Turkish Police Run Over Protesters with Tanks
In the midst of a media blackout during the protests in Turkey, disturbing video has surfaced of a government water cannon tank intentionally mowing down crowds of protesters. Yesterday we received a report from Istanbul that:
They gathered and marched. Police chased them with pepper spray and tear gas and drove their tanks over people who offered the police food in return. Two young people were run over by the tanks and were killed. Another young woman, a friend of mine, was hit in the head by one of the incoming tear gas canisters. The police were shooting them straight into the crowd. After a three hour operation she is still in Intensive Care Unit and in very critical condition. As I write this we don’t know if she is going to make it.
