We’ve started so we’ll finish

History rewritten

After 33 years, today labor unions walk to Taksim Square. Around 5000 people walked to the centre of Istanbul to remember the one that died on bloody May 1, 1977.

Turkish government decided that 1 May will be public holiday last week, however permission to be on Taksim Square was undecided. 

Last year the city was blocked by governorship. This year police has been more understanding and not much happened besides some minor fights in narrow streets that lead to Taksim.

I hope history won’t repeat itself in the upcoming years.
