We would like to invite you to the event

Occupy Gezi Parki: Eyewitness Accounts

The recent events in Turkey have left a strong mark on many of us, and keep opening questions on peaceful protest, democracy and the power to express one’s opinions.

On Tuesday we have the chance to hear direct eyewitness’ accounts from some Kent students who have spent some days at Gezi Parki and Taksim Square in Istanbul.

The event will be organised as a roundtable on Democracy in Turkey and the recent events of protest.

Short videos and documentaries will be screened and discussed.

Schedule:

Tuesday, June 18th.

– 6.15: meeting with Turkish coffee and nibbles

– 6.30: presentation starts.

Location:

University of Kent, KLT 4 – Keynes College
