6/13 Public Forum

Solidarity with #OccupyGezi!
Thursday, June 13 7pm
Location: TBA

For weeks now, mass protests have shaken Turkey and captured the imaginations of those who stand for freedom and equality. What began as a defense of Istanbul's main park against plans to change it into a shopping mall has become a nationwide outpouring of protest against an increasingly conservative and repressive government. With a new crackdown in Taksim Square, the hub of the protest movement, the situation continues to unfold. 

Join us for a discussion about the struggle in Turkey, its implications for the global struggle against inequality, and how we can build solidarity here in the U.S.
