Yeah Turkey is a democracy, have elected government, also member of NATO and G-20, candidate for European Union..etc. Everything is ok about that. I love my country, one of the most beautiful countries in Europe.
It is much bigger problem than the mall. Erdogan must respect people who didn't vote for his party. There is a big segment of Turkey increasingly frustrated with his authoritarian tendencies. He tells people how many kids they should have, what to drink, he controls basicly commercials.. Erdogan is a control freak. He likes to control things. He is doing everything to please his conservative base.
Well, Turkey is a sweet country, but we have problems too.
its because the square is the symbol of the secular revolution that symbolizes something to the Turks and Erdogan wanted to build a shopping center instead!!!
if let say my Gov will say we want to build a shopping center when rabin was murder they will get hell.
dont touch symbols, sometimes its the only thing that left esp if u do it without asking the ppl
Well said, friend, thanks.
