To say that the trouble in Turkey is over the building of another shopping mall is surely missing something. A week of widespread protest in the face of extreme brutal police violence, only comes from an underlying anger by the people, at the authorities who ride roughshod over them. Turkish people know, like the rest of the people in Europe, that there is something rotten at the heart of, so called, "Western democracy". The system tramples the living standards of the ordinary people, shreds their rights and stifles peaceful dissent, while at the same time increasing and protecting corporate wealth and power. It continually transfers public assets and space to the corporate world, with no real benefits to the people. It is only a matter of time before people who are treated like this stand up and fight back. What we are witnessing is the righteous anger of the people, their anger will find the target eventually.
