Pepe Escobar :: Erdogan riskes the 'must go' path #OccupyGezi #Turkey #Tayyip

Pepe Escobar :: Erdogan riskes the 'must go' path #OccupyGezi #Turkey #Tayyip | whatshappeninginTurkey | Scoop.it

Is this the Turkish Spring? No, at least not yet. Is Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan the new Mubarak? No, at least not yet.

History keeps warning us it takes just a spark to light a political bonfire. The recent spark in Istanbul was provided by a small group of very young environmentalists organizing a peaceful sit-in, Occupy-style, in Taksim Square to protest the planned destruction of one of the city center's few remaining public green spaces, Gezi park.
