Gezi Park is dead

Erdoğan got his votes by corruption and fear, the Kurd war revived and Syria. the Gezi ideals crushed, free speech shushed, islamization to continue in Turkey. (maybe not dead but undercover)

de Sinan Eden, com as devidas distâncias, ou seja, o homem não é imparcial:

1Nov TURKISH ELECTIONS
#30 The Supreme Electoral Council's website down! While TVs show 90% of results, the SEC site referred to only 35% when several contradictions were highlighted:
In at least 10 districts so far, in official numbers, AKP won votes without the opposition losing any. The general practice for each party is to secure their own votes, but if AKP is producing votes in a centralized way, the only way to check is to compare election reports from each ballot box with SEC's numbers.

The site (Election results)  is still down. There is a parallel counting going on by civil society initiatives (which would take a long while). This happened before, in local elections, when AKP lost Istanbul and Ankara. But at the end of the day, they remained in power.

1Nov TURKISH ELECTIONS
#26 Preliminary results arriving, with more than 40% of ballots counted.
It seems, for now, that AKP's nationalist manoeuvre paid off. The nationalist MHP lost around 40 of its 80 seats to AKP, giving AKP a majority in the parliament.

1Nov TURKISH ELECTIONS
#25 Reported: Voluntary observers not allowed to the counting process.
Bursa. Only official clerks are allowed to observe the counting of the votes....

1Nov TURKISH ELECTIONS
#23 Observer in the elections, Member of the European Parliament, Martina Michels, on military and police presence in elections in Kurdistan: "What is happening here is not compatible with any democratic criteria. We have never seen such a militaristic scene."

1Nov TURKISH ELECTIONS
#22 International observers refused access. European Parliament observers had to confront Special Forces in Diyarbakır.
- Six observers in Yenişehir and one translator in Dicle were arrested.
- Sur: Police threatened journalists. They requested no photos to be taken, otherwise they "can accidentally shoot".
- Their driver was beaten up by AKP members.

1Nov TURKISH ELECTIONS
#21 In Keçiören, Ankara, a local administrator voted on behalf of people who didn't show up.

1Nov TURKISH ELECTIONS
#20 This is awkward even in Turkish standards: I read three cases so far, of ballot papers given to voters, where the papers didn't have HDP's logo printed on them.

1Nov TURKISH ELECTIONS
#14 In Çağlayan, Istanbul, some 200 CHP and HDP voters were refused to vote. They have their elector's cards, they voted in that same place in June, but the officials claim their names do not appear in the list.

etc etc

once upon a time in anatolia...
