Citizens of the world,


  We are Anonymous.

This is a message from the global conscience of the Internet, and beyond, a message from our hearts.

On May the 30th, the Turkish people stood up against the destruction of the Taksim Gezi Park in Istanbul.

Since then they have united their voice and are fighting an outrage against their cultural inheritance 
and History.

We have witnessed those happenings are not only about a park. We have witnessed that the reason why the people 
are protesting is much deeper.

Does the turkish prime minister, AKA Tayyip Erdogan, really believe the world is unable to understand what is 
happening in his country now ?
The Internet is a place gathering all knowledge and beliefs of Humanity, including of course its History.

While the protestors of #OccupyGezi have to stand violence of the police tonight for the 13th day, as we write 
this letter to the world, we would like every human being to know what is really happening in this country.

The people of Turkey, united as #OccupyGezi does not stand only for nature.

The reason why they stand is because Gezi Park represents a historical turning point for them.

Actually,  Gezi Park is the place where a rebellion leaded by a reactionary group failed on the 31st of 
March 1909, a rebellion which aimed to restore  absolutism in Turkey. And the result of this event was 
considerable damages to the Taksim Military Barrack which was  built in 1806, during the reign of the 
Ottoman Sultan Selim III and was finally razed in 1940 for the restoration of Taksim square.
That is to say how the symbolic charge of the Gezi park is high.

Destruction of Gezi Park symbolises the reverse of those events. And this is the main reason why the 
people of Turkey now demands  Tayipp Erdogan’s abdication. And this is obviously why the ones who 
peacefully found the courage to stand up and resist oppression, now have  to face violence of repression. 

History is repeating itself there, just like it happened so many times, in so many regions of our planet, 
as those greedy of power always worked to destroy the Rights the people forged with its faith and blood.

Therefore, #OccupyGezi is a fight for Democracy occuring in Taksim Square.

And yet more, what takes place there is not only recalling into question democracy in Turkey. What takes 
place there is the future of the middle-east, and we dare to say the future of the world.

Turkey as a democracy was founded in 1923 by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk in Ankara.
The man fought to save the independance of his Turkish brothers.

He not only used his military abilities to do so, but he also found the courage in himself to make the change 
everybody wanted.

Just like some people did those years everywhere on the planet.

Our freedom, worldwide, is unfortunately at stake in so many ways, and our ancestors are watching.

The Resistance to oppression in human beings is just like a phoenix, reborn ever from its ashes and 
will always be.

We saw those last years several manifestations of this desire of freedom popping out in heroes of nowadays.

Our thoughts go to Julian Paul Assange, Bradley Edward Manning, Jeremy Hammond, Aaron Hillel Swartz, 
Edward Joseph Snowden, and all those taking action for a better world than the one which is drawing.

Many people paid tribute to their actions, but the question they have to ask now, is “who am I ? 
Am I a hero of the kind ? “
The answer is inside you, and provided that it is your will, no doubt you are.

For all those reasons, AnonsTurkey asks to Occupy-World, Anonymous and every citizen worldwide to become 
the full support providers of the #OccupyGezi movement.

Media in Turkey have been silenced by the government and it is now time for us to take in our hands their 
mission at a worldwide level.

Support the light of Resistance that is now glowing in Turkey : feed it with your support.

Weaken dark aims spreading the word, make no citizen on this planet ignore this letter from ages.

Help your brothers in Turkey to clear out their country from a government that has ceased to work for its people.

Just find in yourself the will to make a change, each little part of action is to make change.

Remember the voice of Humanity cannot be silenced when it has united.

We work for Global,
We Work as one World
Knowledge is our power
Media our weapon
