Istanbulites are rebelling in a never seen, peaceful unity of many groups out o different backgrounds. While media likes to focuse on riots and violence, the quality of this revolt is it’s Creativity. Istanbul is gassed massively, the youngsters from Beşiktaş lived nightmarish nights and had a big part in saving the Taksim Square and Gezi Park area from the police.
