We the people have found our voice.
(NYC General Assembly, September 27, 2011)
If it’s our sharing that makes us powerful, why return to normal?
This life is more worth living than the one we left behind.
(Leaflet, Solidarity March with Occupy Wall Street, October 5, 2011)
How do our voices of dissent encounter each other?
Do we really want to merge our raging cacophony into a unified political agenda?
What if the voice of the people is always in a mode of becoming?
Welcome to the hidden track of Occupy Wall Street:
We are discovering new ways in which our desires can resonate together.
This space is our sonogram of potential.
Recorded in Kosovo a few weeks after the war in the summer of 1999. It was my first experience of war and I met some amazing and fantastic people. I drove there from Geneva with a swiss guy with a lot of experience of working in the Balkans and just as we were approaching Pristina he turned to me and said 'Brian, I wonder what makes you cry. Yes I wonder what makes you cry' I soon found out.
Football passion is beyond everything else in Turkey. Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Besiktas fans got together and marched to Taksim square to support Gezi Park protests in Istanbul on June 8th 2013. For many years these football fans have never participated in social act as a whole. This historical moment is called the march of Istanbul United from now on.

Your first duty is to preserve and to defend Turkish Independence and the Turkish Republic forever. This is the very foundation of your existence and your future. This foundation is your most precious treasure. In the future, too, there may be malevolent people at home and abroad, who will wish to deprive you of this treasure.
If some day you are compelled to defend your independence and your Republic, you must not hesitate to weigh the possibilities and circumstances of the situation before doing your duty. These possibilities and circumstances may turn out to be extremely unfavourable.
The enemies conspiring against your independence and your Republic may have behind them a victory unprecedented in the annals of the world. It may be that, by violence and trickery, all the fortresses of your beloved fatherland may be captured, all its shipyards occupied, all its armies dispersed and every corner of the country invaded. And sadder and graver than all these circumstances,those who hold power within the country may be in error, misguided and may even be traitors. Furthermore, they may identify personal interestswith the political designs of the invaders.
The country may be impoverished, ruined and exhausted. Youth of Turkey's future, even in such circumstances it is your duty to save Turkish Independence and the Republic.
You will find the strength you need in your noble blood.
