasananlara kimsenin sesinin cıkmaması ve herkesin olanları kanıksamıs oldugunu gormekti. Meger az daha bekleseymişim boyle olmadıgını gorecekmişim. Bu silkinme, uyanış, isyan, çıglık oyle iyi geldi ki bana, bitkisel hayatta olan bir hastanın yasama donmesi gibi mutlu oldum. Niyetimiz kimseyi incitmek, acıtmak, zarar vermek değil. Herkese saygılı, eşit, hür bir yaşam, belki de dünyada eşi olmayan bir sistem: başı kapalının namazını kıldığı, toplantısını yaptığı, eziyet görmediği ama etek boyuna bakarak da bir genç kızın ahlakına not verilmediği veya tacize müstehak görülmediği bir sistem. Hükümetin bugün attığı her adım bizim çocuklarımıza bırakacağımız ülkenin yaşamın niteliğini belirliyor. İnsan hakları, özgürlük, medeniyet, çağdaşlık, başka bir şey istemiyoruz. Burada gördüklerimi çoğu kez yazdım, anlattım. Kimse kimsenin kıyafetine karışmıyor, öyle her yerde açık saçık giyinen görmüyorum, görsem bile kötü gözle bakmıyorum, o kişi de bir mesaj vermek için öyle giyinmiş olmuyor zaten. Yüzme havuzunda hiç bir erkeğin hiç bir bayana, şöyle kaçamak da olsa baktığını görmedim. Her yer yeşil, yolların ortasındaki ağaçlar kesilmemiş, yol ağacın etrafından geçiyor, “slow point” yapılmış. Ağaç, kuş sesleri doğa için kilometreerce yol gitmek zorunda değilsin cunku kapının onunde. Asgari ucretin saatlik yaklasık 35TL. Vergi ve kazanç o kadar guzel duzenlenmiş ki kimse yokluk cekmiyor. İnsan onuruna, vicdanına dokunan bir sey yok. -Ya da ben henüz gormedim- Gelirler arasında ucurum yok, her sey seffaf. İki gune bir evimize devletten “reply paid” karsı odemeli anket geliyor, sayfalar dolusu, doldurup gonderiyorum. Ulkede neler olup bitiyor, her seyin nabzını tutuyor devlet. Sikayetler dikkate alınıyor, gerekli adımlar hemen atılıyor, kamu vicdanı lafta degil gercekte var ve kamu vicdanına cok iyi kulak veriliyor. Polis adil, akıllı, mantıklı! Herkes isini severek yapıyor. Marifet kabadayılık yapmakta degil Tayyip, marifet ulkeni ve insanlarını huzurlu, guvenli ve refah icinde yasatabilmekte! Bırak eski defterleri kurcalamayı, insanların dış görünüşleri ile uğraşmayı, aklında yolu bir! Gelecekte nasıl anılmak istiyorsun? “Ülkenin içine etti” mi diyeceğiz, “Helal olsun” mu diyeceğiz? Belki çok geç kaldın gerçekten önemli olan şeyler üzerinde kafa yormak için ama üzülme, yapacağın bir şey hala var: İstifa et, “Onurlu adammış” diyelim!

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
Protests follow Erdogan’s approval of alcohol ban
Turks blame Erdogan, saying he is too authoritarian
PM says he can bring ‘millions’ to streets
ISTANBUL – Drunkards, extremists, foreign agents and even Twitter – Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan is heaping blame on everyone except himself and his ruling party for an outbreak of violence involving a broad spectrum of Turkish society.

“He’s not been behaving rationally at all,” said Gareth Jenkins, an Istanbul-based researcher with the Silk Road Studies Program at John Hopkins University. “He appears to be becoming almost delusional and refusing to accept the reality that these protests are mainly spontaneous and are being organized by small groups of people who’ve never engaged in politics before.”

Dismissing the thousands of demonstrators confronting police in cities across Turkey, the prime minister has labeled them “looters” and “bums.”

Even so, during the past few days demonstrations have gained momentum.

STORY: Tensions in Turkey remain high

FIRST PERSON: Moments of peace amid protests

Officials report that since Friday there have been more than 1,700 arrests and hundreds of injuries as protesters confronted police armed with tear gas and water cannons. In Istanbul, an Ottoman-era mosque near the prime minister’s office has been converted into a makeshift field hospital where volunteer doctors are treating the wounded.

The demonstrations follow decisions made by Erdogan’s government to introduce tighter restrictions on alcohol, to wade into social debates like reproductive rights and to boast about its attempts to raise a devout generation of Muslim youth.

But despite the unprecedented protests for modern Turkey in Istanbul and the capital city Ankara, Erdogan remains unrepentant.

“This is a protest organized by extremist elements,” Erdogan said Monday a press conference before leaving for a four-day trip to Africa. “We will not give away anything to those who live arm-in-arm with terrorism.”

In response to demonstrators who publicly mock his ideas and call for his resignation, the Turkish prime minister has also lashed out at political rivals, blaming them for provoking the public. He also blamed social media, the popularity of which has soared in recent days as protesters complain Turkish broadcasters have given scant coverage to the unrest.

