As for me I discovered that I'm a gas and adrenaline junkie, the singing and barbecue type of activism is kinda boring so I'm back home. Working as much as possible and waiting with all my gear (gas mask, swimming goggles, vinegar, talcid mix) etc to come out if there's some action.
I cannot tell you the hilarity and creativity that marked the spirit of the movement because it's mostly Turkish, but let me say that young people from the resistance are calling police emergency lines like 911 and complaining that they haven't had any pepper gas in the park for hours and they need some immediately. The police answers, "don't worry we're on the way" :)
The prime minister called the protesters "drunks and punks" so everybody calls each other "hey there drunk punk" and they change their names to "Drunk Punk Sona Ertekin etc." and the biggest punks and drunks are of course the kids and grannies and cats and dogs in the protests :)
Anyway I'm home and safe now. I have left an extra laptop and spare clothes to the radio I used to work near the park too. So I'm in touch.
Thank you once again for the support,
Here's my two favorite pictures from the resistance
And here's some of mine:
