Instagramming the Gezi Diaries

The community spirit is all over as Gezi Park turns into a tightly-knit hub of shared books, ideas and love.

When the police do not intervene, it is hard to believe that the occupants of Gezi Park, Taksim, are there to protest. The park has turned into a small village with a library, infirmary, buffets filled with food people voluntarily cook and bring to the park, a children’s park and even an organic farm.

And inside the park, money is useless; all is free and shared with the others. They want their park back, they want their voices to be heard, they want police cruelty to come to an end. And from the looks of it, they are not going anywhere until things change for the better.
