I wonder how did the Khimki woodland case end in Russia? It looks like the same struggle everywhere.

@patrick, it's the responsibility of PM to protect its citizens without discrimination, so in germany he did his job defending turkish citizens rights but in Turkey, he acts like a dictator, do you know thousands of people severely injured bec of police brutality,people lost their eyes even?!?

Even if you don't agree with protesters you cannot turn a blind eye to such police violence, such attacks against peaceful protesters who came from every age group, every political view, rich and poor, believers and non-believers protested Erdogan side by side, there was never such unity in any public demonstration...
