Gezi Park en opstand in Turkije
-  Marianne Maeckelberg en Brandon Jourdan
Een verhaal van de bezetting van Gezi Park, de gewelddadige ontruiming ervan en de opstand die er op volgde.
In late May 2013, political unrest swept across Turkey. In Istanbul, a large part of the central Beyoğlu district became a battle zone for three consecutive weeks with conflicts continuing afterward. The protests were initially aimed at rescuing Istanbul’s Gezi Park from being demolished as part of a large scale urban renewal project. The police used extreme force during a series of police attacks that began on May 28th 2013 and which came to a dramatic head in the early morning hours of Friday May 31st when police attacked protesters sleeping in the park. As the images of the heavy-handed policing spread across the world, the protests quickly transformed into a popular uprising against the Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and his style of authoritarian rule.
This short documentary tells the story of the occupation of Gezi Park, the eviction on July 15, 2013, and the protests that have continued in the aftermath. It includes interviews with many participants and footage never before seen.
Brandon Jourdan and Marianne Maeckelbergh have been traveling, researching, and making short films about the recent wave of uprisings that have spread across the globe. They will screen their short documentary “Taksim Commune: Gezi Park and the Uprising in Turkey” and go into discussion on the context and consequences of the protest and the uprising that followed.
