Some of excessive intelligence against excessive violence (correspondence from Turkey + pics)

clip_image015Resistance in Taksim Gezi Parkı has been continuously growing and spreading all over the country. While mainstream Turkish media has closed its eyes for its own country’s facts, foreign media has revealed brutal excessive force of Turkish police against the activists, who are peacefully resisting without any act of vandalism and provoking. In the meantime, plain-clothes policemen have walked around and get in the crowd to destroy bank ATMs and try to stir up the crowd to break down shops’ glasses, bus stops in order to justify the government’s statement, which is stressing that the resistance is illegal and they had to use the excessive force to maintain peace.

However resisters have stopped immediately the group of people, who are attacking around with the encouragement of these provocateurs, though Prime Minister Erdoğan and his media still argue that what resisters do is terrorism and needs to be stopped.

While police officers are using excessive violence against activists, they are using excessive intelligence against the government and the cops. Thus, this intelligence has reflected into the graffiti and the posters during the resistance. Here are some examples of them:
