The protests in Turkey were largely peaceful. The protesters even formed a 'commune'. In it was a moneyless market, a small library and a quiet area for reading, and a prayer area for religious participants. That area has since been bulldozed after an unprovoked raid which dispersed the demonstrators from the area.

It's important to remember that one protest against the demolition of a single park in Istanbul has turned into a nation-wide movement, opposing the increasingly authoritarian government and creeping Islamism. A few environmentalists stirring up trouble and attracting a stronger police response doesn't result in national anti-government protests without good reason.

That dog has a look as if to say "Welp, getting the **** outta here."

It's quite an amazing photo, when you think about it. The way that the line is closing in, and the dog just so happens to be there.

What is wrong with them? They are just wearing le 9gag mask.
No, seriously. What is wrong with them wearing that mask?

"I hate what the government is doing and I'm willing to show it!.......as long as no one can recognize me...I kinda like my job." - goy fooks masks
#52 to #49 - lesmiserables (06/16/2013) [-]
That's actually a reasonable stance IMO. Bring the red thumbs. Not everyone can afford to lose their jobs, but they do wanna show their support to what they believe in. When you guys move out from your parents basement and get a family and other responsibilites, you will understand.
User avatar #69 to #52 - beatmasterz (06/16/2013) [-]
In most countries you won't lose your job when you protest.
#81 to #69 - lesmiserables (06/16/2013) [-]
That was the reason he gave me, and I defended that.

People are so closed-minded and can't seem to make their own thoughts... the mask is "unpopular" on this site now, and therefore they think they are faggots for wearing it. They may be faggy rich hipsters, who just partakes in the protests, because they don't like the "system" or something, and wear the mask, because it represents the mindless pop-culture that they have adopted, but maybe they just think it looks cool, and wear it because they actually have something to fear if they are recognized.
User avatar #85 to #81 - beatmasterz (06/16/2013) [-]
I've heard countless people telling that all people are closed-minded, that's a bit suspicious, don't you think?
#86 to #85 - lesmiserables (06/16/2013) [-]
It's basic human nature to be filled with prejudices and generalisations from past experiences, but with the evolution of mass-media and progress of civilization, we are filled with others' experiences/opinions all the time, and that's why we are all close-minded bigots. I am not an exception of course.
User avatar #87 to #86 - beatmasterz (06/16/2013) [-]
Wouldn't that make us the exact opposite of closed-minded? As we are constantly confronted with other people's opinions and circumstances we have a lot of different perspectives.
#88 to #87 - lesmiserables (06/16/2013) [-]
I'm sorry, English is not my first language and I have used the term "close-minded" wrong. I'm actually arguing for more close-mindedness.
I also ruined my whole comment by writing 'opinions'. I only meant 'experiences'.
Here's an example of how I think it works:
a person sees a headline that says "Black man raped white girl".
Then he'll go home and see in the TV that the reporter is talking about a black man who raped a white girl. Then he'll go on the internet or meet with some friends and they'll talk about the black man who raped the white girl.
Then he will automatically think about that every time he sees a black man.
That's why I think people are so filled with prejudices and generalisations, because by nature we only have our own experiences, or maybe a small group's, to form our opinions from.
User avatar #90 to #88 - beatmasterz (06/16/2013) [-]
Nah, I don't think it's that way. There are very few people who have that much of a dogmatic view on the world.
#91 to #90 - lesmiserables (06/16/2013) [-]
My example was in the extreme to emphasize my point.
User avatar #92 to #91 - beatmasterz (06/16/2013) [-]
But extreme cases don't make up the majority ;).
#93 to #92 - lesmiserables (06/16/2013) [-]
It was an example of how it works. It could be about Nutella too. Nutella is voted most delicious spread, Nutella comercials everywhere, everyone talks about Nutella. Everyone thinks Nutella tastes great, even people who haven't tasted it. They are coloured by other peoples' experiences.
User avatar #95 to #93 - beatmasterz (06/16/2013) [-]
Well sure you got me there, the media does influence opinions. But does Nutella make all the chocolate paste taste good?
User avatar #97 to #95 - beatmasterz (06/16/2013) [-]
So by that logic people should think that every other black person is a non-rapist.
#99 to #97 - lesmiserables (06/16/2013) [-]
Yes. The alternative is to presume every black person is a rapist.
There's nothing wrong with being careful and avoiding possible dangers, but there's a difference between stigmatizing people for things they haven't done, just because they are of a certain gender or age. You can avoid possible dangers, without doing that.
#96 to #95 - lesmiserables (06/16/2013) [-]
No, quite the contrary. People believe Nutella is the only chocolate paste that taste good, and all the other pastes are rubbish.
User avatar #98 to #96 - beatmasterz (06/16/2013) [-]
whoops, wrong response
#62 to #52 - bronywhat (06/16/2013) [-]
That's what the internet is for. If you're gonna show up to a protest have the balls to show your face. Masks make the whole thing look so toothless.
#64 to #62 - lesmiserables (06/16/2013) [-]
Protests are much more effective than complaining on the internet. Whether they wear masks or not.

