  •   xlii I am not familiar with the history - can i ask why? 3d
  •   pulup @xlii historically this square and May Day have been a huge issue. because May Day represents socialism/communism. back in 70s, more than 40 people died by gun shots, in this square. then a few years ago, current government allowed people (workers, unions, etc) to gather in the square. but 2 years ago, gezi park events (part of the square) took place and now the government is literally scared of people gathering on such a figuratively meaningful place. that's a summary of it. simply, they dont want workers, unions, university students (anyone against the government) to go out to a symbolic place and have some protests.. 3d
  •   pulup this is the reason @goldnessie 3d
  •   goldnessie I see, that is so sad that people cant speak out witout fear. Happensa as well here and even a lot of people got shot or disappear without knowing how. Hope tomorow will be a day without any incidents. 3d
  •   pulup @goldnessie unfortunately some parts of the world have such stupid problems.. I'll give an update tomorrow.. let's see 3d
  •   xlii Thanks. I did have to google may day though... We don't do that in australia. 2d
  •   pulup @xlii yeah, I guess you have a different labour day like the americans, brits.. 2d

pulup "STRONG" says the graffiti on the wall, which will be main motto of the police in Turkey as we approach to May Day.. Once again, workers are not allowed to celebrate their "Labor Day" properly on Taksim Square.. --
