Turkey 2013 Protests

At the beginning of the protest people said it started from social media. Erdogan is blaming social media for the development of the protest and this was backed up by the traditional media that was not transmitting anything from the square where events were happening.

I found out about the protests on 2nd of June, while reading this article on ablog. Nevertheless, 15 days later, things are getting much worse in Turkey and protests are similar to a revolution now, but only 5 or maybe 10 friends from my facebook/ twitter list are interested on what is happening there.

Social media is not doing anything without the help of traditional media. In Romania TV news stations are not interested in the subject and I find it very sad.

More interesting is how VICE is transmitting live or document the facts.