(It's a serious question. I'm thinking of moving and I've seen that Finland is basically bowed to on this site.)

Well we have great education system, good law-abiding society, good supports for students and unemployed...

I was actually in Turkey for my birthday, which happened to be the second day of rioting.

The police used so much tear gas that it was stinging our eyes/sinuses/throats from about a mile away.
#31 - youraverageteenage (06/16/2013) [-]
It's just because other people take advantage of these protests for using it for another purpose. You think the police just starts randomly shoot people with rubber bullets or water? No. It's just because you akways have those people who just want to start a riot and hurt other people. They're the problem not cops.
#59 to #31 - anon (06/16/2013) [-]
actually it down them middle whilei do agree with you but you also forget to meant that polcei do sometime pretend ot be protesters to get rid of them there is nemapleo f the uk such as the miners and poll tax protesters tis example ofthme doing this also hillburough desiter is another fact is I would arge both can be bad as each other
User avatar #75 to #31 - ponchosdm ONLINE (06/16/2013) [-]
well, there are not always "other people", in Mexico Government uses "Grupos de choque", paid people to start the hostilities against the police to get evidence of a "Hostile Protest" and use unmeasured force against protesters and justify police's life threat situation, i really think is the only country that does that...
User avatar #80 to #75 - jrondeau **User deleted account** (06/16/2013) [-]
Yeah, I think using the Mexican government as an example for just about anything is quite a bad idea what with the drug cartels basically being the government and such...

Yes and no . The reasons that the police will become violent is not always the same .
You must remember that being a policeman is a JOB .
Most of the times they are put into a corner and told that they will lose their jobs .
And before you say ,"he could disobay order" ... policeman has a family aswell .
Do not expect people to become martyrs .
Also may i remind you people that in most countries , the police officers dont have
to protect the citizens , JUST ENFORCE THE LAW .(Yes america you are one of them ... great freedom you got there )
TLR
Cops are at fault just like any other human being that just doesnt do something to not elect the same ******* every god damn time .Also they are paws just like every single one of those troublemakers .
User avatar #35 to #31 - oxan (06/16/2013) [-]
In Turkey, the protesters later on (when they became full on anti-government rallies) frequently attempted to stop people throwing molotovs and becoming violent. Those doing so, however, we actually police provocateurs.
User avatar #21 - demandsgayversion (06/16/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure in 100% of these situations, the protest devolved into a riot before the cops started copping.
#82 to #21 - anon (06/16/2013) [-]
No this time, not in Brazil
#58 to #21 - anon (06/16/2013) [-]
police tend ot have track record of pretending to be protestors so thye can get rid of them it ahppne in the uk duing the miners stikes and poll tax so I wouldn't put it past them to od this
#41 to #21 - anon (06/16/2013) [-]
in those two cases, NOPE.
#22 to #21 - anon (06/16/2013) [-]
Explain to me how you're pretty sure? Or are you just assuming because you don't want to admit the intrinsically violent nature of the police force?
User avatar #23 to #22 - demandsgayversion (06/16/2013) [-]
That's not a thing.

Normally I would agree with you but police in general have a track record of doing this kind of **** to nonviolent protesters.

Step 1: "Peaceful Protest"'   
Step 2: "Police show up"   
   
I think yur missing a step there OP.  Something along the lines of  "Douchebags start screaming and breaking 			****		 cause they thought it's a riot"

Go find out what actually happened first, idiot. The brazilian protests were 100% peaceful all the way.

When the police told us to leave, by nicely throwing smoke bombs, people literally got up and started to leave.

