Live stream: Turkish police renew assault on Gezi Park protesters

We stand with the Turkish protesters

As reported by the L.A. Times:

Hundreds of riot police surrounded a park in central Istanbul on Saturday, firing tear gas and water cannons in a renewed push by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to restore order after two weeks of demonstrations that have exasperated his government and exposed the country’s deepening political divide.

Police forces surrounded Gezi Park shortly before nightfall. They moved beneath sycamore trees toward tents and crowds of hundreds of protesters. Some demonstrators reportedly threw rocks but the dissidents appeared to be overwhelmed by security forces, whose lines spread into adjoining Taksim Square.

Ambulances arrived outside the park as tear gas enveloped the trees.

I’d like to personally thank President Obama for speaking out so strongly in support of the Turk protestors seeking freedom and democracy, a practice followed by American presidents going back to….

Huh? What?

Obama has said nothing? Just like when the Iranian people tried to create change a few years ago?

Well, maybe Obama doesn’t value freedom and democracy like Americans do.

    Well the A guy whose name I never bothered to spell did go when his 2 term statute restriction kicked in .

    So where is the 2009 fever now? They have just had very orderly elections in Iran & around the world ( at consulates) .

    Where is Mr Pistachio & his Green Party peeps? Nowhere. It was just a religious / commercial infight .

I think the neo-fascists and their OWS stooges better take a look. This is what it is going to look like if the Islamists and the Statists realize the fruits of their marriage made in hell.

They agree on the goal just not who is going to administer it.
