As you probably know an originally peaceful protest against development of an Istanbul city park (Gezi Park) has turned into a national crisis for the right-wing government of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Secular protesters unhappy with the Erdogan government’s attempt to “Islamify” Turkey are calling for the prime minister to resign. The unrest has spread across the country. It’s an increasingly serious situation and hopefully there won’t be violence (or further violence).
I was told that the protesters are using a combination of Twitter and the the online yellow pages (Yellowpages.com.tr) to organize. Specifically they’re using business profile pages to specify protest locations. Below is a tweet that cites a bank location as a meeting point, referencing the bank’s YP profile page:
Here’s the page that it points to:
The tweet above basically says meet at 12:30 in front of this bank.
