Most authoritarian regimes, treat any kind of dissent in this fashion. The conduct of the Turkish law enforcement agencies has been truly disgraceful, even chasing a wheelchair bound protestor with water cannon. If I lived in the EU, I would be very concerned at the actions of the Turkish government in this matter, they are not compatible with the norms of a truly modern and democratic state, and certainly not compatible with the entry criteria of the EU itself.
