Turkish Protests

   Protesting in Turkey is now moving into its second week. This all started with Prime Minister Erdogan trying to force an authoritarian government onto his people. People were having a peaceful protest and the police came in with the tear gas and water cannons to break it up. Protesting has been going on daily in many Turkish cities ever since.
   The Prime Minister is trying to bring Religion into the government and the people want the two to be separate. They want their freedoms and they are willing to march for it. More to come, I'm sure.