“There is a problem called Twitter right now and you can find every kind of lie there,” Erdogan proclaimed Sunday. “The thing that is called social media is the biggest trouble for society right now.”

Meanwhile, in Istanbul’s Taksim Square, police have stayed out of sight since withdrawing Saturday afternoon with crowds reaching a peak of more than 100,000 around the square.

On Monday evening, crowds began to gather in Gezi Park where on Friday police injured scores of demonstrators who were protesting at plans to raze the park to make way for another shopping mall.

Despite a court injunction against the plan, Erdogan insists the project will go ahead and says he will also build a mosque as well as raze a nearby culture center.

As riot police used tear gas against protesters for a fourth straight day in Istanbul, Turkey’s president and prime minister displayed wide differences Monday in their responses to those taking to the streets. One death was reported. (June 3)

Ridvan Urper, a 27-year-old university research assistant, who arrived in Gezi Park to demonstrate for better public education, said the idea that anti-government demonstrations are the work of agitators is absurd.

“Erdogan is trying to manipulate the process,” Urper told USA TODAY. “This all happened spontaneously. This is not the work of any political party.”

Turkey-based analysts agree.

“This started out genuinely as a people’s movement,” said Didem Collinsworth, a Turkey analyst with International Crisis Group in Istanbul.

“A segment of society, mostly middle-class secularists, felt frustrated and alienated by the government’s recent policies and particularly the prime minister’s uncompromising rhetoric.”

Still, Erdogan has accused the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) of stoking tensions. He has vowed to raze a cultural center dedicated to Turkey’s first leader, and founder of the party, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. He has also claimed he’s restraining his own supporters from taking to the streets, warning darkly that if the CHP could call 100,000 to the streets, he could call “a million.”

Erdogan’s Islamist-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP) was re-elected two years ago with about 50% of the vote and still remains the most popular political movement in Turkey. And it’s this kind of polarizing talk – warning of street battles between rival supporters – that is especially dangerous, warn analysts.

“He should tone down this kind of rhetoric,” said Collinsworth. “Turkey is a polarized society and I think the protests show that. But I don’t think the people want to bring it to a point of ‘us’ versus ‘them,’ and neither should the prime minister.”

Meanwhile, Jenkins says the prime minister’s behavior is counterproductive to his own political future.

“He’s certainly lost a lot of credibility domestically in Turkey, even with AKP supporters and internationally,” he said. “I think for the international community there’s a very real understanding now just how authoritarian and egotistical he has become.”

INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT NEEDED!

kızadamTurkish people says “Stop!” to current prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his government’s policies. Turkey is a secular republic country which was founded by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk 90 years ago. In the last 11 years Erdogan’s ild islamic government, AKP made many regulations on the way that society live, those changes now came to a point that citizen’s PERSONAL RIGHTS and FREEDOM OF SPEECH is being restricted. The media, the legal authorities and all important and critical positions in the country has been taken over sometimes silently sometimes overtly by AKP partisans. Turkish people is surprised to see how little is left from Ataturk’s civilized vision.
Turkish people give full support to a civil movement initiated by a handful peaceful people at Taksim Gezi Parkı, where the government decided to demolish a recreational area in order to build a shopping mall. Now the reaction spreads and increases in a way that it is no more a “save the green” protest but an outburst of a scream that people were holding back for 10 years against Tayyip Erdogan’s dictatorship. Erdogan always defends his policies by saying half of the people supported him at the election but it is a fact that he doesn’t respect and listen to the other half of the country and even his supported at the elections are against what is going on now. they say we weren’t expecting him to go such further. His speech tends to drive the country into separation, hatred and trouble. At the moment horrible things are going on in Turkey. Thousands of people want to use their right of speech by walking on the streets, showing their reaction however Turkish police uses EXCESSIVE FORCE against Turkish citizens using tear gases, water cannons and event orange gases! The people in the streets are families, young girls, old people, students, workers, children, grannies… Everyone is out of the balconies, banging the pots and pans. Turkish citizens are without masks, weapons, and protective clothes, they are there just by themselves. Turkish police reacts according to the orders in order to avoid people come together. In 65 city of Turkey, police now uses excessive force against innocent people. Police beats people very badly, thousands of people are injured and they are taken under custody. The cell phones of those who are taken under custody are seized.The police make the protesters sign a form on which it declares that they are given their phones back in order to release them. Police also make them to sign a paper declaring they are member of some (terrorist) groups. People are obliged to sign these forms because their life is threaten. AKP government uses blacklisting method to keep a record of anti-AKP citizens and probably the cell-phones will give them lots of data. Police is in ambush at the hospital emergency services, sends the injured people to headquarter first. Media doesn’t show anything and officials buried their heads under the ground. Turkey needs the support of world media to voice what is going on.
I am a Turkish citizen living in Western Australia Perth, I ask for your help and support raising awareness of the people against fascism.
teyze.
