Government reacts violently to protests in Turkey

Via Facebook:

“Turkish police outdid today in terms of violence and viciousness alongside a shocking media blackout by the docile remnants of the Turkish media.

Won’t even discuss Greece – nothing I’ve seen in Athens could compare to what was on show today in Taksim as police pistoleros shot one teargas canister after another into the crowds, hitting several demonstrators on the head and allegedly killing this girl:”
