The voice of the people will be heard today pushed and under-girded by content, social media, communications and the passion of the day. The initial protection of a park spread to mayhem as the seeds of social and political justice took root.

The passion to conserve Gezi park to protect green space from redevelopment has said to have brought about others to the protest that BBC reported “Protests began 13 days ago that widened, with demonstrators accusing Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan of becoming increasingly authoritarian and trying to impose conservative Islamic values on a secular state.”

Politico reported, “A peaceful demonstration against the park’s redevelopment that began more than two weeks ago has morphed into the biggest test of Erdogan’s authority in his decade of power.”

The power of conservation and green is a point of great importance as cities are structuring around grey versus green. The impact of loss of parks flag the discontinuity of government and community’s understanding of gathering, social and places of play versus the commoditization of social spaces for profit. The role of green represents community and social justice, as well as spaces not corrupted by profiteering.  The economy pushes emotions to the forefront.

Poltico reported that, “The unrest has spread to 78 cities across the country, with protesters championing their objections to what they say is the prime minister’s increasingly authoritarian style and his perceived attempts to impose a religious and conservative lifestyle in a country with secular laws — charges he rejects.”

The outcome of this tragic event has led to “four dead, including a policeman, and about 5,000 have been treated for injuries or the effects of tear gas, according to the Turkish Human Rights Foundation.” The unrest at this time still continues but is not escalating. The problem is to determine how to mitigate the global connection to this sentiment from a country that has traditionally been innovative and socially adoptable.

This tragedy began with the emphasis on the park and at the close of this tragedy that focus can be on its conservation.