Oh but hey, my friend was shot with a rubber bullet in the leg while walking away
#60 to #48 - anon (06/16/2013) [-]
you actually missed an option not step due fact some police force around the world will have some behnd the proster to makei t sem thye sarted it example of the uk such miners and poll tax also hillbrough deister so I wouldn't actually blame one side on this but both
User avatar #66 to #60 - admiralen (06/16/2013) [-]
thats retarded, you realize cops arent evil right? or are you actually that stupid you dumb ****
#67 to #66 - lostindark (06/16/2013) [-]
It depends on the part of the world. If the protest was damaging enough to a big enough power, that power would take steps to belittle it. For example sending a double agent.
User avatar #68 to #67 - admiralen (06/16/2013) [-]
and the rest of the retards in the protest goes postal when it starts anyway, thats the problem...
#70 to #68 - lostindark (06/16/2013) [-]
Well yeah. It's incredibly easy to manipulate the masses.
User avatar #72 to #70 - admiralen (06/16/2013) [-]
thats why i hate all these faggots who go around on this page and act like protesters are ******* saints who are perfect in every way, theyre ******* assholes in the end
#74 to #72 - lostindark (06/16/2013) [-]
The people who take the time and actually organize the protest and show up in the early stages are generally good intentioned. The peoples who fall in line like cattle are not.
User avatar #76 to #74 - admiralen (06/16/2013) [-]
indeed, in the gothenburg riots the ******* brought golf balls to shoot at the cops, then destroyed an entire street, then when one guy who was throwing huge rocks at the cops got shot, it was the cops who were bad
#79 - dementedg (06/16/2013) [-]
This isn't really the police or the protesters fault, just a bunch of ******* cunts who tried to take advantage of the situation by trying to turn it into a riot/rob a few ******* shops, so the police (over)reacted and **** hit the fan. You know the kind of people who start **** for the sake of starting **** .

Back in 2011 around August in the UK I believe riots broke out because someone pulled a gun out on a police officer and as a result got gunned down. This lead to a small protest which the scum seeing this as an opportunity to rob/beat others, caused riots, or literally plan raid shops (planned on newly stolen phones/laptops).

People like this don't need to be put in ******* prison, they need to be put in a ******* school so they can ******* learn that this **** isn't acceptable, and a police man arresting and throwing them in a cell is just going to make them angrier.

No.... It's not the police...
It's the bored, hormone-driven college students that think they're the **** because they yell " **** THE POLICE" and ruin peaceful protests.
The fine men and women of law enforcement don't want to be out teargassing kids, they want to be at the police station chilling and eating donuts.
#17 - anon (06/16/2013) [-]
its not the police simply because the police are following orders of the government which they're protesting, in order to keep their jobs they have to do what theyre told

isn't that the same excuse the Nazis used?

Maybe next time you shouldn't BREAK THE ******* LAW AND START A GODDAMN RIOT. If you break the law, police are going to defend the people, plain and simple. Stop with your hippy conspiracy theory crap.
User avatar #47 to #40 - happyfox (06/16/2013) [-]
police are meant to protect the people, in Turkey it was a peaceful protest, where a vast police retaliation was made. Excessively from what I've read. I think in this case the people were in the right.

Not to say that the police are always wrong though, I like in Northern Ireland, you might have seen us on the news recently for the flag riots. The protesters here were not peaceful. They claimed to be, yet threw petrol bombs at police and wore balaclavas. I have no problem with people protesting if they feel wronged, but to goad the police into action then cry "police brutality" is just stupid.

Ever considered that they are just doing their jobs? They are supposed to enforce the law and that is what they are doing.
#37 - lieutenantpansy (06/16/2013) [-]
Both of those "peaceful" protests developed into a riot BEFORE the police did their job.
Get your ******* facts straight.
The police is (most of the time) our friend and even though they have flaws and there are shocking stories about racism and venality and such, they are the only reason we can sit in front of our computers every day and live our life without the fear of getting ******* killed, robbed or raped all day. The government has its flaws. But my god.
We are living in a industrial country and even the most poor ************ on this site has it better than most of the people in african or some other *********** .
Speaking as a eurofag here, btw.
Dunno how exactly the situation is in America.


sorry for the rant, but I ******* hate contra-governmental crap and anarchy ****
