The protests in Turkey are characterised by a culture of cooperation, creative self-organisation and democratic resistance. Saturday 16 November we celebrated the opening of 'A Day in the Park' with music, food, discussion and film, all in the spirit of the Gezi protests. With traditional Turkish music and a DJ-set by the Eaglemen (Red Light Radio).
