Turkey protest graffiti

Translation: "We now have six stars. Tanks are coming." The reference is to the game Grand Theft Auto, when the player attracts enough attention from police and reaches the maximum wanted level, resulting in the army and tanks being sent out for their arrest. Unknown source.

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.
