[Reblogging ]The Funeral

Today was Berkin Elvan funeral. Tens of thousands of people came out to march from my old neighborhood of Sisli to the cemetery where he was buried at 5:20PM. Less than 1 hour later they opened fire and have used excessive gas and water cannons on the funeral procession. They are men, women, students, mothers, fathers, and grandparents who are being choked by their government. Here is a link to live footage played on loop and updated frequently when new clips become available. 

Below are a few photos from today, of the funeral and aftermath currently going on here in Istanbul and around Turkey.
