I have not been submitting art much lately and been posting a few photos about the events happening in my country, Turkey.
It’s a huge event, and everyone is supporting the protests, as I am.
So I might not be active much for a while. I go to work, but besides that I spend my time supporting the protests and don’t feel like drawing much.
I found out that, when your country is at peril of losing it’s foundations and you are fighting for your freedom of speech, nothing else seems important at all.
So apologies if I’ll be absent too much.
I try not to bombard my Tumblr about the protests as I have with my Facebook and Twitter. But I know I have a significant amount of followers here and I would like all of you to know about what is happening over on this side of the world. Because it matters to us all.
Our resistence effects each and every one of you.
So please read this and be informed and any support is highly appreciated!
Turkish media do not show the brutality of the police. They are showing soap operas and documentaries instead of presenting real harsh situations in Izmir, Istanbul, Ankara and many others.
The Prime Minister spoke today and said that we are (the protesters) are just a bunch of plunderers and he should hang us on trees. PLEASE SHARE THE VIDEOS, SHARE THE PHOTOS, SHARE THE POSTS. HELP US DISSEMINATE THE INFORMATION, HELP US RAISE AN INTERNATIONAL AWARENESS.
The protesters in Ankara have taken Kizilat Square. Others are flocking over there as well
Are you aware what is going on all around Turkey?
My country is fighting a war against the dictatorship of our violent government.
