This iReport is part of an assignment:
Protests across Turkey
Since June we have been seeing protests all over Turkey.It started for Gezi Park,which wanted to be a shopping mall by PM Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.But I'm sorry the PM couldn't rule the protests as he wanted.He always said negative to them and protests went bigger and bigger.If he respected them when it had to,protests didnt increase.They dont believe the government that did reforms.They want free Turkey,they want justice,they want respect.Actually,they say:"We are here too,Mr. Erdoğan!You cant listen only people who voted you,you have to listen we all!"But I cant say good things as a citizen of Adana,Turkey.Because sometimes police didnt do good things but they had to do it.Because people who ordered them said this.The real criminal is them,I mean people who ordered.The main protest is at Taksim Square,İstanbul where Gezi Park is.After these all protests,people in Turkey can easily be together and protest anything they think wrong.September 1st is peace day at Turkey and people made a peace shackles .But police intervented them.Protests have finished as I see,but dont forget it can easily start again and i guess it will start again.Because holiday in Turkey is finishing at 16th September.At the holiday protests countined almost at the football and basketball matches.Fans of Beşiktaş,which known as Çarşı is the first fan which against the government.But government said it was a crime,i mean cheer against the government at the matches at the stadium.I know i didnt write good things but trust me life is normal at Turkey nowadays.But people scared the war against Syria,which government want to do.My opinion about this is:If the government respect s the protesters and listens them,it can stop the government easily.
Respect is the solution of these all.
