Good evening to everyone! I was in Berlin two weeks ago and i had the chance of following a demonstration organized by TGB, the Turkish Youth Union (http://www.tgbinternational.org/) established in 2006 first in Turkey and afterwards worldwide. When i spoke with Kurtulus, one of the organizers of the protest (also held in the same day in all the major German cities) he explained me that Erdogan’s government is actually like a dictatorship, given the fact that the Army has no more power and that the media are under a relevant control of the government.
Other reasons of criticism are represented by the fact that the AKP government managed to operate a revolution in the school systems, undermining the principles of laity and influencing the little kids. Journalists and activists have been arrested in Turkey in the last year even long before that the protests for Gezi Park started. You can have a look at thedemonstration in the following photogallery. Stay tuned!
