footage from yesterday afternoon

This was the scene in Taksim Square yesterday afternoon. It was during the second gassing, that we tasted something funny in the air. People were falling down, animals were running— it is reported that in addition to many people being hospitalised throughout the duration of the protests, quite a number of Istanbul's street animals have died.

Samantha, I thought of you yesterday when I first heard about the protest in Istanbul. Be safe please! I think there is a deep struggle going on now between the people and the forces of power and it is just surfacing.

Thank you, Rob.
There is indeed a struggle, and people are fed up!
