Ahmet Atakan, 22, who was killed on Monday night during a confrontation with police in the Turkish city of Antakya
Rónán Burtenshaw writes:
The Turkish protests have seen a major escalation in the last few days. Protests at ODTÜ in Ankara and by the Alevite community in Tuzluçayır culminated in a sixth death on Monday. Tuesday then saw mass demonstrations across Turkey in memory of Ahmet Atakan, marking the biggest single day of activity since early summer.
…If commentators were predicting the petering out of the Gezi Park resistance then September will have given them a surprise. The movement seems in better shape to build towards the new year than it seemed a month ago. The latest wave will need to survive what is likely to be a significant escalation in state violence and develop beyond mass protests into efficient, democratic structures in communities and workplaces. If it can then it seems likely that the government is in for a long autumn and winter.
