Turkey protest graffiti

#OccupyDezi is the English-language hashtag supporters of the Turkish protesters have been using on Twitter. From Occupy Turkey Graffiti on Facebook.

Graffiti as the voice of Turkish protest

Many of the images from the riots in Turkey have featured protesters clashing with police, clouds of tear gas and bright flames, but on the edge of many of these images are snippits of graffiti. For many of the protesters, this has become a powerful form of communication for the world to better understand their plight. The Facebook page Occupy Turkey Graffiti has collected together many of these images.
