TODAY’S – Baton, water cannon, tear gas, detentions, beatings — again

Baton, water cannon, tear gas, detentions, beatings — againMay Day “celebrations” have become a hell for all of us instead of being a holiday for workers. The polarization within society grew stronger on that day. Because this is what our prime minister wished. There is no further explanation for this. We know that when Taksim Square is open for celebrations, which was the case in 2011 and 2012, and when the police acts calmly, May Day can be celebrated peacefully. Despite acknowledging this, why didn’t the prime minister allow [the celebrations to be held in Taksim]? Is it because Taksim is associated with the Gezi resistance? Is it because allowing them would mean showing weakness to opponents or compromising with street demonstrators?AMBERIN ZAMAN, TARAF
