Istanbul

It seems, that Erdogan plans to bring the Turkey back to Islamism, leaving the democratic culture of Europe, adoring the political style of Iran (and Assad in Syria?).

    • you would prefer Tokyo, Nia would prefer Istanbul – and I’ve been in Madrid adoring the guitarists there – maybe they should take the money for introducing the musicians of the world?

    • actually people were brought to prison for the simple sin only to stand there without a word, no poster, nothing: provocation enough in that land! Next Olympic Games there? They want to knock out Madrid and Tokyo.

  4. This is so sad for my country and for my beautiful city Istanbul. Nothing stops, especially with his speeches… Being so hurtful, unjustice and undemocratic… But nothing will be same as before anymore, they know there is a power of democratic people… But I am afraid they try to improve the weapons and responsibilities of the police against the public protests!!!!! Thank you dear Frizz, Love, nia
