A message from Taksim Square to the people in Europe: "People realise they can do more than they used to believe"

A group of comrades of the Party of Freedom and Solidarity (ÖDP), the Turkish member party of the European Left and other activists, met the delegation of the Party of the European Left in Taksim Square. They asked us to transmit a message to the people in Europe.


“These squares from Madrid and TahRir in Cairo, Syntagma in  Athens, Taksim  in Istanbul and many others are showing us: Diversity is possible! The change of an authoritarian government through the action of the people is possible! We have shown that people can cross bridges. And we do not only mean the 23km march from the Asian side of Istanbul to Taksim Square.

People realise: they can do more than they used to believe. - No more excuses!

It can be over tomorrow or any time soon, and then we go back to our neighbourhoods, the university or our jobs.

But we will have big chances there to organise for political and legal changes. Because of these squares! Because what people experienced there! We have many opportunities to expand the boarders of our existing organisations. People will realise: It is not enough to act on the concept of nation. It is not enough to take the Turkish flag to the squares.

Nothing’s going to be the same any more. Give us a chance!”
